I just found out I have to meet some clients in Anaheim next week - does anyone have any recommendations for places to eat? I don't intend to rent a car, and will probably get around on the metro (is that even a good idea? I've never been to L.A. and don't know the best ways to get around).
Also, I'm meeting a friend on Sunday and will probably head out to Venice Beach/Santa Monica - maybe Chinatown - to do the touristy thing and hang out - any recommendations for good eats around there? We will have a car and do not have any plans yet - so I'm open to any advice here.
I like most types of foods, and am mostly interested in those everyday places that locals eat at. No chains, please (unless it's a really good regional chain). I'm not really on a budget, but also not really interested in hitting the fine dining places either.
