An evening out in West LA

My first post bringing you recommendations on my favorite places to chow down. Whether its a meal, a snack, or dessert that I am looking for, these restaurants keep me coming back.

For a fancy dinner with family, friends or a date:
--Pane e Vino - Located in Beverly Hills, Pane e Vino has delicious appetizers and pasta. Ask to sit on the patio as long as the weather is nice; its got a great atmosphere. Or for a more romantic setting sit indoors.

--Ago - The ambiance at the Italian restaurant in West Hollywood is great - lively, yet intimate. And the food is equally amazing, my favorite is the Tagliatelle ai Carciofi.

--Katsuya - I've only been to the Brentwood location, but what I really like about Katsuya is the variety from the different menu options - sushi, robata (the only restaurant I've ever found this at) and hot kitchen - to the the different decor in the dining rooms.

and there's more to come on West LA ... so check back soon!
