Hamasaku is a sophisticated harmony of Japanese cuisine and Californian exuberance. Sincere and succinct, Hamasaku's literal translation is one who creates food from the sea. Celebrated for its whimsical reverence for sushi and understated elegance, warmth in hospitality and modern sensibilities underscore a quintessential dining experience.

"some things, especially the fried french toast was delicious; others, like the german pancake was terrible, tasteless as was the tuna tartare. Iwould like to try the dinner but my friends won't. Also, the doors in the front were open and the noise from cars and buses was awful."

Palomino offers upbeat city dining featuring New World cuisine inspired by Old World cooking techniques. Located on the corner of Glendon & Lindbrook. <br /><br />A comfortable place where striking surroundings magnify the metropolitan experience! Palomino is the perfect stop for a night out on the town or for quick drop in dining. <br />

In business since 1984, La Bruschetta has won a loyal neighborhood following and has long been one of the more serious -- and relaxed -- places to dine close to Westwood Village. The simple yet handsome dining room works well for many occasions: it can be romantic, it suits the needs of business people and it is also an ideal restaurant to bring visiting relatives. The kitchen prepares a wide range of intriguing pasta dishes -- some hearty, some delicate, most of them noteworthy. Deftly prepared classic northern Italian entrées, most reasonably priced, range from veal scaloppine to osso buco.
