Chow Recs in Westwood
I'm on my way to the Geffen Playhouse. Looking for good eats in or around Westwood. Priced reasonable with food great.
Shamshiri Grill for Persian on Westwood Blvd. is great w/ great value, and close by. Also, Pizzicotto in Brentwood is a good choice for Italian. Sprazzo on Westwood Blvd. is also a great option for Italian - a bit more pricey than Pizzicotto, but still a great value.
it doesn't get unanimously rave reviews on this board, but I like Sunnin. It has a bare-bones atmosphere, but the hummus and shawarma are very good. The falafel is not as strong, though.
Another option would be to drive a bit west and go down Sawtelle Blvd. Kiriko has wonderful sushi (and non-sushi) food. Hide Sushi is a very reasonably priced sushi option, but the quality is definitely a notch below Hide Sushi. There are many other options -- just search this board for Sawtelle.
