Japanese visitor - where to take them?

pongstress | Aug 15, 2006 06:43 AM

My sister is coming from Japan with her 8 year old son. Need a weekend chow suggestion...

I want to give them a quintessential L.A./American experience. But it has to be good food, and no hassle environment (= no Pinks, no Apple Pan, no Zankou). Also, she is a foodie, but doesn't need big portions.

Last time I took them to The Border Grill. I thought South-of-the-Border and decor might be interesting, but food was somewhat disappointing.

So far I thought of:

Primotivo (small plates - good)
The Counter (interesting burger concept)
Korean BBQ
Gardens Brunch (outside/LA scene)
Saddlepeak Lodge Brunch (outside - but will it be too hot in Calabasas?)

Any other suggestions? Westside preferred, but will travel if necessary..

thank you!!!
