Chowhounds, you've been so helpful for research for past trips to New Orleans, Los Angeles and Oahu, that I am hoping you can help me out!
I am looking for a restaurant that can accommodate a party of 12-14 people. We are traveling from Victoria and Vancouver BC, staying in the Capitol Hill area, and our primary mode of transportation is bicycles, so something central would be ideal.
To give you an idea of the places I have highlighted out of interest (with the understanding not all of these can accommodate large groups, more to highlight the type of place we like!):
The Walrus & The Carpenter
Bastille Cafe & Bar
Sitka & Spruce
My fellow traveler attempted reservations at a few places and reported "Generally, they are either going to charge us a minimum plate cost, won't split the bill, or have a rather inconvenient time (I like eating late but 10pm is too late for a 5 course meal!) I wanted to make a reservation for us at Ba Bar, but the website says they charge a minimum of $35 per person for tables over 6 or 8."
Any ideas? Thanks for any help!
