Hi there. We're visiting my parents in Thousand Oaks this week, and they have graciously offered to watch our kids so that my wife and I can have a nice dinner out. The trouble is, we don't know the area very well and TO is pretty desolate when it comes to restaurants.
If you had a single night where you and your wife could relax, have great food, and enjoy the atmosphere, where would you go? We are looking for places that are nice but not stuffy, and would prefer newish, interesting food rather than, say, French classics.
I know that's a pretty vague description but we are open to anything and desperate for suggestions. Because of location, we are looking for places in Santa Monica, Westwood, or points North / West of there.
