Catered Lebanese food in Pasadena

I am hosting a dinner at my house for my husband’s birthday and I would like to serve catered Lebanese food.
Can someone recommend a good Lebanese / Middle Eastern catering service in the area?
Thanks!

Sunset Blvd

I am considering dinner at Eveleigh, Katana or the Church Key.
Drinks at Bar Marmont, SkyBar at Mondrian...
Is it hard to get into those bars/restaurants?
Would I need resevations?

Sunset Blvd

The idea is to leave the car in the hotel so both of us can drink without worrying.
So I would prefer to just eat and drink on the strip. No driving for us that night is part of my idea of fun!

Sunset Blvd

I am surprising my husband with a one night stay at The London in West Hollywood for our 16 year wedding anniversary.
Because of the kids we hardly ever party at all.
So...
What bars and restaurants are your favorite ones on The Sunset Strip?
We are both in our early 40's and I would like to take him to a nice romatic dinner and then bar hopping.
Like in the young old days =)
Thanks!

Here I am reporting back to all of you! I finally bought the large fruit tart at Whole Foods. It was beautiful, not very expensive and really, really good!

Large Fruit Tart

Where do they sell the best large fruit tart in LA??
Hopefully near or in Pasadena?? I love the Gelson's (Viktor Benes) one but they closed the pasadena location!

Kid Friendly places with play area

I just went to Golden Road Brewery for the first time and although I didn't love the food, I really liked the concept. A place where parents can have a drink and hangout while kids play and have fun at the same time...
Does anyone know of any other places in LA and surrounding areas were both kids and parents can have a good time at the same time??
