I promised to take a casual friend out to dinner for his birthday. He wants to go to someplace romantic (so he can take future dates there if it's good) and I HAVE to go someplace inexpensive. I'd love to get out of there for around $60/70 in all.
We are in West Hollywood, Hollywood area, I don't mind driving a bit but would like to stay relatively in the area.
Oh, and he doesn't like sushi (if you can imagine that!).
THANK YOU so much in advance for any and all suggestions!!!
