Well, the inevitable has happened. We're leaving 405-landia for the broad sidewalks and noodle shops of the SGV. So, as for that final dinner, there seems to be a glut of places starting with "Il", though I think I've managed to go to all of about 1 (in an office building on Olympic as I recall). So, how to decide? Will some local who eats a lot better than we do (Westsidegal?) suggest one that:
- isn't a 'scene' (no waiting endlessly at the bar, straining to hear)
- big enough so it isn't cramped (widely-spaced tables a plus)
- has consistently great homemade dishes, esp. pastas, at not-crazy prices
Not looking for cheap, but something to mark the occasion. Thoughts?
