Help! Restaurant Gift Card Suggestion Needed

Misslis Jan 30, 2013 01:30 PM

Hi All,

I'm looking to buy my friend a gift card to a restaurant for her birthday. I live overseas so I need some local LA help.

She lives in Burbank, but travelling around LA never seems much of an issue for her, however and this is where it gets hard - she is coeliac and can't have soy either. She doesn't really eat red meat, but will eat seafood and I think chicken/turkey.

She's not really a foodie type person but I just thought it would be lovely to get her a voucher so her and her boy can have a nice dinner out without worrying about cost. Having said that they're not really into fine dining. I'm thinking somewhere like Susan Fenigers Street - but I took her there last time I was in town.

The other thing I was wondering is whether there are any restaurants outside of LA which might make for a good day trip, they could have lunch out there and then come back (or stay if they so choose)

Has anyone got any suggestions?

      Hi Servong,

      Thanks, I did find that article in my research but I wasn't sure whether any of the suggestions met my other requirements. Do you have personal experience with any of the places suggested? I really liked the sound of the Misfit, but by looking at their menu I wasn't sure if it would suit.

        I haven't been to Misfit, but have been to Hostaria del Piccolo in Santa Monica and they would be a solid choice. Also Catch is quite good for dining by the Ocean. Water Grill is probably your best bet.

      Water Grill in Downtown Los Angeles serves some of the best & freshest seafood in the city and has a great raw bar too. You can buy a gift card from their web site at this link:
