I'm not too thrilled at the recommendation of my date for tomorrow (mediocre Italian place that seems too busy and loud). Any suggestions East of the 405 to downtown LA? It's a first date, so keep that in mind!! hehe
The foolproof 1st date rec. : Lou on Vine. I like Brunello Trattoria in Culver City not so much because of the decor (totally bland) but the food is good and you can hear yourself have a decent conversation.
