Help! need restaurant for my niece's sweet 16 on Halloween

so my lovely niece is turning 16 on Halloween and asked me to help her find a "cool/hip" restaurant to accomodate her and her 25 friends. she mentioned hard rock at universal, I mentioned c & o trattoria in the marina...she's not excited.

any recs in the LA vicinity..roughly $25 to $30 per person.

thx so much.

LA Chowhounds 1st visit next weekend

a great Italian place

hot dogs

steakhouse

LA Chowhounds 1st visit next weekend

We'll be in Chicago next Friday the 3rd and leaving Monday morning.
First visit for my husband and I. Main reason we're visiting is for the food.
We have great restaurants here in LA, but really want the whole Chicago experience.
I've been reading and reading and reading this board for the last couple of weeks and I don't know where to start.

as far as what we don't want: we don't necessarily want to go to a very fancy shmancy dinner, a steak house like Cut or Mastros here in LA. We really want great food, Chicago style.

Looks like most of the vote here on Chowhound is for Lou Malnati's for deep dish w/the butter crust.

how far is Hot Doug's from Downtown? we will not have a car.

We're definitely going to a Cubs game either Friday night or Sat or Sun afternoon.

we're staying at a friends condo in downtown close to many many pubs.

Honestly, I'm so confused right now that I can't think anymore.
any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated

mediocre cupcakeries

I picked up a few cupcakes and bite size cheesecakes at Nola Ice in Sherman Oaks. the baked goods are from Se la Vi Sweets. let me tell you...these lil goodies are to dye for! I got 3 flavors of the bite size cheesecakes: key lime, pumpkin and white choc chip... we couldn't stop eating them...I also bought 2 lemon raspberry baby cakes and 2 dulce de leche baby cakes...they're one of the best I've had.

btw, their shaved ice is amazing! so refreshing and sooo darn good.
the owners are super nice and friendly. definitely a worthy visit!

Dish to make a day ahead..no dairy

yes, in addition...oops, I almost forgot..I'm making a potato chip crusted salmon as well. is this enough food? I'm always worried I don't have enough.
should I forgot the penne and make a dish the night before and stick it in the oven???
also, it'll be the first time I'm entertaining this particular group of people so I do want to impress. I always seem to blank out.
thx

Dish to make a day ahead..no dairy

I'm having a little dinner party this coming week. I will be working all day and will only have about an hour to get everything ready for dinner when I come home.

I already have some appetizers...assortment of olives, peppers and bruschetta w/cannellini beans.

so far for dinner I'll be doing a quick chicken marsala, some roasted asparagus, maybe a penne w/pesto and peas...

can you please recommend a dish I can prepare the night before and stick in the fridge and just heat the night of??? just one catch, it has to be dairy free.

thanks so much

Cupcake bakery trend being replaced by french cookie bakeries?

a little off the subject, but we were at Laduree in Harrods last month and the girl at the counter said they may be opening a Laduree in NY. maybe they'll work their way west after that. ..if only we'd be THAT lucky.
