i'm moving back to la after an 8 year hiatus, and i've been lurking on this group for the last few weeks to 'reorient' myself to the restaurant scene. thank you everyone for your contributions.
i'll be moving to westwood (near ucla) and i'm hoping the group can save me a little leg-work. i'd appreciate your thoughts on a nice, clean, full-service grocery store in the westwood/sm/bh/brentwood area. i'm looking for recs other than the whole foods in westwood (as i occassionaly need to give my wallet a rest).
i'm aware of the pavillions on wilshire (just west of the 405) as well as the ralphs a little further down (or is that on san vicente?). anyway, i haven't been in either, and i would love to hear anyone's opinions of these or other groceries in the area.
thanks in advance for your help.
