Best Martinis in LA?
We need a great birthday celebration restaurant -- great food, great martinis. Thoughts?
Lola's is more martinis than food, but their food is still very good and if you can snag one of the lounge areas, all the better. I think their martini menu is something like 5 pages. Definitely a fun, hip place.

Two places come to mind. For classic martinis, there's Musso and Frank. For modern martinis, The Hungry Cat. At both, you'll be able to order classic likes a sidecar or a manhattan, but HC will give you a modern twist on classics, like their cucumber martini or fig bourbon martini. HC has a better menu, in my opinion, but that's because I'm *this* close to being a pescetarian, and I'm a big fan of Hungry Cat's seafood.
