Looking for Moderately Priced ($30 and under) dinner options for this Friday

I'm looking for restaurant suggestions for 6 diners on Friday night. Four of the six diners are not adventurous eaters and one of them is a gluten free diner. They enjoy the basics: steak, chicken and fish (salmon and halibut). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. What are your geographic preferences (if any)?

    1. It is dineLA Restaurant Week. You could try checking the website to review the menu of some of the best places to eat in the city. Pre-fixe 3 course dinners could run as high as $44 and as low as $28.

        having tried, i can tell you it is extremely difficult to find gluten-free dinners in dinela prix fix menus that are under $30.
        add to that the fact that most of erinepowell9's party <<are not adventurous eaters>> and the dinela route becomes close to impossible.. . .

      2. Truxton's near LAX might be workable.

        1. another idea:
          c & o cucina on washinton near lincoln (not the trattoria).
          3016 Washington Boulevard Marina del Rey, CA 90292-5549

          in addition to offering several plain protein/meat/fish dishes, they also offer gluten-free pasta

            C & O is very $$ friendly.

            C & O Trattoria
            31 Washington Blvd, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292

          2. There are a few things on A-Frame's menu that a "non-adventurous eater" might be ok with: Beer Can Chicken comes immediately to mind, and you'll definitely be WAY under your $30 price... if they can take waiting for a table, since they don't take reservations.

              here is the link to A-Frame's menu


              it is one of the LAST places i'd be considering for a party of people who are not adventurous eaters.
              look at the menu, make your own decision. . . . .
