"Californian" specialty restaurant in LA for NYers one dinner in LA

Can someone recommend a place that is unique to LA that has great food? Was thinking it would be great to be "California" style cuisine but we are open to other types of food if it is a great place.

  1. If I had one night in Los Angeles for a special dinner I would go to one of the following places:

    Bastide
    Providence (seafood)
    Saddle Peak Lodge (game is their specialty, it's out of the city, but IMO the best restaurant in socal)

      The Restaurant at The Getty ,or The snack bar at The Griffith Park Observatory

    2. Saddle Peak is very unique and good!

      1. If you are interested in experiencing some of the finest California cuisine in the State, and want a great food experience to boot, then the answer is Spago for a Tasting Menu.

        Take a look at this recent review (with photos) by Exilekiss to get an idea of what Spago "brings to the table."
