Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles Hollywood [map] Highly Recommended Excellent fried chicken.
Border Grill Santa Monica [map] Highly Recommended Nouvelle Mexican
La Serenata de Garibaldi Santa Monica [map] Recommended Very good fish tacos and flan.
Valentino's Santa Monica [map] Recommended Excellent service. Not too expensive—if we don't count the wine.

Locanda del Lago Santa Monica [map] Highly Recommended Northern Italian (Lombardy) menu.
Cafe Pinot Los Angeles [map] Recommended Excellent chocolate pots de creme
Chinese and Kabob Los Angeles [map] Not Recommended Kosher Persian and Chinese food (not a typo). Not worth it; word on the street is, Colbeh is much better.
Mashti Malone's Exotic Ice Creams and Sorbets Hollywood [map] Somewhat Recommended Not bad, but we've had better.
Westlake Jack's Restaurant Westlake Village [map] Recommended
The Natural Cafe Westlake Village [map] Recommended
