Is Luna Piena in Midtown open?

I feel terrible to be asking this during the hurricane. I'm hosting a 15 person pre-marathon dinner there and have been unable to get through on their phone line. Anyone know if it's open?

Recommendations Needed for 30th Birthday Dinner

Thanks for the Bar Agricole reco, I'll have to check that out.

I think La Mar charges too much because of the location and views, neither of which really matter to me since I live right by the water anyway. I thought the food at Prospect as just not that spectacular, so even though the meal was on the company dime, I felt like we had overpaid. It was back when Ravi Kapur was still the chef though, so maybe things have changed.

Recommendations Needed for 30th Birthday Dinner

Thanks for passing those along. I had actually already seen those postings, but am not a big fan of Prospect, 25 Lusk or La Mar, so was hoping for new recos.

Recommendations Needed for 30th Birthday Dinner

I'm looking for a restaurant to host my 30th birthday dinner for a group of probably 8-10 people. Here are some things I'm looking for:

- Good food: I'm not particular on the type, but want something delicious. I will after all be doing Frances and TFL within two weeks of this dinner, so I want something that will stand up.
- Not terribly expensive: ~$20-25 per entree, ~$10-12 for drinks
- Location: Definitely in the city, probably getting drinks at Rye in the TL afterwards, so somewhere relatively close to there would be great. If not, Mission and SOMA would be my preferences, but really looking for any good options wherever they may be.

Chinese Restaurant Recommendation for 60th Birthday Party

I'd be open to a longer drive if it's a significant upgrade. Family is mostly coming in from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, so if it's not amazing for Bay Area standards, it's going to be far from what they're used to. So if you have other recos, I'd greatly appreciate them. Thanks!

Chinese Restaurant Recommendation for 60th Birthday Party

Anything within a 25-30 min drive of Sunnyvale would work if you've got other suggestions. Thanks!

Chinese Restaurant Recommendation for 60th Birthday Party

I'm looking for a recommendation for a great Chinese restaurant that we can host my dad's 60th birthday party at in December. We have guests coming in from Asia, so must be authentic and can do high quality banquet food. The party is for ~20-25 people and we'd like to stay relatively close to Sunnyvale.
