Off-campus dining is as diverse as Los Angeles. If you're in the mood for Italian, try southern Italian in Playa del Rey and northern Italian in the Marina. There are numerous pizza places within walking distance of campus, along with the usual fast food staples like Quizno's, KFC, and Taco Bell. Venture away from campus, and you'll find restaurants appealing to all tastes and price ranges.
One popular locale for good food is Marina del Rey. Drive along Admiralty Way and drop in on one of the high-priced favorites that overlook the marina. Among the little seafood places is a franchise of the Cheesecake Factory; however, bring some cash because valet parking is mandatory. Another good option is the Warehouse. This Polynesian-themed restaurant offers steaks, lobster, and fish. If you want burgers, try Islands. There is no shortage of restaurants in the area. Try Venice, Playa del Rey, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, and Santa Monica for more fine fare.
