My parents are coming to visit me in LA for the first time. So far I've made reservations at Animal and Rivera, and I also plan on taking them to Jitlada. Someone else recommended I take them to Pizza Mozza, but I couldn't get a rez, even though it's a month out. I want to take them to some of LA's finer, more interesting offerings, along the lines of Animal and Rivera, so if y'all think there are better options in that league please do share.
Definitely need to take them to get some solid Mexican food, too. So far the best I've had is Cactus on Beverly in/near Koreatown.
I'm living in Echo Park, btw, but willing to travel if the recommendation is strong enough.
