First time in LA- List in post: Which restaurants would you recommend?

MrsDRock | Oct 22, 201108:44 AM

My husband and I will be in LA in a week. We will have a rental car. We will arrive next Sunday around midnight and leave again the following Sunday early morning. We're staying in Culver City. Husband wants to join me for lunch for I'm a little worried about LA traffic to make sure he gets back to work on time (he's @ conferences). We look forward to LA's food scene and ethnic food as well. For what it's worth, we both do not drink but love trying new and unique foods.

We'd like to have 2 "nice dinners" while we're there. The list we're contemplating is:

- Animal

- Providence

- Spago

- Rustic Canyon

If you can help me narrow down this list (and if you've got any entree recommendations), that'd be helpful.

We have a list of casual eateries we're looking forward to try. Not sure when/how, but we're going to try our best!

- Langer's Deli (pastrmi sandwich)

- Pizzeria Mozza

- Daikokuya or Orochon Ramen

- Phillipe, The Original (french dip sandwich?)

- Pink's Hot Dogs

- Porto's (not sure what to order here)

- Umami Burger (truffle, so-cal, or port & stilton) or Father's Office burger

- Bar Bouchon (happy hour)- just looking for appetizers

- First Fridays @ Venice Beach- can't wait for food trucks

- Sprinkles Cupcakes (red velvet) or Joan's on Third cupcakes (chocolate coconut cupcake)

- Diddy Riese cookies

- Bay Cities Deli- Godmother sandwich

- Wood Spoon- chicken pot pie

- Gjelina

- Park's BBQ, Chosun Golbee or Kogi- Korean BBQ ribs

- A Frame- Fried apple pie with Cheddar Ice cream
