Koutoubia on Westwood Blvd. does Passover Sephardic style, which often means more nuts, fruits and grains and fewer artery-clogging schmaltzy things. Saffron, preserved lemons, fennel and fresh tomatoes aren't ingredients you generally see much in a standard deli or Ashkenazi holiday spread. 2116 Westwood Blvd., Westwood, (310) 475-0729.
