New restaurants in West LA?

Haven't been to West LA in a good while. Can someone clue me in--what restaurants have opened there in the last six months or so?

Simi Valley tomorrow

I think O2, in the Borders shopping center at Alamo and Tapo Canyon, is quite good. I'm not sure what their hours are so call ahead.

Some of the other nicer places in the area are Red Fish and Spark Woodfire Grill (at Simi Valley Town Center, the mall) and Amuse Bouche. I haven't been to any of these but wanted to throw out some other suggestions.

If you don't need to impress anyone, there's also a pretty good hole in the wall Greek place called Greek House Cafe. I really like their hummus, pita, tzatziki, feta, and gyro.

For passable Indian, there's Indian Haweli:

Or you could consider driving over to Moorpark for Cafe Firenze, which is the restaurant of one of last season's Top Chef contestants:

Dining in Simi isn't as bad as it's reputed to be. You just have to know where to look. And now you do. Let me know how it goes!
