I have family visiting in the next couple of weeks. I would love to take them to Little Tokyo, since my cousin who will joining us, had her honeymoon in Japan last year (about the same time). I know it's not going to be the same, but they haven't been there, so it's worth the try.
The whole family is an adventurous group of eaters. I would love to find a couple of different places to take them, say a lunch and dinner place. Obliviously, since I am paying, I would love to find bargains. But if an establishment is expensive but has good food, I think it is worth a try.
The food doesn't have to be Japaneses. If it is good and in the area, I would love to hear about it.
