I'm going to L.A. (from N.Y.C.) for a few days of work this week, and my boss has offered to take me to lunch anywhere I want on Wednesday, as long as the cost doesn't put a huge debt in the company's substantial red ink. I'll be coming from West Hollywood, he'll be leaving from Santa Monica, and we'd like to meet roughly in the middle.
So, where is he taking me? I'd rather not leave the choice to him, since he's lived in L.A. for 30 years and tends to revisit the same spots over & over.
