Trendy & Fancy for B-Day Dinner (Westside or abouts)

Hi all,

Looking to take my girlfriend someplace special for her birthday in a few weeks, and am having a bit of trouble coming up with a place that strikes the right balance between having the right crowd (mid 20's - mid 30's), great service and memorable food. Places that come to mind are Boa (but have already been with her), Vicente (food / service are brilliant but having only been one I recall the crowd as being a bit older), Campinelle (again, am concerned that the crowd might be too old). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. West at Hotel Angeleno might be good or the Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel. The Ivy on Robertson or Chaya Brasserie or Table 8 could also work. Katsuya in Brentwood or Axe on Abbot-Kinney would also be good choices.

    1. Wilshire might be a good idea too...

      1. maybe the penthouse @ the huntley hotel in santa monica.

        1. Foundry on Melrose has a really nice back patio and great ambiance. Comme Ca might be another option.

          1. Penthouse, Katsuya....and Abode!
