French and/or Sushi restaurants for special occasion?
Can anyone recommend a great French or Sushi restuarant in LA or Pasadena area for a birthday for a major foodie chef? We don't want to break the bank, but we do want great food and atmosphere for this friend coming in from Denver. Any suggestions?
Celedon offers some sushi...it's more Asian fusion small plates. But the atmosphere is fun and lively and the food is really good.
SHIRO! SHIRO! SHIRO!
The best of both worlds...Japanese/French...some of the best-quality fish, and amazing sauces for anything that get sauce...mmmm, the ravioli appetizer!!!
ORRIS ORRIS ORRIS!
No need to say more, other than the fact that it's related to SHIRO!
Amazing Cal/French/Other...the fish is amazing but the duck cannot be beat! Again, sauces and attention to quality and detail is excellent!
Any of these will be great!
I would second the recs for Shiro.
I would skip Maison Akira, merely living off of its past glory.
