Visiting from SF. I've been put in charge of choosing out a dinner spot for 4, for Sat night. We are staying in Calabasas so someplace around there (eg woodland hills) is best.
We don't like chains unless small/local types. Don't like large banquet type places either. That famous place/lodge in the hills is too fancy. Brandywine sounded nice but my folks don't like traditional French (too rich) and this menu sounds similar.
Good Mexican maybe? (hear sagebrush cantina is better for drinks than food but could be nice sitting outside..) Other ideas?
Sorry this is so broad. I hate it when people send these types of questions to the SF.
