I am looking for a place for dinner in Sherman Oaks, Encino, Tarzana etc. We are meeting some friends "halfway" between Agoura Hills and Pasadena. The Board has helped me with the Sushi places but I'd appreciate some recommendations for other types of cuisine. (I didn't find much in my research). Type is not as important as quality. Also, we need some place that's not too noisy to converse. Thanks fellow 'hounds.
