Last minute recommendation needed for tonight. I have a friend staying near LAX for one night and she wants to drink an ample amount of cocktails (think mojitos or something fruity with vodka) and have dinner together. I was thinking about going somewhere we could share some small plates, maybe even sit on a patio. I would hate to waste someone buying me dinner and a drive to LAX on sub-par food. Looks like we'll be taking a taxi, so all of my ideas really fall outside of the area. My first thought was Opus. Someone has already suggested beechwood or Monsoon, but after looking at a few posts on here I'm not to sure. Any suggestions???

Thanks chowhounders!
