Dinner Near Cedars Sinai

I am coming to LA with my mom and will be staying near Cedars Sinai. I need some recommendations for dinner. We're looking for something moderately priced and casual. We eat almost anything.

  1. Here's a link to a recent thread all about places in that neighborhood:

    1. FAT FISH for sushi (robertson and melrose)
      MONSIEUR MARCEL casual french bistro/wine bar (farmer's market)
      IL PASTAIO italian (canon in Bev HIlls)
      DOUGHBOYS for soups, salads, wraps, etc (3rd st near crescent heights)
      LA CONVERSATION (doheny/SM blvd)
      BREAD BAR (3rd st betw/la cienaga and robertson)
      XIAN (best chinese on west side) canon in beverly hills
      DOUG ARANGOs melrose and robertson
      BLD upscale burgers, etc (beverly east of fairfax)

        I second all these recs, especially BLD which I think would be perfect.

          CAUTION: As of Jun 3, 2007, Doughboys is closed for renovations. I went all excited cause it my first time then saw the sign....went to roscoes instead.

        2. Really good coffe shop, Jans. More upscale Pane E Vino, but casual eat on the patio. I agree with Farmers market, you can eat in the market or eat at one of the restaurants. Across at Beverly Center is California Pizza Kitchen, and Grand Luxe, a part of the Cheesecake factory.

          1. On Third Street east of La Cienega are Mishima and Zen Grill.

            Mishima is casual Japanese with a nice selection of dinner/lunch foods (skip the sushi - although the albacore salad is very good). They're open all afternoon through dinner, so the hours are flexible.

            1. Dominicks on Sunday nights has a 3 course $15 menu, wine is $10/bottle. It's fun, and surprisingly really good. You can check the menu at their website, different every Sunday.

                Another vote for Dominick's. Very reasonably priced and the sunday supper is excellent. Ask to sit outside in the patio near the fire. I'm not so sure about the quality of the $10 wine, but the $2 bottles of Moretti beer are pretty dang good.
