Hi all. Group of eight from East Coast going to be in LA mid-May to attend my son's graduation from USC. Looking for recommendations for a place to have a post-graduation dinner celebration. Two of our group are vegetarians, another is almost vegetarian but occasionally eats fish, another gets nervous if there are more than three ingredients combined on an entree, while the rest of us are more diverse and adventurous in our choices of cuisine. We'd like a place that is unique to SoCal, reasonably classy but not super-pricey, quiet enough that we can carry on a conversation without having to shout. Preferred locations would include USC/downtown area, Santa Monica, LAX area or Marina del Rey.
