  1. Locanda del Lago. I only went there once, had heard good reviews, thought it was alright.

        caution: bring hearing protection.

        I've only had bad experiences there, but the stop in cafe?? near there is greek and pretty good. I love their greek salad.

      3. Houstons (bacon cheeseburger and fries...mmmm!), Il Fornaio (great butternut squash ravioli and sinfully delicious tiramisu), Border Grill...the food court in the Mall has a cupcake place (I've only had their chocolate cupcakes which are yummy).

        1. Michael's is my favorite there, but it's a splurge. Others would recommend Jiraffe also. I like Border Grill, but beware that it's very noisy.

          1. Musha is between 4th and 5th on Wilshire, about a five minute walk from the Promenade.

            1. While not as good as the Boyle Heights location, I like La Serenata de Garibaldi on 4th.
