Happy unbirthday Sunday lunch/brunch-Blair's?

Babette May 19, 2007 02:36 PM

Our son's happy unbirthday celebration. We want to try something new, are considering Blair's. Some places he likes, as do we: Lucky Devil, Nook, Spago, Angeli Caffe among may others. He likes: seafood, burgers, pizza, caesar salad, sushi, fish & chips, Mexican--actually most everything. I was thinking of Village Idiot but see very mixed reviews. Other thoughts--26 Beach, someplace on Abbot Kinney, Jar? We're ready for a new experience, can you help us decide?

    If he went to Lucky Devil's fror the beer, I would say take him to Naja's Place in Redondo beach. Amazing beer celebration. For al I know, though, he isn't 21. If he was, also consider Mc G's in Chatsworth and 3rd Stop in West LA on 3rd.

    frankly, if you can get in, get thy son to Mozza. I hate the prices, but the food is very, very good.

    Gorikee in Woodland Hills may work.

    Joe's on Abbot Kinney may work, but it might be closed for the Art walk this weekend.

      He's 15. Mozza's is very good, we've been there & all liked it, but will consider it again if our other ideas are inferior. Last time we got in with no problem mid-afternoon. Thanks for the suggestion.

        You ever thought of taking him to Moun of Tunis for a Tunisian feast complete with lounging on cushions and belly dancers?

      I like 26 Beach a lot. Maybe 25 degrees. You could do Violet. BLD or Milk (though Milk is less "real food" oriented, though perhaps good for an unbirthday). Campanile does a nice brunch; IIRC, I had great ricotta pancakes there last time. For Mexican, La Serenata di Garibaldi.

        Don't do Blair's for breakfast/lunch or you will have to deal with horrible service - not a great way to celebrate.
