I have a meeting that ends at 5 p.m. on Pico, near the Hillcrest Country Club (Avenue of the Stars), and a 9 p.m. flight from LAX. I'd love to take my daughter and her new husband to dinner, and his favorite is sushi. They can meet me somewhere around 5:30.
I've done a few searches, but am coming up empty handed.
If no sushi recommendations we might try Ayara near the airport, since my daughter and I both love Thai....but since they live downtown, I'd rather stay closer to my meeting location then make them drive out too far towards LAX...
Obviously, time is an issue, so I will want to make reservations or be assured of no wait. I'd prefer something with a bit of atmosphere, but not stratospheric prices....Any ideas appreciated! Thanks!
