Will be visiting LA next week and was going to go to Crustaceans too....that is until I read the reviews here. Can you recommend some good restaurants in both Santa Monica and Pasadena (near the Promenade)? Californian, Asian Fusion, Italian, Continental in the range of about $30 to $60 per person. Casual or casual chic. Not too picky on type of food. Just good value for money and good food!
