Desperately need suggestions for a special late Sunday afternoon plan for 7 people which would include a place for a special birthday cocktail and then move to a restuarant for a delicious dinner. Requirements are delicious food and comfortable rather than trendy place. We are starting out at City Center so would be easier to stay west sideish but we are open to suggestions. Right now, we are thinking of the bar at the Essex House for a drink (is this a good idea - I've never been) and then Cesca for dinner. There must be someplace more interesting for the drinks - right? Any suggestions most appreciated.
