Variations on this question have been asked here before (and answered quite well), but here's my specific dilemma:
We're an office of 30 people looking to have a holiday party at a restaurant, we'd prefer a private room in central area (Hollywood-ish, give or take a few miles), and to give you an idea of cuisine I've already been told by the boss that Korean BBQ is "too exotic." Oh yeah, and it needs to be on the less expensive side.
Last year the party was at Le Colonial, which apparently was quite a success - pre-arranged menu, "all you can drink" for a set price per head, semi-private seating and run of the upstairs bar for a change of scenery.
Obviously, feeding the office palate is not the typical CH quandry, but I'm looking to do it with as much flavor as possible (please save me from Benihana). Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
