The best casual Mexican and Vietnamese in Glendale/Burbank/Hollywood area

Two NY'ers will be visiting sunny and warm LA next weekend.
ISO the tastiest Mexican and Vietnamese restaurants for a very casual, moderately priced delicious dinner. We both love spicy food. Are not drinkers, beverage of choice is a Diet Coke. Just want something to wake up our frozen NYC tastebuds.

Remember that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade totally shuts down the Upper West Side from early Wed. night to mid-afternoon on Thurs.
The parade staging area is in the area surrounding the Museum of Natural History/Planetarium - W. 81st St. / Central Park West.

Barney Greengrass might work for you - 86th St. and Amsterdam Ave.

Quiet UES 70's/80s place

I am not a coffee or tea drinker and because of health restrictions, I do not drink beer, wine or liquor. ISO a nice fairly quiet casual place for a first face-to-face meeting where we can have a drink and light bite.

new york city [near Lincoln Center, walker friendly]

I think it is, especially if you are accompanying someone using a walker.
1-hour plus to eat is a bit of a rush.

Once you get to the Met and use the elevator and then walk to your seat, especially on a high tier, can be a bit of a distance. Forget about stopping at the restrooms.

Sammy's Roumanian, never thought i'd see the day where it would be reviewed in the NYT times again.

Only given 1 star.

Terrible review.

Hey Pete Wells there are so many good restaurants to inform us of.

NY Times: What a waste of time and money!
