I was just at the Grove in Beverly Hills today!  We went to Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant, which was surprisingly affordable and somewhat decent, both regarding food and service.  Since the portions are huge (and I mean a singe portion could feed a family of four), half portions are allowed and much cheaper, being about $8-15 for half portions.  However, the only major down side was parking.  Despite being validated, I still had to pay $4 for parking while our friends who parked in the lot for the Farmers’ market had to pay $11 for parking since there’s no validation.  Since the Grove is pretty crowded during the holidays, and there were long lines of people at nearly every restaurant at the Grove, the waiters were not as patient with lingering or socializing diners.  Before we even finished our meal, the check was placed at our table and our server was hovering above us waiting for payment.  Hopefully, my dining experience will be an isolated incident that others will not encounter.

Hmmm I’ve been wracking my brain trying to come up with a good place to go.  I guess I haven’t been out in LA for quite some time!

The more I think about it, I think the Grove will be really crazy busy, esp around the holidays, and parking there really is a nightmare.

How about Mexican — Guelaguetza or El Cholo in Koreatown? Casual, inexpensive, and they’re both close off the 10 freeway.  Since we have people coming from the OC, the Westside, and Hollywood, Koreatown seems the most central. Or El Coyote is near the Grove…

Let’s make a decision soon so I can make a reservation.

El Cholo sounds great to me! Yummy.

Did we decide on the 10th or 11th? It seems we are stuck between dinner on the 10th or brunch on the 11th. El Cholo does serve a brunch (according to their website). I’ve only been there for dinner, but the food is always good.

I think more people can do brunch on the 11th, so that may be our best bet.  

What do you all think?  11 am on the 11th at El Cholo?

I can go either day. Let me know what day you decide. Guelaguetza is delicious but El Cholo would work too.
