Very L.A. -- Special Occasion Restaurant

Caitlin Wheeler | Feb 26, 2004 08:15 PM

My husband and I are spending our anniversary by returning to Los Angeles, where we were married. We usually visit family in Pasadena, but this time we're spending one night in a hotel in Santa Monica. We'd like a very L.A. restaurant with great food to eat dinner. Preferably: California Cuisine (this is not an absolute, but we get great French and Italian in NYC), outdoor seating or some other Californian ambience, Entrees in the $20-$30 range, Santa Monica or no traffic from Santa Monica to wherever it is on a Saturday night (we're Manhattanites - 20 blocks is far for us), good food, good food, good food. Possible to get a reservation on short term (2 week) notice.

I'm tired of New York winters! Help me find a restaurant that will make my husband fall in love with Southern California!
