If you're looking for something a little different, and you're in the Fairfax district of LA, check out Chameau. It's this cute little moroccan restaurant. It's a little pricey and a little loud, but the food is good and the decor righteously hip. They're serving alcohol these days, contrary to outdated reports that they are BYOB.
Some friends took us there Friday night. The appetizers are to die for. The deep fried mussels with yogurt dressing are sublime.
Eat it, you'll like it.
