I am looking for a nice restaurant that I can by a gift cirtificate at as a wedding gift for an LA hound. As I live in NY I am not up on the new and interesting restaurants. Thanks.

      I don't know if there's a single dish at Hatfield's that I am over the moon about as much as the total experience of the restaurant as being a suitable wedding present .

      If your friends are into sushi, there ain't no better gift than table for 2 or should I say counterspace for 2 at Urasawa, assuming you want to spend the $$$.

      Also, chef's tables at Providence, Table One (Hotel Bel-Air), Meson G, or Patina...

      Love Grace as well.

          Love the idea of sushi, but Urasawa is a little (and by a little I mean a lot) beyond my budgit. Any other sushi places? The Hump?

          How much are you looking to spend? My favorite is Providence, but it is rather expensive. My second choice would be Grace--expensive, but less so. I like AOC a lot but I feel that it wouldn't be a good wedding gift--not a romantic atmosphere, and less special occasion-y than the other suggestions.

            I would add two LA restaurants more to the mix:

            Hatfield's
            (here is a review from the LA Times: http://www.calendarlive.com/dining/virbila/cl-fo-review30aug30,0,2718092.story

            )

            Table 8

            The Peninsula Hotel I think is the Best Choice!!! The food is UNBELIEVABLE and the Service is THE BEST in Los Angeles! The Belvedere
            here is a link if you want to look them up:

              Here are a few favorites:

              Los Angeles-

              AOC
              Sona
              Grace
              Hotel Bel Air

              Not trendy, I went there for the first time Saturday night, is Carlito Gardels on Melrose. The food was terrific and it was very romantic. The service was great. They have a website.

              There are so many to choose from!
