  1. Guaranteed, or hoping to see celebrities?
    If you want a guarantee, Mr. Chow is it, sit at a booth in front and watch the madness. Never fails.
    Chateau Marmont in the Garden is another.
    If not, Dan Tana's is OK, Koi maybe, Il Sole as well.

    This isn't about food right? Because that's another story.

    1. Nobu in Malibu almost always has a celeb or two.

        After Nobu, go shopping in the Ralph's across the street...or, in the afternoon, just shop around the stores near the children's play area.

      2. Lunch at the Hollywood Fred Segal. Madonna was there last time I swung by.

        1. Mozza, Katsuya, STK, and Cut would all be good choices.

          1. The Ivy on Robertson for lunch is always packed with celebs. For dinner, try Koi, Nobu, STK on LaCienega or Katana or Katsuya on Sunset. In Beverly Hills, Mastro's, Mr. Chows and Cut are always good choices for celebs as well.

              We've always had sightings at Taverna Tony in Malibu, and during the daytime go to the little park nearby.
