    Hollywood Restaurants?

    Hey all. I'm meeting my parent's in the Hollywood area for dinner tomorrow night and I need some restaurant recommendations. I'd like to keep it somewhat moderately priced, like <$20 an entree. No real constraints on the cuisine.

    Thanks for the help!

    This is one of my very favorites: http://www.yelp.com/biz/luna-park-lo...g4A/query:luna

    It's more West LAish but very near Hollywood. Another option would be: http://thedeliciouslife.blogspot.com...eno-mac-n.html

    I've tasted the mac & cheese with jalapenos...to die for.

    How about Cha Cha Cha? I like the Silveralke location but the parking is pretty much valet only from what I remember.

    Are you looking for food or atmosphere?

    The Alcove on Hillhurst near Franklin (Silverlake/Los Feliz vic) has both....with a large heated patio out front.

    OH YEAH!!! Their Ruebens are awesome. And the pastries there are to die for as well. They have the most amazing chocolate chip cheesecake.

    Their food is so-so (unless you've been drinking and it's 3am in the morning and Axel Rose is sitting in the booth across from you with five hot chicks with plastic boobage hanging off him). Otherwise, for dinner, IMO, I'd skip it.

    unless you're eating with vegetarians...

    Which I'm not, so I love it. They also have poppy seed pastries that are hard to find anywhere else.

    I am a Rueben Expert! Canters corned beef is wonderful! Of course, my preference actually is Arts on Ventura, but Canters is still one of the best.

    Mmmm, curse this diet!

    Your avatar now makes you look like The Fly. Just thought you'd want to know.

    Regardless of whether Canter makes good Ruebens or not, this guy wants to take his parents out to dinner. Canters is NOT the place to take them, unless for novelty. Well, that or unless his parents just happen to LOVE deli food.

    I am with you John, Reubens are great. And Art's (where every sandwich is a work of Art) makes a mighty fine one.

    Near UCLA are you? How about right there in Westwood? Palomino's. Then on Montana Avenue past Brentwood near Whole Foods, there's some smaller trendy restaurants. For average Cantonese, try Hop Li on Pico near Veteran. For Japanese, there's Sawtell Blvd, past Santa Monica Blvd. I like going to Farmer's Market up Fairfax near the CBS television studios. Its outside eating which may be a bit of an issue. But the food is good and great value for a UCLA student budget. If don't mind eating with your hands (no utinsels), there's Ethiopian restaurants in Little Ethiopia on Fairfax.

    +1,000,000 Great place and the outside eating is great. Also, there is a little French restaurant there that has a dynamite cheese plate and wine. The entrees are reasonably priced and you can walk over to the crepe place for dessert after. If you are into the Grove/shopping thing (Iím not, but many people love that place), you could go there as well.

    +1. I used to live a block from the FM, and I almost never ate there. Very overrated, imo, and (now) misnamed.

    Yup. There are some wonderful restaurants there...variety of many different cuisines...and you can walk to a movie or to the Grove before or after. Canters is nowhere that is interesting (in terms of walking), has florescent lighting and the food is deli food. Iím not knocking it for novelty or fun, but Iíd suggest this UCLA student (Iím assuming) go to Canters on a night out with his buddies where he ends up there at 3am. Thatís when the Ruebens taste the best and the crowd is the most interesting. Going there with his parents is okay but itís not the best Ė unless, again, they LOVE deli food.

    Did you ever try Mr. Marcel Pain Vin Et Fromage or Ulysses Voyage? There are so many restaurants there. Unless you've tried all of them, how can you state it overrated?

    I can't have an opinion unless I've been to every place?!?

    I'll retract it for you then... and say for the 2 years I lived there, I was disappointed every time I ate there -- except for Marcel. But Marcel isn't cheap, and at their price range, I had other preferences. Most days, I would end up at places nearby (Mani's, Doughboys, Toast, Buddha's Belly).
