First of all thanks for any help!
Here's the setup: a niece is getting married and the clan is gathering in Santa Monica...we'll be having a Friday night dinner together. (This is not the rehersal dinner)
Many are coming from New York and Cleveland and other places so we'd like to be able to talk and not shout.
We know someone does not like Mexican and no Italian (they can get that in NYC) and no sushi.....so, maybe steak? or someplace with something for everyone? Or???
Price? Just give me your ideas and I will check it all out from there.....I'll take all ideas from very expensive to mid-range and whatever.....just good food and a place that can take a group and that we can enjoy each others company.
Also, it can be Venice or Marina Del Ray as well as Santa Monica.....(we'll be having dessert and drinks at the Fairmont Miramar later in the evening hosted by the grooms family)
I don't live in LA at all so I am unfamiliar with the restaurants so that is why I need help.
Thanks for any help! (This is in July)
