San Francisco Chowhound seeks LA advice

We're coming to LA in September. Among the restaurants we're considering are Citrus,
Osteria Mozza, Craft, Sona and Mako. We're staying in the Westwood area and like creative cooking, including fusion and interesting combinations of different cuisines. We've already been to Hatfield's and Luques. We would appreciate any advice.

  1. Those are all great choices. You might also consider Orris since it's very close to where you're staying. It's one of my favorites.

    1. re: mollyomormon

      An excellent addition but note that Orris does not take reservations and is small plates style--ideal for sharing a lot of dishes though. I would also suggest considering Ortolan and Spago.

      176 North Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

      8338 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      2006 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

    2. Based on what you're looking for, I would say go with Sona first. The others are excellent choices but more straightforward in their cuisines.
