I need an early lunch recommendation. I am in Brentwood, my dining companion is coming up from OC and has an after-lunch meeting in Gardena (but can come further north for lunch).
Person A likes: anything that is farm-to-table/seasonal, seafood, sushi, japanese
Person B likes: seafood, sushi, salads, chicken, japanese
Budget--not looking for a cheap place, it needs to be a nice place in both food and atmosphere, but not "5 star nice" (or 5 star price, for that matter). (Mariscos Chente, while delicious, wouldn't be the right kind of place for this! :-)
Atmosphere: not too noisy--need to be able to hear each other talk. Pleasant atmosphere is important.
