Non-Chain restaurants in Woodland Hills
Hi: I am spending a week in Woodland Hills and am desperate to find some good local places to eat, and I don't mean PF Changs. Some restaurants with good food, a decent wine list, doesn't have to be fancy but a place that a foodie will be happy. Ethnic food is good too, but I am looking to stay pretty local for at least a few nights. Thanks
Gorikee is long gone. You might think about La Frite -- which has stores in Woodland Hills and in Sherman Oaks, but I don't think would qualify as a "chain" in the sense you are using the word. Nice menu (I always love their half chicken and frites), decent wine list, great (and large) martinis. http://www.lafritecafe.com/
18663 Ventura Blvd
-features live seafood-lobster, scallops, shrimp, sea urchin, and more-very expensive.
19723 Ventura Blvd.
Woodland Hills, CA 91364
-good sushi more reasonably priced.
6443 Topanga Canyon- half block north of Victory
Brandywine on Ventura west of Topanga is French/continental-ish. Excellent but can get very expensive very quickly. Sushi Spot on Ventura for traditional sushi. Cavaretti's Italian market on Sherman Way west of Topanga for subs. The trouble is that most of the places with truly Houndly food don't have wine lists.
