Dinner tonght in LA for an SF'er

Celeste | Mar 12, 200412:55 PM     4

Hallo all,

I'm heading down to LA earlier than planned today so will be in town for dinner. I am doing AOC tomorrow evening (after a rather amazing meal at Lucques last time I was in town a year ago), and am looking for a place tonight that will:

- take in two ladies fresh from a long road trip (we won't be super scruffy, but won't be looking real dolled up either)
- has good food and a good glass of wine (we are fairly open on cuisine)
- most importantly, we won't have to wait two hours to sit (we don't mind sitting at a bar) as we'll be hungry and crabby from the road
- is not extremely difficult to find. (like Le Deux Cafe was when I was down a few years ago)

Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance from an SF hound.

Since we'll already be on the road, I don't really have a neighborhood preference.

-Celeste
