Italian or Chinese near Pico and LaBrea?
We dine again tonight with our vegetarian (not vegan) friends, who are bringing Miss Finicky Fourteen along. Italian usually works (think pizza) and Chinese can. We'd like to dine within 5 minutes' drive from this intersection. I'm coming up blank. The popular Culver Junction restaurants are a bit too far and a bit too busy. Can anyone help?
A little over a mile north on La Brea, you have a couple of decent options for vegetarians/finicky eaters, although none are Chinese. For Italian, you could go to Ca Brea, which has pretty decent food (no pizza, though). Or, a better option might be Luna Park, which is not Italian per se (more of a varied "home style" menu) with decent options for everyone in your party, including pizzas.
