I am a former LA local who lives in the boondocks now. We eat great in both valley's: San Fernando and San Gabriel for everything from Jewish Deli to phenomenal Chinese. Downtown LA is no problem. Ditto Hollywood. Even Beverly Hills. But I can't recall ever having a true chowhound experience anywhere in Westwood or West Los Angeles. We have limited time and need to be at the Geffen Theatre by 7.45pm, so it has to be close. Any thoughts?
