In and out is a waste of time.

Go to pie and burger.

Glad to help.

It's a bit of a hike, but a great drive up the PCH. I always make it a point have lunch at Geoffrey's in Malibu.

I second Bottega Louie. Get the portobello fries! Just be prepared the place is always packed and LOUD!

If you want something a little different, there's a great little brazilian restaurant on 9th called Wood Spoon. Check it on Yelp. I had the pork burger and my friend had the chicken pot pie. Both were amazing.

Have fun!

Bosa Nova on Sunset, anytime after 2am. Great reasonably priced steaks (pichana is my favorite or NY) and all the chicks from the clubs come to eat here because the foods really good and its open til 4am. Also sometimes you see strippers from the 7th veil across the street come over to eat or get food so great food and entertainment. Good place for parking lot pimping.
