We are celebrating an anniversary dinner, and staying at a hotel near the beach in Santa Monica. We enjoy top notch Italian or great seafood, or even a spectacular steak. Any suggestions? Price is no object.
For something different try Zu Robata on Whileshire just west of Bundy. It's new and Japanese tapas style. The best food I've had all year and I am hard to please! Great drinks and very nice atmosphere.
Second the opinion regarding Capo. Great Italian food, great potential star sightings (I know, so "un-Houndish", but you gotta admit, sitting next to Steven Spielberg who was dining with Tom Hanks is kinda cool).
