HELP in Sherman Oaks

I read about a new restaurant in Sherman Oaks about a month ago and cannot remember anything about the name except the it was hyphenated. Like X-something.
Anyone have any idea? Thanks.

Need a birthday cake shaped like a basketball -westside

Try Carvel on Santa Monica and Sepulveda, they make Ice cream cakes and may make custom cakes. Otherwise, Cake and Art on Santa Monica (expensive) or another great cake bakery is The Cake Place on Barry Ave near Barrington and Olympic

Where would you go for a romantic special occasion (anniversary)?

Here are my favorites for occasions-in order
Wilshire restaurant at 24th and Wilshire Santa Monica-310-586-1707
Ask for a table outside in the Bar Patio
Foundry on Melrose - outside 323-651-0915
Lastly Melisse- in Santa Monica 11th and Wilshire 310-395-0881
Wilshire is definitely the hippest.

Best outdoor dining with a view?

Wilshire Restaurant at 24th and Wilshire has gorgeous outdoors dining and the food is wonderful. No view, but if you are considering dinner, it is dark anyway. As for a table near the outdoor bar. Or on the upper lever is a lovely fireplace.

Best Pancakes Ever? (For Dinner!)

Kate Mantilini on Wilshire and Doheny in Beverly Hills has marvelous crepe-like pancakes and I think they do serve them at dinner.

Westwood - nice special occasion restaurant?

I recommend Osteria Latini on San Vicente in Brentwood. Five minutes West of Westwood. However they do not have a full bar.
Matteos on Westwood Blvd. is somewhat redone with new ownership and a new chef. Have had a couple of good meals there.
Skip Napa Valley Grille and Tanino is just OK. Dark.
If you like Japanese, Tengu on Lindbrook is very pretty and quite good.

Unpretentious Saturday lunch in late June-where?

The Grill in Beverly Hills-great for lunch. Dayton just West of Rodeo Dr.
Or La Scala-Canon between Santa Monica and Brighton
