We live in Los Angeles and will be staying on Michigan Ave. in June Can someone suggest a great Italian restaurant for us to spend our 50h wedding anniversary?

    Spiaggia is the tops in the city. Its on Michigan Ave. FYI, its very upscale and formal (Jacket required) and pricey (tasting menu for two with wine pairings is around $650 for two. They also have a la carte if you prefer), but after 50 years, she deserves it, right? That's barely $10 a year. Reservations are a must.

    If that's not your style, they also have a Cafe Spiaggia next door which is less formal with a more limited menu (but same kitchen.) Or Coco Pazzo is a very nice place within a 5 minute cab ride.

      Since you're on Michigan ave. and it's such a festive event, it's hard not to recommend Spiaggia.

        I agree. It doesn't get better than that. And congrats on your 50th anniversary. And it is the diamond anniversary - just a little hint.
