La Nacional for a B-day dinner?

LisaM | Apr 26, 2005 04:05 PM

I'm planning a b-day dinner for a bunch of girlfriends (10-12 of us) in a few weeks. I've never eaten there, but I'm thinking about La Nacional, as I've heard good things about the food. I AM a little concerned about the atmosphere. What I mean is, not all members of the group are Hounds (though most - if not all - are game), and I'm wondering about the comfort factor. I know it's not polished and chic; in fact, that's what appeals to me about it.

What can I expect in terms of vibe/atmosphere, service, pacing of the meal, and of course the chow itself?

Do you know if I can bring in an outside cake (this last question is pure laziness on my part, since I think it's a question for the mgmt)?

Thanks for any and all responses!
