Hello all, I hope you can help:

We will be a small international group of about 15, in LA as part of a large conference and we'd like to have dinner together one evening. Some of us will be on a reasonably tight budget (we have Europeans among us who "feel the bite" at the moment). I did the trawl of the restaurants shown on Tripadvisor, but LA is SOO big I kept coming up against places miles away. We do like our food, but we have two vegetarians in the group, so there needs to be at least one or two vegetarian options on the menu.

The conference is at the Marriott, and I had already had a look at LA Live, but I was hoping for something less food mall-ish. Also, as the conference we are attending is just next door to LA Live, I think we will be fed there at one point.

- A short taxi ride would not be out of the question.
- Our budget for this dinner is about $30 per person.
- Hot food, ie, very spicy, is not an option.
- All of us like wine or beer but not cocktails, but we are not heavy drinkers ;)

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
