I'll be visiting LA Wednesday-Friday. On such short notice, for which I apologize, can anyone of you chowhounds suggest some place to grab a delicious dinner? Of course, one doesn't know where to begin, but something distinctly LA/Californian--something that we are not so well endowed with in the cold Northeast--would be what I am looking for. Authentic Mexican, for instance.
I am staying in Santa Monica on Ocean Ave.
Thanks in advance.
