Looking for great LA eateries for out of town guests

My parents will be coming to LA next week for a visit. I have only been here for a few months and don't know the ins and outs of LA yet. I live in West LA (Bundy and Santa Monica), so restaurants in the area might be preferable, but we'll try any place that has great food, a cool ambiance, and comes highly recommended. Anything from a taco stand to a reasonably priced ($25) sit down dinner would be great. So far, I've heard that Empress Pavillion has excellent Dim Sum and that Monte Alban has some interesting goat tacos. Any other suggestions?
