I'm assuming you are going to rent a car...

The Getty
Griffith Park
Hollywood/Highland
Disney Concert Hall
3rd Street Promenade and the pier(Santa Monica)
Grove and Farmer's Market
South Park area downtown
Long Beach Aquarium
Drive up Mulholland
Eat at Katsu-ya Studio City
Echo Park and the Silverlake Reservoir are always neat to visit
Beaches North of Malibu
Old Town Pasadena

^Pretty good list... I'd add the Venice Boardwalk to it.

I would mention that at the Griffith Park they should go to the Griffith Observatory with its great view of L.A.

Since things are so spread out, you might want to take a half day LA city tour first to get an idea of where you want to got back and see more of (also will save you from planning a long visit to some place that isn't that captivating). Also depends on where you are staying, what kinds of things you are interested in, and whether you have a car. Most restaurants in LA are casual. Nice restaurants, casual with some flair.

I'd pass on Mastros.

Katsu-ya is "business casual" i guess, but i've seen people there in tshirts.

We will have a car so we can get around town. Our 3rd day out there we are running down to San Diego to check out the zoo. So I guess one day will be in the Beverly hills/hollywood area and then another day for the rest. I really like the Mulholland idea.
