I'm going to be going to UCLA for a sporting event. I'm not too familiar with the area but would like some good chow near UCLA.
I like Japanese, French, American, seafoodm, etc.. No Thai, Pho, Indian or Chinese. Since we are going to a sporting event, the restaurant should be pretty casual. Looking for something yummy and not too expensive ($10 to $20 for entrees, although I could go up to $25-$30). Happy hour specials work, and Spanish tapas sound good also.
What would you recommend? I prefer a non-chain place, but if there is nothing else, I guess I could do chains.
UPDATE: On that note, I'm willing to go anyway on the drive from Woodland Hills out to UCLA, so if you know of any good spots that fits into the above description, please make a rec.
