Buffalo Wings & Pizza churns out a spread of wings, pizzas, and burgers lovingly designed to fill every hunger-shaped hole in your stomach. The eatery's menu boasts tender chicken wings in flavors that range from mildly spicy to suicide, and more than 20 toppings and 11 sauces weigh down its 9- to 20-inch pizzas to keep them from blowing away. Five beers such as Fat Tire, Pacifico, and Blue Moon splash into glasses straight from the keg, and a full bar supplies patrons with cheer-inducing libations during games displayed on Buffalo Wings' projector.
Inspired by the culture and culinary traditions of Brittany, France, Cr?me de la Cr?pe Bistro specializes in authentically prepared sweet and savory crepes, which are staples of the region. The staff stuffs buckwheat breakfast crepes with combinations of eggs, meats, and cheeses, and dessert crepes?such as the bretonne?come layered with Nutella, bananas, and housemade whipped cream. Hearty pastas, risotto dishes, and specialties such as beef bourguignon join the menu for lunch and dinner, helping guests recover from stressful daytime chores, such as ironing clothes while wearing them.
The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into three-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea, coffee, and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy. Prop guns and gunshot sound effects may be used during the performance.

When you think of an old-school, family-run Italian restaurant, Compari’s Trattoria Pizzeria is it. There’s nothing fancy about its décor or menu, this Centinela Avenue outpost simply pushes out tasty, inexpensive Italian food served by nice people that you might have seen around the neighborhood. From its candlelit red-checkered tablecloths to the mural of Venice and overhanging grapevines, this small, cozy eatery doesn’t only provide the intimate atmosphere, they deliver when it comes to the authentic northern Italian cuisine. Noted for its pizza and pastas made with fresh ingredients, the food at Compari’s is very well-priced –even their specials are priced at less than $15, and a glass of wine hovers under $6. Lunch specials are popular with the workaday crowd, and their LAX-adjacent strip mall location makes them a good fit for travelers looking to dine out before hitting the tarmac.
Chef Akasha Richmond dedicates herself fully to her restaurant—she even shares her name with it. At Akasha, she gathers ingredients from family farms, organic growers, artisan food makers, and companies that stick to fair-trade practices, unlike Oregon Trail barterers who tried to pass off shag rugs as mink. These ingredients fold into modern comfort-food menus covering lunch, dinner, and prix-fixe dinner, as well as Passover Seder and Easter Brunch. To complete a plate of diver scallops in coconut curry sauce or a flat-iron steak with fingerling potatoes and bulb onions, Akasha has an extensive wine list and a house cocktail menu.
