I am new to the LA area, actually live out in SGV, but my extended family is coming in in a couple of weeks - arriving at LAX at 5:30 on Friday. So, rather than waste many hours in traffic driving them out to pasadena, thought we should take advantage and have a nice dinner in the area, maybe take a walk on the pier or something.
Sister from Colorado - so always happy to get seafood when near the coast
Brother in law - meat and potatoes kinda guy, but has been able to tolerate many a foodie
adventure with my family
Father - from NYC, will try anything once, getting older so biggest restaurant problem is too much noise.
Was thinking California style but up for anything worth it
possible celebrity sittings might be fun for them but never at the expense of food quality
price range 50+ per person or so.
your help on this mater and all of the other advice I gather from reading the board in general is much appreciated
