330 "Casual Weeknight Dinner" restaurants in Los Angeles.
A good casual weeknight dinner spot is hard to find. It’s a step above a make-your-own bowl place, but not somewhere you’ll need a reservation. It shouldn’t be too expensive, you should be able to talk instead of shout, and your dinner shouldn’t take more than an hour. These spots do it all.
Mh Zh is a Mediterranean spot in Sunset Junction and home to some of the prettiest (and most delicious) food you’ll find on the Eastside.
