I have my mother and 15 year old brother coming into town this weekend. I am trying to find a few good restaurants for dinner/lunch that are around the Culver City area. However, I am completely willing to venture out to Westwood, Brentwood, Venice, or Santa Monica if they place is great.
The ideal would be a sit down restaurant which is casual attire appropriate. My brother is good about being trying things but I'm trying to find a place that still has some good basic fall back options for the reluctant eater. Pretty much a quieter restaurant with good food and good service would fit the bill. Cuisine wise, I am looking more on the Italian, America, French, or south of the Border. I try to stay away from Indian, Thai and the like when they come in.
Price range is on the moderate but nice end.
