My 27th birthday is in a couple of weeks. A few friends and I were thinking of going to a nice-but-not-staid Italian restaurant (not too expensive) and then a nearby wine bar. Any suggestions? Preferably somewhere with a lot of energy. No chains please. We're open to West LA, Pasadena, Melrose, La Cienega, West Hollywood, etc. Pretty much anywhere except Orange County and the Valley.
