I will be in town with 6 family members (7 total) to celebrate my father's graduation from law school. The graduation is taking place at Skirball Center, and we will be staying nearby - so I think West Hollywood/Beverly Hills are the closest neighborhoods, though I may be wrong.
I am looking for a restaurant for dinner on Friday. Something with good quality food, a little more special occasion in terms of ambiance, but not too expensive (would be good if most entrees are under $20). Also, california/american cuisine, or italian, would be best. Trying to please a wide variety of palates :)
Let me know if you have any great ideas - I am all ears and thankful for suggestions!
