      Jar is a little expensive. I would go to BLD, though they don't take reservations.

      1. re: holleygolitely

        When did BLD stop taking reservations? I've made reservations there a few times.

        1. re: hrhboo

          I think BLD take reservations for parties over 6. At least that's what I was told the last time I was there.

    2. Hahaha zoememel - I was just thinking the same thing! Maybe we'll see each other at MILK tonight :P
      The good places I know are all expensive so I'm having a hard time also (Angelini Osteria, Grace, Jar)

      I would suggest you consider Ita-cho though. The food is inexpensive and good (although not mind blowing)
      I went there pre-MILK last time (



      1. BLD is good. There's also Buddha's Belly and Torroni right down the street. Cobras and Matadors is also right around there. All of those are around $25-35 per person without alcohol.

        1. is Pane e Vino super expensive? i think it's moderate and love the paio.

          if you don't mind going off of beverly, hugo's on santa monica to go healthier before the gourge?

          1. I agree with Jar, although it might be more expensive than you're looking for.

            I adamantly disagree with BLD. Not that I don't like the place (I really enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, or lunch), but I have not had good experience there for dinner.

            Other options:
            - Cobras & Matadors
            - Ita-cho
            - Angelini Osteria (also may be more than you want to spend)

              Now that Ita-cho has new owners ... has the menu changed and how does the quality of food & service compare to the original?

                Wish I could say, but I didn't discover this place until recently. We very much enjoyed it. Dessert at MILK was entirely unnecessary, but delicious as well.
