I'm picking up my sweetie from LAX tonight at dinner time and since we've got to head home to the valley via the dreaded 405, I thought I'd take him to Bombay Cafe for dinner. But S. Irene gave the place a glowing review in yesterday's Times, so I'm going to stay away for a while. Any recommendations for something interesting, moderately priced, on the way up north? No Mexican or sushi, but all other options welcome. If all else fails we'll go to Sawtelle Kitchen. Thanks!
