Can you help me narrow down my choices?

This will be my second trip to LA. Last year you all were very helpful when I planned my dining -- I made reservations last year at: Lazy Ox Canteen, Animal, Bazaar and Rivera. I stayed at the Marriott by LA Live and did not have a car. I ended up cancelling my reservations at Lazy Ox and Animal because of transportation cost issues -- the cab for the trip to and from Bazaar was $60. I ended up adding in Chaya Downtown and Drago (downtown location.)

This year I will be in the same area but Friday and Saturday night I will be with a coworker who will have a car! Yippee! The problem is that I have too many choices and not enough time. My other issue is money -- I am on a company per diem of $60 - 70 a day.

Here are my choices:
Lazy Ox
Osteria Mozza
Susan Feniger street

Also, I will have a little exploring time during 1 or maybe 2 afternoons -- with no car. Last time I went to CBS Seafood for a little dim sum, Philippe’s for a sandwich, walked through Olvera Street. I also went to see the Chinese Theater/Kodak Theater. What should I check out this time around? Is the Original Farmer's Market worth a visit?
