Christmas Eve/Day suggestions?
My partner and I will be in LA for Christmas and we're looking for dining recommendations for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
We are staying in a hotel in Santa Monica and have a car.
My ideal for Christmas Eve is someplace on the west side with a good buzz - people either out with their families or avoiding families ;-)
For Christmas Day, we're probably up for an asian restaurant (chinese or other) and a movie.
We're not interested in Saddle Peak or hotel restaurants/buffets.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations you can provide.
