Nice choices Bill, I looked at Flemings earlier in the day.
Lawry's looks nice but a bit pricey.
To be frank I'm a tad concerned that if things get too far above the 40-45 per person mark we might start pricing some people out of the event. That is why I set a price range question in the poll. I know several calgunners down this way are students at the many various colleges around.
Two places I saw that piqued my interest since they are also hotels were these ones:
Not too bad but a bit away from Burbank airport.
Good pricing on the 'Build it yourself ' buffet, close to the airport and in a decent area, Studio City. This one looks cool just for the name.
Here are the buffet menus: http://www.slhotel.com/menu_dinner.pdf
Scroll down to the Studio City Buffet
My choices would be these:
Salads: Mixed Garden Green Salad, Classic Caesar Salad, Marinated Artichoke Salad, Tri-Color Rotelli Shrimp Salad and Chinese Chicken Salad.
Entree: Roasted Tri-Tip With a Cabernet Demi-Glace, Garlic and Herb Grilled Pork Loin and Grilled Soy Ginger Salmon.
Accompaniments: Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Wild and Long Grain Rice and Seasonal Fresh Vegetables.
Desserts: Assorted Pastry Display and Fruit Salad. (Dessert is kind of weak but we could probably get them to switch out for something like Triamisu and Cannolis.)
This Buffet come in around 25-30 per person.
