Recommendations for some friends visiting LA foodwise for the first time? (Starting out in Arcadia)

My friends are coming to LA from Vienna for 4 days for a wedding. They're staying in Arcadia, but they'll have a car, so if a place is far, it should really be worth the drive. Where do they need to go? (Planned trips involve picking up a friend in Burbank on a Sunday morning, and I think the rehearsal dinner is Korean (not sure if Korean BBQ or not)) A mix of affordable and expensiveish would be great.

I'm already planning on sending them over to Sea Harbour since they're so close to it and have never had Dim Sum. I'd love to convince them that they in fact *do* like Mexican food (Mexican food is terrible in Vienna!), but I need a place that's pretty guaranteed to be excellent. We were thinking of sending them over to Street or AOC for a more expensive dinner, though I imagine that's controversial. :) I'm at a loss for Thai that would be worth the drive. I've never been to Pho 79 but I know they're right next to it. They probably should have In-N-Out, and for my wife, Philippe's is a pretty essential LA experience. Help! There's just too much for 4 days!
