We're planning a weekend getaway to LA and would like to sample "california cuisine." We're looking for casual places with great-tasting food that won't break the bank. (We're not necessarily looking for "the best of"-sorts of places, just restaurants that serve meals that leave a smile on your face.) Also, we don't drink alcohol, so places where the wine selection is one of the main draws might not work for us.
Our searches of the LA Board for California cuisine discusssions are leaving us feeling that there is no cheap-eats option in this category. Are we wrong?
