Quick! Need 1st Date Rest. Rec at 3rd St. Promenade
Going on a first date in a matter of hours, my first date in almost a year. We were going to Monsoon but they're closed tonight for a private party. I need a replacement that is not too expensive (the Lobster, Ocean Avenue and Sushi Roku are out), has good ambience, food is good (not as important since it's a first date), not too crowded or noisy on this Saturday night, and it must be at least in walking distance to the 3rd St. Promenade. Is there a sushi place close enough that fits the bill? If not, any cuisine would work. THANKS!
I'd rec Musha, on Wilshire between 4th and 5th. It's definitely a fun date place and the creative (and sometimes interactive) serving methods of some of the dishes is great conversation fodder.
Earlier today I noticed a sushi place called Mon on Wilshire in that general vicinity but I haven't eaten there so I can't vouch for it's quality.
