I respectfully request ideas for dinner tomorrow (Weds) night in either Venice or Santa Monica.
My old friends are in SoCal for the holiday(s) from DC, they are driving up from Orange County and we are meeting for dinner in between my 'hood and theirs.
Normally, I'd suggest i Cuigini but one of our party is pregnant and needs to go easy on the seafood. Another place I used to dig is Akbar (the one on the border of Venice/CC & Marina) but it just isn't the same without Nino and his wine selection. Lastly, for their comfort-level, it shouldn't be super-splurgy. Oh, and lastly, Nook can't take us at the time we want so that option is out.
