Hi chowhounds! My group is hosting a small baby shower luncheon for 7 guests this Friday in the Palo Alto/Menlo Park area. I was originally just going to book the Empire Tap Room as I like their patio and their food is halfway decent, but the weather is cooling down so the patio isn't as appealing.
Can folks suggest a place that 1) will be conducive to a group of 7 and somewhat fast/prompt service (as we have to get back to work!), 2) simple/Californian cuisine (so as to appeal to the pregnant woman who can't have certain foods) and 3) hopefully reasonably priced (entrees under $20)?
