So, my friend is staying with my husband and I next week while she is interviewing for some jobs. She is a graduate student still, but offered to take us out to a "nice" restaurant to thank us for our hospitality. She is not from LA (she is living in Miami now, originally from NYC), so we are choosing the spot. There are a ton of places I'd like to go to, Mozza, Lucques, to mention a couple that I haven't been to yet, but I am worried about the price. What are some moderately priced ($20-30 pp incl 1 drink) restaurants in the area we could go to? I'm leaning towards Asian or California-fusion types of places, but we're open to any kind of food. So far, I have looked into Yatai - looks good. Keep in mind, I am also trying to persuade her to move to LA, so someplace nice that represents LA would also be great. Thanks everyone!!!
