I need to take an out-of-towner to lunch and dinner on Monday. Looking for places that have a special or fun vibe that would be appealing to an out-of-towner, but not too expensive. For lunch, we will be in the vicinity of either Beverly Hills or Santa Monica/Venice. For dinner, we will be in the vicinity of Manhattan Beach or Marina del Rey. Oh, and my friend does not eat red meat, but does eat chicken/fish. However, I'm not sure if she likes sushi, so I would like to avoid sushi places. Any thoughts?
