Need good food and cool scene Hollywood
I'm a male in my 30's and entertaining a female from out of town this weekend.
Looking for a fun, cool restaurant with good food and atmosphere in Hollywood. Not over the top trendy, but enough of a scene where she'll have a fun "LA" experience.
food's not fantastic...definitely okay though...since Yamashiro has great views & an exotic vibe (ask to sit out in the porch area). Food is Cal-Asian-Sushi.
AOC is always a good bet...great food, refined scene.
The places on the Sunset Strip are a total circus, fun, but with variable food quality.
Pace (italian; pronunciation "pah chay") on Laurel Canyon is a classic old place with a strong sense of LA's rocking hippie-ish past
Bella Cucina on Hwd Blvd makes a decent attempt at Italian food in a newly hip setting
