Anniversary Dinner In West LA/SaMo Area
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.
Capo is top-notch Italian and very close to where you're staying. The Penthouse, Whist and Catch are all very close and very nice.
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).
Vincenti (great Italian on San Vicente)
Valentino (Italian on PIco)
Peppone (old school Italian in Brentwood)
Melisse (French on Wilshire at 11th)
Cut (for the steak)
josie (french/californian - rising star restaurant)
valentino (italian - old school, consistent, pricey, but authentic and atmosphere)
top notch Italian, fantastic service, lovely romantic space
my favorite restaurant in LA!
Will you have a car? What hotel are you staying in, and did you want to walk to dinner?
Catch at Casa del Mar (really spectacular food)
Chinois on Main
Whist at Viceroy
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.
