Coming down from SF to LA for a week, need advice...

Hi,

I'll be in LA this week-end and next week with my wife, and we're looking for advice on interesting restaurants.
We'll be staying in Pasadena, but will travel to Hollywood, Silverlake, Downtown, Burbank.
I made a reservation at Animal, after seeing it on Bourdain's, but otherwise nothing. I'm also a fan of ethnic food, and don't really care for super fancy places.

Thank you

SF mid-priced dinner

East Bay couple spending the night in SF this week-end, wanting to have a nice dinner without spending Gary Denko's money. In the East I would go to Dopo, Pizzaiolo, Flora... I was thinking of "Bar Agricole" but the reviews are mixed. Our hotel is by the Moma but we are willing to take a cab. Thank you for your advice.

Dinner this week end on Grand or Piedmond Ave in Oakland

I use to live in Oakland in this neighborhood. Since then, there has been a lot of new restaurant opening and I don't have a clue which one to go for. Commis is full, sidebar?, grand tavern?, boot and shoe? etc...
