Earlyish dinner with friend Saturday. She lives in Olympic/La Cienega area, I live in Santa Monica--thought of these because they're all in between and all have been reviewed quite a lot this year on this board. Haven't been to any of these. Orris and Nook have gotten lots of good reports on this board a month or so ago, Beacon a while back. Which would be pricier? Which is better? Quieter for conversation? Need reservations if we go 6ish?
