Birthday dinner suggestions

The grandparents are coming into town to take us out for our son's 17th bday -- something quintescentially LA would be fun for them. We know Pasadena, Glendale, SGV pretty well but might like to venture downtown or partway west. My son is a very adventurous eater with great taste. His best friend is very very picky (pasta, simple pizzas, steak). Grandparents are pretty classy. Cost isn't a huge issue, but i don't want it to look like we're taking advantage of their generosity (<$40-50pp would be good - we're unlikely to drink much). Locally I'd probably pick Shiro, Maison Akira, Bistro 45 or Tre Venezie. I'd welcome advice to help us expand our culinary horizons. Thanks.
