Looking for interesting suggestions for Saturday night. Moderately foodie group of 4 with one pregnant woman.

Who's got a big idea?

      I don't think there's that much of a food "adventure."

      Roy's Hawaiian Fusion (8th & Fig). surely fits the bill. They're incredibly accommodating there, as well, and could surely deal with any dietary restrictions required.

        I always enjoy Kokokoko for a downtown adventure...keep the reggers away from the Chicken Sashimi!

        KaGaYa is also fun. http://losangeles.citysearch.com/prof...

            Despite being writerGIRL...I don't get why it matters that one person is pregnant? I know pregnant women can't have sushi and unpasturized cheese, but are there other considerations I should know about? (Asked in all seriousness, not being snotty.)

              The reason I brought it up is that certain foods, like raw fish, are considered verboten for pregnant women. And many pregnant women, like my wife, are hypersensitive to strong smells.

              Palm is pricey, but tasty.

                Splichal's Zucca is just down the street and within walking distance. Their parking lot is actually one of the more resonably price lots near the Staple Center.

                  The Palm steakhouse at 11th & Flower is walkable, just 2 blocks east of Staples Center
