Good restaurant before flight out LAX, suggestions?

Love MB but haven't been down there in quite a while. We're taking late night flight out of LAX and would like to have a nice meal in the area. What's the word on good restaurants and we are open to all kinds of foods. Thanks!!

Around the pier area, The Kettle is always popular, decent food, mid priced. Fonz's is also good. Perhaps others can suggest some other places in that area.

Along Rosecrans Ave., there are lots of good places. For Italian, Lido's is really good. There's also an Il Fornaio - an upscale Italian chain place - good but not my favorite. Paul Martin's is great for American food. There's also a Houston's, Daily Grill (I heard they may be closing), McCormick & Schmick's, PF Changs, and Cozymel's for Mexican food, Johny Rocket's for diner type food. All are pretty good though all are part of chains of varying sizes. Macaroni Grill (I personally don't care for them) is also there.

Restaurants in the downtown MB area we like in no particular order:

Petros Greek Cuisine in the Metlox Center


Rock 'N Fish just up from the Pier.


We just dined at Mangiamo's last night, very good Italian.


Talia's (small sister of Mangiamo's)


Darren's Restaurant


Fonz's Seafood


Cafe Pierre French


The Daily Grill, on the El Segundo side of Rosecrans is closing, and The Yard House is moving in.
