TOP 4 dinner recs under $60/pp???

Hey guys,

We are vistors from the east coast and will be in LA the first week of November. We are looking for some solid recs from the locals.

We are staying in WeHo and are looking for dinner res for Sat and Sun and the following Thu and Fri.

We enjoy almost all ethnic foods, fusion, and american styles. I'd like to keep the dinner bill around $120.00 or less (we do not drink, so alcohol need not be a factor). Atmosphere is important but still falls in behind the meal.

My initial plan is Beverly Hills/Hollywood area for Sat and Sun and Santa Monica/Malibu for Thu and Fri but can adjust if necessary.

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. $60/pp and no alchy should yield some pretty good options - here are my top 4:

    K-Zo (japanese fusion sushi in Culver City, you can get a tasting menu of sorts for $48)
    Grace (contemporary American fare, big on seasonal & local ingredients, save room for desserts)
    Josie in Santa Monica (also great modernized American cuisine with focus on fresh & in-season foods)
    Osteria Mozza (*the* italian place to try in LA right now, try to go really early if you don't have a reservation)


    1. Since you're not drinking, your $60pp will go a long way!

        $60 pp will get you mozza food, but not all you want to try!

          It'll get each of them an appetizer and a main. Probably even dessert.

          Same with the pizzeria, $60pp will get each of them an appetizer, a pizza and a dessert and cover the tax and tip too.

            "$60 pp will get you mozza food, but not all you want to try!"

            Agree, but then that's why you go BACK and eat again. I don't think there's ever been a restaurant where I've been able to sample all that I've wanted to try in one visit, tasting menus included.

        2. You should reserve for Sunday Supper at Lucques!

          1. Lots of good suggestions already, but let me pile on with some different choices:

            Saddle Peak Lodge
            All' Angelo
