Our son is now a student at USC. My husband and I have been there twice and, after two miserable bad-coffee-shop-type experiences, quickly realized that our normal habit of just walking out of the hotel and finding a place to eat won't work there. The taco stands do look inviting for a quick bite, and I'm sure we'll do some tasting in the future, but I'm more in the market for a sit-down dinner, ideally at a place with at least a minimal wine list. It doesn't have to be high-end, and we love experimenting with all types of food. And we're acknowledging that we'll probably have to give up our usual foot-powered foraging habits, and get back in the car. But because we are so clueless about LA and are hesitant about driving far in a city we don't know, I was hoping there might be some recommendations out there for interesting places that are reasonably accessible from the USC area. All suggestions gratefully appreciated!
