Hi...I run a small photography business and finally have the opportunity to have my out-of-town contractors meet up with the rest of my LA team and I'd like to take everyone to dinner, my treat. I'm an eastsider myself, but I'd like to find a place convenient to the westside, too. Thinking somewhere between Koreatown to Santa Monica.
I'm looking for an affordable, yet tasty spot, interesting vibe, perhaps an ethnic dining experience for 10 to 12 people--and would love to find a place where I can bring wine/beer--although that's not imperative. I am thinking Mana in Koreatown, but also think the group would love a great Indian or Italian restaurant, too. Any ideas?
Thank you in advance!
