I'm looking for a restaurant to celebrate my birthday next month. I'd like a cozy, casual, yet festive place with comfort food at moderate prices (entrees $12-20). The ideal atmosphere would be Edendale Grill in Silverlake, but all the posts on this site say the food is awful. I also considered Pete's Cafe and Bar downtown, but don't know anyone who's had dinner there. Any comments or suggestions? I'd be willing to go anywhere from Santa Monica to downtown. Thanks!
