So my kosher-keeping friends are visiting from New York and want to take my boyfriend out to dinner. They will eat out at restaurants but will not eat meat unless it is kosher. I am a former vegetarian who still prefers to go light on meat. My boyfriend likes his meat and kind of whines when I cook a vegetarian dinner, but he'll go with almost anything. Neither I nor my boyfriend keep kosher (but I did when I was a child so I know the deal).
Does anyone have a good recommendation of somewhere to go in Venice (where we live) or Marina del Rey (where my friends are staying) that is either kosher or vegetarian/vegetarian-friendly to satisfy everyone? We are looking for fairly nice (more than just salads and sandwiches) but not anything expensive or extravagant.
