Hi, I'm looking for a fun trendy place to take a friend out to dinner that also serves great food. Lively atmosphere required. I'd prefer not to make a reservation. I'd go anywhere from Santa Monica/Venice to La Cienega. Any ideas?
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
