Mexican Food Birthday Dinner

Hi! My family and I will be traveling to L.A. next week for business. It also happens to be my fathers birthday. I am looking for ideas on really good mexican food. We will be staying at the Hyatt Century Plaza in Century City so preferably something not too far from that. We don't mind driving but we don't want to try to get somewhere that is a hour drive either.

Just a fun, good place that perhaps even takes reservations. Great atmosphere a must! Thanks!

Birthday Party Location in Houston

I am looking for a fun place to have a small surprise b-day party for my mom in Houston. There will be approx. 20 people. I would like a place with a private room that is fun, not stuffy, laid back, but still nice. Any ideas? All types of food are fine, although I prefer no asian cusuine.

Mother Daughter Dining Help (theatre and night out)

My mother and I are headed to NYC for three nights in mid September. I like to have a list of resturants to choose from or reservations ahead of time otherwise we end up wandering around and settling on some sub par place in Times Square. I'm 26 and she is 58. We are NOT foodies nor do we need a fancy wine list. We like simple food that isn't hard to understand when reading the menu. We don't mind paying money for a good meal but prefer not to spend 75.00 pp on a piece of fish the size of a deck of cards. We are from Texas gulf Coast so we tend to lean towards seafood, southwestern style dishes and contemporary american. This doesn't mean we won't try new things.

Specifically I am looking for...

- a dinner spot for Thursday night before Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre
- a fun, one of a kind, place for dinner on Friday night
- a dinner spot for before or after Alter Boyz at Old World Theatre

Last time we were in NY we at at Mesa Grill and really like that. Some resturants that have be suggested by others include Shelley's, Redeye Grill, Las Palapa, Hell's Kitchen, Bar American, Whym and Eatery. Any help would be GREAT!

Casual Catering/Party Rooms in Houston

I am looking for a place to have a surprise birthday party for my mom in Houston. It will be for roughly 25-30 people. I don't want something super formal and would not like to spend over 1000k if possible. Any thoughts? No BBQ or chinese please. Anything else. Location isn't an issue. That is what cars are for. :)

Houston - Healthy Good Dining

Does anyone have any recommendations of a fun, good restuarant that serves healthy food. It is for my husband and I and he is not the health food type so a place that offers something for him would be nice. Any ideas?!?!

Anniversiary in Houston

Hi! My husband and I are looking for a great place to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversiary in the Houston/Clear Lake/Galveston area. A few notes:

- We are not huge foodies, basically we don't do the whole "fancy" food thing. We like menu items we can pronounce and that aren't super exotic. Call us sheltered, but that's just us. :)
- Price isn't a major issue
- We don't need a fancy wine list
- We like good food and good service in a great atmosphere.

Well, any suggestions? All food types encouraged except for Chinese or Sushi. Thanks!
