Sorry, I was a little vague on my first post. I meant great food near the Getty Museum that inspires. Not Baja Fresh, Fuddruckers, the Cheesecake Factory!?! etc. French fries in a pita isn't really something that gets my appetite going. Thank you all for the replys though.
I'll expand my limitations to restaurants within a 45 minute average-LA-traffic-driving radius of the Getty Museum. I'm looking for your favorite restaurant. Preferably ethnic. Excellent Chinese (any style) OK, please no Japanese, Mexican, Italian, or Thai recommendations.
