Help! NEED DINNER IDEAS FOR SOMEPLACE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BEVERLY HILLS AND SANTA MONICA!

OK - so I have someone coming into town from NY (a co-worker of sorts) and I need to take him to dinner MONDAY NIGHT. My office is in BH and he's staying at the Park Hyatt in Century City. First thought was to meet at Crustacean in BH... Need help with other ideas - Boa in Santa Monica? Lincoln or Wilshire in Santa Monica? Somoething else in BH? HELP! Ideas would be great (something between BH and Santa Monica) and not sushi (don't think he eats it). Money's no object (and don't say Melisse!) :)

            Whatever you do avoid Crusteacan like the plague!

              Yeah, Crustacean is pretty, but not good food. If money is no object, go to Spago. Not only is the food amazing, but it's fun and an institution, which is good for out of towners. Try the tasting menu. I'd also recommend Josie and Ji'Raffe in SM for fabulous food.
