We decided on Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Located on the Santa Monica pier which is a good place for it, considering the movie Forrest Gump had a brief scene at the pier.
One thing I want to say about the restaurants in LA. They are clean! When first arriving the bus driver that took us to out hotel told us about LA's restaurants grading system. Every door as you enter a restaurant has an A, B or C posted. An A means that the health inspector says it is very clean and following proper procedures, B is OK and C you better be really hungry! We never saw a C in any window and just a couple of B's. We ate at A places and they all were a lot cleaner that places in PA, and since I am certified in food service in Pa that says a lot.
