I'm an SF hound who's staying in Playa del Rey for two nights, and am planning on having dinner with my Pasadena-based parents out near where I'm conferencing (Santa Monica/West LA/etc.). Drago came to mind via some Jonathan Gold-love I read a while back, but I'm surprised by the absence of enthusiasm/comments here in the LA boards -- is this just a case of its having been around a while? (I should note that there's not much in the way of criticism, either.) Or are there other places you'd steer me to in its place?
Notes: 1) I'm looking for a great meal -- not an expense account meal. 2. While my dad's wildly adventuresome, my mom's not -- so I'm looking at something between new American and old Continental....
