Hi all -
I'm a relatively recent transplant to LA, and my favorite restaurant review site has suddenly crashed and burned... so I was very excited to find this site wiht your wealth of knowledge and opinions!
I have two very discriminating friends coming in to town this evening, and I'm not sure where to take them. I'd like to go to SM, but I don't want anything too corporate (chain) or TOO pricey. These folk (and I) love quality, authentic food (of pretty much all cuisines) and comfortable atmosphere. Generally, we're interested in the places you're unlikely to find in typical AAA or Yahoo type guides.
Thus far I'm considering Ye Olde King's Head, Warszuza, Border Grill, and Snug Harbor.
