Will be making the annual "parents' weekend" trip from Rochester, NY, to see daughter at USC. Previous visits have, thanks to Chowhound help, gotten me to Water Grill, Yamashiro, Spago, Pink's, Kokomo Cafe, & El Cholo. Enjoyed them all. Will be coming with the same sense of openness to wide-ranging, diverse recommendations and a willingness to travel about the greater LA area to try things. I'd welcome any suggestions. Thanks.
