We will be entertaining an older couple from New Zealand at an odd time on Sunday. We live in the valley, but they want to meet us along with another couple around 4 p.m. in the West L.A. area. I'm stumped, we'll be in two cars, they're not big drinkers, definitely no Asian or Mexican food. Probably heavy Italian is out too. Chicken & fish are good or a broad menu.
I don't want to eat dinner at 4PM! Help, what do I do with them for an hour or so and then an early dinner. Possibly a short walk on Rodeo Drive and then...
I really would like something a bit upscale, however these are casually dressed people. DH thought maybe we should head for Santa Monica and go to the Lobster, not a bad idea, but the weather might preclude it.
I want to hear suggestions from you hounds on where to eat and what to do with them in the interim.
Thanks in advance!
