My in-laws are coming to town and would like to take my husband and me out to dinner to celebrate my husband's achievement of a professional goal. Here are the guidelines:
-Price is about $50/pp total (including alcohol)
-Somewhere between Santa Monica and West Hollywood. (We don't want to go too far because we'll have to pay a babysitter and don't want to get stuck in traffic for one of our rare nights out. We are in Westwood.)
-No asian food
-Nothing intimidating atmosphere-wise or food-wise. We've been to Craft and The Bazaar and my father-in-law was very uncomfortable.
-No seafood only places
-Decent wine list
As an example, my in-laws loved Orris. We would probably go there again, if it were still around. Sotto is at the top of my list right now.
