  1. You might want to read through this recent thread, (link below) for ideas:

    1. A good friend loves this place, not so much for the food as the atmosphere and he raves about the service. Food is a 6 ish on a scale of 1-10, but get a window view and enjoy !

      1. For "hip," here are a few different ideas, not all "the best" for food, but definitely "in"

        Koi and Katana as well as Fat Fish draw hip crowds
        Geisha House is hip and fun
        Citizen Smith
        Sushi Roku
        The Ivy

        Yamashiro has the great view and decent food, but I don't generally see the stars there that 21 year olds care about.

        1. Matsuhisa, or Nobu Malibu for sushi and fusion fare. Great food and definite celeb-spotting.

          Katana is also a good choice for a special occasion - robata and sushi fusion rolls.

          CUT, if you don't mind spending a LOT of money, but then again, your girls turn 21 only once!

          For less expensive steak but a still celeb-stop, Mastro's, next to Spago.

            We haven't been to Mastro's since it first opened, but isn't it a place more known for an older crowd, like 60+. Is it a place 21 year girls would enjoy?

              Well, the first time I went, I was 21, and I liked it. :) The crowd upstairs is pretty fun.
