2 nights in LA area -- help a fellow chowhound!

Alan Divack | Jul 30, 2000 10:47 AM

We will be in the LA area for 2 dinners in August. We are actually going to be staying near family in Santa Barbara but are going to do the MGM/Disney and related stuff to keep the kids happy. Where should we eat????

I wanted above all to try Renu Nankorn, but it is apparently too late for that. (The possibility of eating at Renu Nankorn was actually one of the motivations for actually doing the trip!) I am most interested in things like Isaan Thai, Iranian, excellent provincial Mexican, stuff that is not that readily available in NY. I am also mighty intrigued by San Gabriel Valley chinese. Given only 2 days, what are the most important places to eat?

I know that this is the kind of question that I would disdain from someone visiting NY -- how can you expect to do it justice in only 2 nights, if they really want the experience they should live here, etc. -- but not the shoe is on the other foot and I realize the error of my provincial ways and feel much more empathic.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
