Chowhound from Boston will be in LA for two nights....help!
We (spouse and I) will be in LA over Thanksgiving weekend and plan to make reservations for dinner on Sunday and Monday evenings. We are in our early 30s and enjoy a hip atmosphere, but really would prefer to avoid a place where "attitude" is prevalent. We are staying in West Hollywood and will have a car. We are open to all cuisines, with French and Indian being favorites (Mexican would be least favorite). We hope to keep each meal (wine included) under $150 total. Any and all suggestions appreciated!
re: Alan Gardner
Some of us, albeit those of us with kids, actually prefer the family friendliness of Monday nights at Campanile (which are actually called, y'know, Family Dinners) and Thursday grilled-cheese nights--there's nothing else remotely like it in L.A. It's where you'll find most of the regulars.
If you request the more formal back room, you'll usually be spared the ruckus. The kids tend to congregate around the fountain in the front.
