Santa Monica advice, please

If you want to go somewhat high end, I've had two fantastic meals at Jiraffe recently.

Atkin's-Friendly Dishes in LA?

Big fan of U-Zen. Masasan is a local hero.

Veal Shanks in West LA?

Thank you all for your help. I went to Jordan earlier today and found some very nice looking cut veal shanks that they sell as "Osso Buco" for $6.99/lb. The owner of the store told me her supplier is the same as Bristol Farm's next door (which, like Whole Foods, sells them for $16.99/lb.) If true, it's pretty hilarious. Will let you know how they work out but they looked pretty damn good. Thanks, Hrhboo. Will check out Bob's for next time too.

Veal Shanks in West LA?

Anyone know where to get affordable veal shanks in West LA? I've heard Monte Carlo in Burbank sells them for $6.99/lb. but I'd rather not have to drive that far. I know Whole Foods carries them but it seems pretty silly to me to use meat that costs $16.99/lb for braising.

While I'm on this, does anyone just have a good reasonably priced butcher in West LA?
