I am visiting LA for Columbus Day weekend for my husbands birthday and I would love some restaurant recs. Not too expensive, not too fussy and we like mexican, italian, asian. We have 2 small kids, don't get out much, so a fun and festive ambiance wouldn't hurt. We have 3 nights out so a rec doesn't necessarily need to be super fun happy time to make the list. We are staying in West Hollywood so if it is nearby that would be good, as I am trying to keep driving to a minimum. I know there are tons of great restaurants in LA, but I am no sure I want to be driving far distances after a meal and wine (or sake or beer....).
We are from he East Coast and want to get the local opinion. I am the foodie and he not so much so any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
