      Depends on the scene you like...my first choice would be Jones Hollywood (reasonable prices, great food, excellent bar) its dark and sexy and rock n' roll. If you want something quiet, try Tosca Wine Bar on 3rd. Small plates, good wine choices.

        thanks for the replies. im looking more for food than scene. however, i do like a hip scene with music and not so rowdy (geisha house).

          well LA is pretty damn huge

          couple places ive been thinking about are Osteria Mozza, Jar, and Opus.

          You'd likely need reservations to all of them except opus.

            Katsuya (either one). But good luck getting in on a Sat, or getting a reservation.

            Other ideas:
            Whist at Viceroy
            Penthouse at Huntley
            Chaya Venice
            all on the westside.

              second Chaya Venice - I had a really good meal there last week. I was impressed with the service, too. I want to check out the sushi special at the bar during happpy hour one of these days.

                WHAT ABOUT A PLACE WITH A LIVE BAND? JAZZ OR SOMETHING
