Party of 10 around sgv

I've been tasked to find a place after graduation for a large party on a Friday night. The location can be anywhere from ELAC to the west sgv like Monterey Park, Pasadena or Arcadia.

It would be easy to go to a banquet. But I wonder what other spots are good for a large party. I'd be happy with $500 for a party of 10. Are there some good pubs with some good food and beer that's better than say yard house or BJs

Blue crab around DuPont circle.

Thanks for the tips. We still have a brunch tomorrow. Though after tonight, we might need to take it easy for brunch. ;)

Well I ended up at rose's luxury. My friend from Boston enjoyed it very much. Apparently there's not a lot of new American there. I enjoyed the mezcal negroni. We had the avocado dish(very pretty dish), the pork and lychee(feels kinda like a Thai salad), they threw a plate of cacio e pepe gratis(wow a lot of pepper), the eggplant and finally the catfish( gochujang). This is a lovely little place. The line took me by surprise even an hour before opening.
Edit: how did I forget? The brioche they serve had a wonderful brown flaky crust.

Right. We walked around tonight and decided to try the Russia house happy hour. I guess this is my friends idea of preparing for his wine certification. Haha
Will definitely consider the crab cakes tomorrow night. There seem to be some nice bistros around DuPont circle.

Ok good to know, thanks.

My friend and I are staying at DuPont circle. He says the Chesapeake bay blue crabs are a must try. Is this possible to have around here. Are there other local specialties to try while in dc?
I'd like to dine with in walking distance. Thanks!

rowland heights breakfast?

I've never been to this area for breakfast. I seem to only come up with Yi Mei which looks good. Any other non dim sum options for Saturday?
Also open to hacienda heights or diamond bar.

We'll make any cake for you at Quenelle...

I'm thinking about getting a birthday cake from here. I love their fruit sorbets and ice creams. Has anyone ordered cakes from this place?

Pork cheek at Asian or Latin markets?

I'd like to get 3 lbs of pork cheek for tomorrow. What's a good market around Burbank/glendale to get this cut? Vallarta? Alternately I can head to Arcadia tomorrow. I assume I can get this at a chinese market.

So outside of the chinese markets around SGV, are there groceries that carry this item? I've call some places and it doesnt seem that common. I'm mainly looking around the glendale/burbank/noho area. Gonna go check the local armenian places now.

Asian Box

Tried the pork and beef yesterday. To me it's better than shophouse. The protein was not over cooked like at shophouse.

Take out BBQ between Thousand Oaks and Burbank

The Pit BBQ on alameda and Glenoaks in Burbank has pulled pork or brisket empanadas served with chimichurri. Apparently the family came from Argentina to Texas. They also have wings which I haven't tried.

Pyromania at Chengdu Taste in Alhambra

I really enjoyed the wild yam and also the cold garlic noodles. This is a great place. Didnt get to try the fried cumin lamb as it was not available today. I enjoyed many of the dishes mentioned here.

Newport tan cang lobster dish

So I searched the site and the only post was in home cooking with no replys. I thought maybe those on the LA board might know some details about this dish. Is it fried in a wok first? I remember the fried garlic that gets mixed in. Is this a typical Cantonese dish or southeast Asian?
