restaurant that is fantastical
what restaurant has amazing food with a fantastical setting, one where you are taken far away. chateau marmont has that great out door setting, really bad expensive food, osteria mozza and craft have great food, cold setting... i know there must be something majical that doesnt have awful food.
Providence. I LIKE it in there. Amazing food. If you can, get the chef's table.
Inn of the Seventh Ray, but it has been getting a few negatives, lately, on the food. Try the Brunch
Granita was like that (sniffle) but it is gone now.
The patio at Spago is very nice.
Patio at Chez Mimi.
a few others
Agree with all of Diane's, but would like to add two.
The garden at Michael's in Santa Monica is a beautiful setting, and the food is quite good. And...for a Los Angeles setting, I don't think anything can surpass the patio at the Hotel Bel-Air. If you can snag one of the five or six booths at the edge of the patio, you will think you have died and gone to heaven!
Actually, Chateau Marmont has a new chef and the food is fantastic. Have you been recently?
Other options: Ortolon, Citrus at Social
