restaurants between L.A. and Palm Desert

Looking for suggestions for dinner somewhere along Highway 10. We'd like to meet friends who live in Palm Desert somewhere more or less half way.

Big Island in Feb.

Yes, Rapanui is the place run by a Kiwi. It's a small and simple place in Banyon Court in Kailua town with good curries and lamb. Kenichi in Keahou is our favorite for sushi and they have some other very good cooked dishes. If you're staying up in the resort area, Merriman's in Waimea or Roy's in the King's Shop. If you're looking for a special, romantic evening, Pah i'u at the Four Seasons is the place people always suggest first, then the Canoe House at the Mauna Lani.

Dinner party help!

This satisfies both, salad and vegetable, it's easy and yet impressive. Grill or roast asparagus, (can be done in advance, room temp is fine) toss with just a little balsamic vinaigrette, top (say 4 per person) with a poached egg and shaved parmesan.

Jade West Chicken Salad

Does anyone have the recipe for Jade West's (the restaurant that was once in the Century City Entertainment Center) chicken salad? I've lost mine and have been improvising but I think I'm missing something. It is heavy on hoisin sauce.

We're meeting friends for dinner before a hockey game and only want to park once. What moderately priced restaurant is best within walking distance of Staples Center?
