Casual dinner tomorrow night 3/15 - Westside but not too far west, and some other requirements

cookie monster | Mar 14, 201502:22 PM

Friend of mine from NYC is flying into LAX tomorrow with his college age son, and I plan to meet them for an early-ish dinner before they drive out to Palm Springs. Ordinarily I would just have them come to my neighborhood (Venice beach), but I know that with this weather traffic and parking will be horrible, and I don't want to inflict that on them in an unfamiliar area after they've spent six hours on a plane. I'm thinking West LA or Culver City might work - not too far from me, not too close to the beach, and easy for them to get on the 10 east afterwards. Open to cuisine, but it needs to be a place we can walk into without a reservation at 6:30 or so since I don't know exactly when they'll arrive. Mexican maybe? Seems to always go over well with visitors from the east coast.
