Formal Restaurant


What would you say are L.A.'s most formal restaurants, where men wear ties/coats and women dress up? A friend of mine is looking for such a place to celebrate an anniversary. . .

  1. Melisse Santa Monica is pretty high-end and formal

    1. Melisse, Bel Air Hotel, Bastide, Spago.

      But LA is a very laid back town, so anything goes, anywhere - especially when jeans cost $300 and sandals are upward of $800.

      1. Hi. This thread has a duplicate: Please continue your replies on that thread. We'll be locking this one. Thanks, everyone.
