Mom's Birthday--HELP!

It's my mother's birthday later this month. Looking for an affordable place (anywhere from 10-50 a person). Like the Westside, but can branch out a bit.

Must be good for children and loud people...I love my family, but they're loud. (around 10 people will attend)

Type of food is a hard one. Family likes traditional things...good salads, good chicken, good meat. Family Style is fine.

Loves BBQ, Italian, Chinese, American (steak and prime rib).

Help!!!

Diane,

In another post you said you had a great brisket recipe that used beer...can you share that recipe with me? This is the first brisket I will be making and sadly, I don't have my father's recipe (he recently passed away) to go by since he knew it by heart and never wrote it down for me.

Thanks!

Any suggestions?

Wedding In Vegas

I'm trying to plan my friend's wedding in Las Vegas and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for good restaurants with private rooms that would hold around 65. The bride and groom love fish, but all types of food are welcomed.

I want it to be as classy as possible, but we are on a budget...so ideally, $30-45 per person would be the range.

The place would have to serve alcohol as well, but we would be open to bringing our own for a low corkage fee.

Thanks!

Make Your Owns

I've been searching for a Make Your Own Salad place for a while. There's Salads Galore on Wilshire, but it closes at 3pm and isn't opened weekends.

Is there a great make your own salad place that is not a Souplantation or Gelson's Salad Bar? The kind of place that you request what you want in it and they do all the work for you?

California Chicken Cafe on Westwood between La Grange and Olympic. Great Chinese Chicken Salad there. A large is $8.25 and is huge. Great chicken, great wraps as well.
