    Hello. Not necessary to even THINK about any other place: Papa Cristos 2771 W. Pico blvd (Normandy). They got dinner on Thursday nights only but lunch ROCKS. Greeks do the lamb thing right.And while you're there you can shop in their grocery store - don't forget the greek olive oil, top notch.

      Josie's in Santa Monica. Pricey but some of the best in town. Call ahead to make sure they're serving them; she (the chef) specializes in game, so you can't go wrong with any meat.

        The last time I tasted them at Papadakis Taverna in San Pedro, they were outstanding! Worth the trip from LA.

            Dan Tana's in West Hollywood does an amazing rack of lamb. You get six chops, attached in two sets of three, and when you ask for pink you get pink. The meat must be marinated, because the flavor is amazing. And the scene is as good as anywhere in town.

              Pasta Al Dante at the far south-end of Naples in Long Beach.

                These are excellent standouts on a rather hit and miss menu. And you can't beat the decor/history. Also reccommend the Caeser and the martinis

                  Regarding Mussos, I must say that i consider
                  its menu to be MUCH more hit than miss; I have
                  rarely missed here. The Sandabs are delectable, as
                  are the broiled scallops. The tomato soup is a
                  definite hit, and for breakfast few things are
                  better than Musso's Eggs Benedict with a big plate
                  of their hashed browns. And they still serve a serious
                  cup of coffee, with silver decanter brought to the
                  table. I love this place, and am grateful that it's
                  still open when so many of the other classic Hollywood
                  restaurants, such as the Derby, are long gone.
