Griffith Park, Laguna Beach and Disneyland area ideas? Help!

seagrace | May 7, 2010 03:15 PM


The hub and I will be arriving this Sunday evening 5/9 staying through 5/12 to visit Disneyland, Laguna Beach and Griffith Park areas. I've perused this board for a couple days for restaurant ideas, but I'm overwhelmed with ideas, geography and our acute differences in eating styles! (Makes dining out very difficult at times.)

Any referrals to *already established lists* or recommendations are very very much appreciated. Help!

I'm a wine loving vegetarian-leaning food lover. He's likes old standards such as spaghetti and meat sauce, BBQ or thai food. OK he does like beets and spinach. And sushi. But that's about it. (-: He is NOT cheap which has saved me in the past and doesn't even mind spending money on "snooty" food if he really enjoys it, which happens on occasion. I did use this board successfully two years ago when I was on my own, and loved AOC, Canele and Real Food Daily.

I'd love some ideas for good mid-range restaurants, even California small chains, that would make the non foodie and upscale eater (me) happy, but without an menu full of truffle oil or confit. Actually he loves duck.

We'll by staying right by Disneyland for a couple nights, visiting Laguna Beach for a day and going out to Griffith Park to see the observatory.

Thank you thank you.
