Everyone is so helpful on this board so I thought I'd throw my latest dilemma out for suggestions. I just joined a bookclub and the members are pretty spread out geographically. I think we would all be happy meeting at a quiet restaurant so that we could hear each other talk that doesn't mind us not being so quiet. It must be a not-too-expensive restaurant around the 101/405. The food should be good and "safe" for the ladies - italian or american fare with salads on the menu (you know, girly chow). Any suggestions?
