hi fellow chowhounders! here's a challenge that I hope you all can help with!:
next week, one of our company executive managers from Osaka will be coming to visit.
I know that it's a rather open-ended question, but I'd like to know of any recommendations in Torrance/Gardena for us to take him to lunch/dinner. (The closer to the 405/105 interchange, the better.)
I'm sure that there are a lot of fancy and posh places to take him, but I'd also like to know of some reasonably priced, casual, down-to-earth places to take him, as well. Any recs for either?
Also, since he's a Japanese native, are there any Japanese restaurants in the area that I should make sure are at the top of my list, or places to make sure to stay away from? After all, I'm trying my best not to lose my job due to him getting food poisoning...
(P.S. He'll be here allll week, so our department is scrambling to think of over 10 different places for lunch/dinner to take him.)
