i'll be in long beach mid-march for a trade show. i'm staying at the hyatt regency (200 s pine av). i will not have a car, but don't mind walking up to a mile (sorry, but i don't know anything about the lb area; is it safe to walk [especially after dark]? is there good public transportation/cab availability?) . i need some suggestions for a couple of business-casual places on an expense account, as well as some more downscale eateries/bars where i can unwind after a long day at the show. any and all cuisines are welcome.
i've perused the board, and found a few places that look interesting, but most of the activity on the threads i found is a year or so old, so i wanted to solicit some updated info. 555 & the greenfield look like possibilities for the business dinners. enrique's, king's fish house, george's greek & roscoe's have appeal for the nights i'll be on my own. any opinions/updates on these? any others you recommend?
breakfast & lunch will more than likely be at the hotel due to time constraints, but if there's anything good for breakfast very easily accessible to the hotel (like within a block or 2), i'd be interested in it.
thanks in advance,
