Recs for central/dwntwn/freeway-friendly LA joint for drinks/light fare -- small group on Saturday afternoon?

dbdancer | Dec 5, 201108:06 PM

Am hosting a small gathering of 4-7 people on Saturday. It's a casual reunion of sorts, and some are driving far (from Ventura County,from Inland Empire), so am trying to keep it freeway-/parking-friendly, not too hard to find. Some may eat/some may not. Drinks are *definitely* on the agenda. Believe it or not, I'm having a hard time finding a place that's neither a total dive bar nor a super-noisy/trendy hipster/$$$$ place but that has decent seating, edible fare, and a full bar... AND that serves all that up between 3 and 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

Ethnic cuisine would be fine, as would gastropub-ish stuff... as long as the price is ok,
