I will be studying abroad all next year, so I have one meal in L.A. before I'm gone for sixteen months! My friends and I are planning to go out to eat on Wednesday night--we want someplace in the Fairfax/West L.A. area, although we go to school in Claremont so really anywhere in L.A. is good. Here are the criteria: reasonably priced (about $25/person without alcohol), must have some vegetarian options (although I think fish and poultry are ok.) We love really good Italian and Mexican, but are always up for something new. If you only had one night left in L.A., and were on a college-kid budget but were willing to splurge a little, where would you go?
Thanks for your insight!
