Casual Dinner San Fernando Valley
I am arranging a dinner for 8 in the vicinity of Woodland Hills. Although some of the party are locals they seem only to suggest chain "eateries"...yuck!! Any suggestions for a great fun dinner. Any cuisine but japanese/korean and we have one fish eating vegetarian among us.
Monty's Steak House. Not inexpensive but for the valley worth the trip. Deep fried pickles anyone?
If you have the budget, try Brandywine. Fabulous old-fashioned French.

Don't be fooled by the multiple locations of these spots:
If your vegetarian friend can deal with a limited seafood/fish menu, (salmon salad only?), Versailles Cuban is the place that I crave now that I've moved away. We hit this place everytime we visit LA.
Jerry's Famous Deli is a proper Jewish deli. Yum. Could really use a matzo ball soup and a reuben right now. Never been disappointed with anything here.
And again, if you consider "roy's" a chain. It's not the best meal I've had but it's fun, casual, and located in the SFV. If you haven't figured it out yet, SFV is not exactly the food mecca of SoCal.
That's right, run to Brent's. The portions are large and the food, who knew? there is a Brent's in Northridge and another in Westlake Village. The store in Westlake also has a bar. I think it's anything from malteds to martinis.
