My wife and I are going to be in downtown LA for a couple of nights next week. We're staying at the Biltmore and will not have a car.
I'm looking for casual places for dinner, but with good food and atmosphere. I'm not looking for fine dining (i.e. no Water Grill). Small plates and a good wine-by-the-glass or beer selection a plus.
I've searched this board without too much luck. A couple of places that I'm considering, though, are Pete's Cafe and Banquette Cafe.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
