price comparison - Little Door vs. Asia de Cuba?
I'm planning a group dinner for 7 - some from L.A., some from NYC.
They want to go to Little Door, unless it cheaper to do Asia de Cuba. I would throw out a 3rd suggestion, but most of the places I go are less of a scene, and they want that (along with good food of course).
I've been to LD and Asia de Cuba, but the latter was years ago and I really don't recall the prices. Can anyone give me an idea of how much they cost, perhaps relative to one another?
(By the way, at Asia de Cuba we'd have cocktails, while at LD I'd say we'd have a $40 or less btl of wine).
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
Given that Asia de Cuba is in the Mondrian I can't imagine that it could be cheaper than The Little Door. Scenewise, here's a link to the New York Times' website where you'll find an article from Sunday's edition on Star Spotting in LA. Obviously, you don't want to go to Jerry's Deli for any serious food. It's odd having a New York writer based in LA opining about LA scenes but maybe some of your pals saw the piece. You might want to consider Alex in the old Citrus space on Melrose. Got a pretty good writeup on Sunday (LA Times Magazine) and with your size party you might be able to get a reservation at a prime time. Haven't been, but driving by the exterior is entirely different. Looks like it's faced in slate.
