I'm putting together a family dinner for about five folks that include two young adult nephews and a "more mature" cousin. The cousin is actually a relatively adventurous eater, but prefers places where the music is really low, so we can talk - for example, she loved the food at Sotto, Picca and Ink, but just found the music too loud. My nephews see me as the aunt that takes them to the "hip" places with good selections of beer or wine and good food - they loved the Hungry Cat and Bludso's.
So I'm looking for a place in Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Century City, or LA West (near the Grove or Beverly Center or West Hollywood), that has good food but is not too "fuddy-duddy," and is relatively quiet.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
