Mama's Hot Tamales/Taco-Man Catering?

Thanks! Yeah, I did a search, but lotsa taco caterers have trucks/carts/grills and this venue won't accommodate that. This Taco-Man does a buffet with chafing dishes that I think might work. Thanks for your opinion on the beans ...

Mama's Hot Tamales/Taco-Man Catering?

I know the tamales are great from Mama's.
Has anyone had an event full-service catered by them? If so, how'd it go?
I'm also considering Taco-Man.
This is for a 100 person event, and I want it to run real smooooth.
Any first hand experiences with either of these great companies?

Post Screening Dinner Fairfax Area

Looking for a casual, not too expensive but good food for a dinner; post-screening of indie film place to have dinner for about 20-30 people on a Monday night around 9pm.
Screening will be at Silent Movie Theatre/Fairfax HIgh School area in June.
A fun ethnic Mom and Pop place would be great ...
All suggestions appreciated.

Quiet, good food, East SFV

Hi ... Meeting up with a friend of many decades ago for early Sunday dinner. Haven;t seen each other in 30 years. YIKES!

Anywhere from Burbank to Encino geographic range okay. Quiet booths would be nice; with no rush, and decent food. Lots of catching up to do. Flattering lighting wouldn't hurt either. HAH!

He's from NC, well-travelled, literary type.

Have eliminated La Frite cause he used to take his ex to dinner there and we don't want any memories, but that's the type of place I'm thinking about. CAn anybody vouch for the noise level at Out Take Cafe?

Thought of Delmonico's but thought we might get rushed there. Valley Inn prolly too stodgy.

This is sounding like "Same Time, Next Year" ...

Ocean Avenue Seafood; pricey but yum. Great too for drinks and chatting over their appetizers (oysters, shrimp, calamari.)

Saturday Biz Lunch in Beverly HIlls

Yeah, I didn't really want to take them to a very very expensive place ... pane e vino is sounding good. I think the noise level there, too, will be tolerable. Kate Mantilini's dishes clashing can get deafening if you don't wangle a booth.

Ooooooh, that might work really well. I remember going there once and the patio was gorgeous. Thanks for the reminder.

Saturday Biz Lunch in Beverly HIlls

HELP!!!!

Out of town New York young but affluent publisher types want to meet for lunch in Beverly HIlls on Saturday .. weather should be nice. They're paying but I don't want to go as high as Spagos.

Patio would be nice and a not rush, rush atmosphere.

They are staying Olympic and Robertson area.

I was thinking Kate Mantillini's or Sofi's on 3rd (but Sofi doesn't do lunch).

It's been a long time since I was a Westsider (Valley girl now).

All suggestions truly, truly appreciated.
