New to the Brentwood Area
I just moved to the Brentwood area (Barrington and Wilshire) and wanted to know of some good restraunts (any type of food is great, im adventurous) in the area. Anything that is quality and doesnt cost you half a months pay check would be appreciated as well.
The Fish Grill has a location on Wilshire, between Barrington & Bundy (about a block east of Bundy?):
A short car hop to San Vicente Blvd.'s many Italian spots where the best food quality for the $$$'s probably is:
Pizzicotto (small, so call ahead).
11758 San Vicente Blvd., Brentwood
In the general area there's:
Amandine (pastries and sandwiches, etc) on Wilshire, west of Bundy. Even further west on Wilshire in Santa Monica is Musha (Izakaya).
Orris (Japanese fusion) and Kiriko (sushi) on Sawtelle
Nanbankan (yakitori) and Monte Alban (Oaxacan (sp?) on Santa Monica Blvd.
Apple Pan (burgers) on Pico
I'm going to get booed for saying this, but the nachos at Cabo Cantina are great if you can manage to stomach the atmosphere...which I always can for good nachos!
In addition to the places people have mentioned, you're also very close to Monte Alban in West LA for Oaxacan and Echigo for their cheap sushi lunch special.
And if you're talking about sushi lunch specials, I would also recommend finding your way to Sawtelle for Kiriko's lunch omakase.
But for me, when I want cheap eats in that area, I think of Ramenya on Olympic.
11301 W Olympic Blvd Ste 102, Los Angeles, CA 90064
11555 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064
welcome to the 'hood!
some places that haven't been mentioned yet:
coral tree cafe
a votre sante
bandera [right at your intersection]
barney's gourmet hamburgers
salad bar at our local whole foods market is excellent [as is the s.m. one at wilshire & 23rd]
i've also heard that the new grill service at the s.m. whole foods does a good made-to-order burger
I really liked the food I had at Coral Tree, and it's a nice environment.
A Votre Sante is a good concept, but be warned that the menu is heavily geared towards crunchy macrobiotic types, and the only cheeses they offer are feta and soy. In other words, it's the kind of food that people from the midwest believe is served at every restaurant in L.A.
