I have a foodie friend coming into town for 4/5 days and want to take him to some proper chow places in LA - some classics, and some newer places. For lunch I'de like to keep the price under $10/15 and dinner we'de like to spend on average $30 but will definately consider more on a few occasions. All types of cuisine would be great - steak, italian,sushi,burgers (he's from europe - they're not so good there!), mexican. also, he'll be staying in culver city/century city area. For evening places, if there's a patio that'de be great (he's a smoker)...thanks so much for your help.
