Looking for a restaurant where I can have a birthday dinner (for about 12 late 20ish friends) and then invite others to come later for the bar scene. Did this a few weeks ago at Jones - but the food was mediocre and the bar scene was ridiculously busy. Did this last year at Beachwood and it was fun - but a little far. Happy to eat anywhere from Hollywood to Brentwood - and I wouldn't want dinner to go over $50. Any ideas would be great.
