I'm more of a foodie but my non-date date is more about the trendy places (Katsuya, Katana...etc) So I'm trying to find a happy medium between the two. The place that I'm looking for should have a good atmosphere but doesn't shove romance down our throats. (I'm trying not to be too obvious) I'll generally eat anything. He doesn't eat pasta, bread, pork, or shellfish. I'm looking for something in the West LA area not too too far from Santa Monica. Open to places in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I'm trying to prove a point to someone who is super picky that a place doesn't have to be a scene to be good. I've thought of Mako, JiRaffe, Josie among others...but I definitely need help!
Thanks! All recommendations are much appreciated.
