my husband is a huge food fan. It's always an important part of our trips. Chain restaurants are never OK with him unless it is a local chain. We are taking our 12 year old son also. We will be at The Redbury in Hollywood for 2 days & in Malibu for 3 days. Would love recommendations for those areas plus Santa Monica, Venice or nearby. We will have a car. Must haves are pizza- he will drive anywhere for amazing pizza-Mexican and margaritas, sushi (for me- guys won't eat it so maybe a place w/ other choices for them), good buger,local flare, etc.
Is Lawry's a must try? Also hubby mentioned a place that dips their sandwiches in au jus???
Thanks so much!!
