Grandpa's in town, he wants to buy a fish dinner tonight, and he's never going to stop bitching about the small portions, strange service and high prices of the Hungry Cat, which eliminates it from contention (Don't get me wrong, I love it). And yes, the Water Grill is also going to be too pricy.
We're in Hollywood, so we're talking East of Beverly Hills, though the Valley or Glendale-ish could work.
Of course, if anyone knows what's outstanding at McCormicks (looking at the Burbank location) I'm all ears. Having had a couple of complete crap meals there a couple of years ago, I haven't been back lately.
