I should have done more planning, but the guy I am dating is visiting LA this weekend for 48 hours. I haven't lived here since I was a kid so there are a bunch of places that friends are recommending, but I trust this blog the more than my friends, so I turn to you to vet their recommendations or suggest your own.
Background details: We will be staying in Silverlake, ideally would like to spend one day on the westside and another on eastside. We are unlikely to make it to San Gabriel Valley. I'm a vegaquarian but he will eat mostly anything. He likes interesting Thai or Indian.
We hail from SF, places there we like for reference are: Flour & Water, Wise Sons Deli, Haven, State Bird Provisions, but I also like the veggie burritos from Cancun taqueria.
Places in LA I'm considering:
On the westside- Sushi Zo, Gjelina, A-Frame, Sushi-Zo, Malibu Seafood.
Mid City- pizzeria mozza, Street, animal or Son of a Gun.
Eastside- I'm at a loss, my favorite place recently is in Downtown LA, Le Comptoir, but it appears to now only be open on Mondays and Tuesday. I am grateful that at least it is still open, but it isn't a possibility for the weekend. Aside from that in Silverlake friends are suggesting Cliff's Edge and in Echo Park, Red hill?
further afield: Saddle Peak Lodge or Inn at Seventh Reyes?
I only need to end up with 2 places for dinner and 2 for lunch. Hopefully places that don't need reservations to be made more than a day in advance.
PS I realize this is a bit all over the map, but that's where my head is at the moment.
