I'm visiting friends (one a former NYer) and am interested in "low end" restaurants as opposed to "high end" restaurants - more ethnic. Interested in thai, vietnamese, middle eastern, mexican - almost anything except chinese, and even then. Not that interested in American - though I will have an In n' Out burger and a fish taco. Spending a few days in LA then going to Montecino Have also read " high end restaurants for NYer" thread - any other suggestions would be appreciated as I want to take them out for dinner .
Thanks for your help and time.
