hip place to take the boss in hollywood
We're looking for a high end, hip, celebrity likely dinner spot for 4 in hollywood on a friday night that we can get into at 8:30. I know, i'm laughing too. But the boss is in town from New York and we've got to impress.
Any suggestions? price isn't a concern.
If the boss is a meat eater, Cut is probably a good bet. Why would you need to impress a New Yorker with celebs, why not impress with some cuisine unique to L.A. Another idea is Urasawa, the prices and the food artistry there ought to impress a jaded New Yorker, and be good for padding the expense account.
Mozza, Cut, Spago, Koi, E. Baldi are all restaurants that i've had to book dinners at recently in a similar situation. I hope you have a good concierge service as most of these reservations could be hard to come by.
The setting and decor, as well as the celebrity quotient will surey impress. Food can be very uneven, even bordering on barely passable. But can't really beat the scene.
Say what you want about Chodorow, but the man can do interior design when provided the right setting.
