Without going into the ugly details... I owe my brother BIG. He's a chowhound himself, so my way of making it up to him is to take him out for a great dinner after work (He works near LACMA). He's a simple dude and loves hardy comfort foods, my first idea was to take him to Jar, but that's too stuffy for him and I dunno what kinda beer selection they had (He LOVES great beer... I've trained him well... :))
So what I'm looking for basically is Father's Office, but not to far from his work (He has a long commute home to the SGV...) I'm stumped... Any ideas hounds?
