taking the teen to celebrate her birthday with a couple of friends. we've got reservations at ketchup (i already know the chowhounds' opinion of this place, but they're excited about the celebrity element). i considered 8 oz too, but they don't take reservations and we're going on saturday at 7pm.
oh, and the teen is a vegetarian, so there must be veg options on the menu.
any other suggestions for somewhere in the west l.a. area that's somewhat age appropriate?
