I've been browsing this site for a while now but this is my first posting, I'm hoping you can help.
I'm a grad student from Kenya over at USC and will be graduating in a few weeks' time. My parents are flying in for the ceremony (and my brother is coming from San Diego) and the four of us are hoping to celebrate with a great meal in a good restaurant. It's an important evening not only because of the occassion but because I want the meal to be one of the highlights of their trip to LA.
There are certain factors to take into account...
1 - preferably seafood but the food has to be as good as it can get for the price - we're all food lovers and taste is definitely the most important criteria
2 - nothing too crazily expensive - $50-70 per person (exc. drinks)
3 - nowhere too stuffy or formal
4 - an ambience that will make the meal memorable (I'm leaning towards an ocean view but am flexible)
I currently have reservations for Moonshadows but am not sure if I should be looking further.
Can anyone help? Thanks.
