I'm going to the Brentwood Theater this week, which is relatively near Wilshire and the 405. As a staunch Silverlake/Echo Park person, all the restaurants I've been to over there seem very upscale and, for me, not all that good as far as the food is concerned. I'm sure there are good restaurants; I just don't know them.
I'm looking for someplace for dinner, not too expensive, preferably on the westside of the 405 nearish to Wilshire. I'd like it to be delicious and reasonable and really a find. Any cuisine is fine. Burgers, Italian, Chinese, it really doesn't matter.
Why does the Westside scare me????
