Century City dinner

Friends from out of town are staying in Century City and want dinner in the area. The only rules are... they are more interested in great dining, and great food...not a trendy scene, but not something "square" (whatever that means). Any suggestions?
TIA!

    1. what about Rock Sugar in the Mall? great atmosphere and fun food to share...

      1. I like Rock Sugar, Gulfstream and, surprise, Houston's.

        1. i like Houston's as much as the next guy/gal, but you your friends can do better than a mid-range chain. and i know Gulfstream has its supporters - i used to be one of them - but i had two horrendous meals there last year.

          i second the suggestion for Craft. there's also La Cachette.

          there are actually some great dining options in & around CC...

          1. Very creative and delicious Japanese / French fusion at Mako in Beverly Hills just a few minutes from Century City.
