Dinner in SM

Looking at either Rustic Canyon or Capo....any thoughts? Have been to neither.

  1. Capo is wildly expensive, and Rustic Canyon is impossibly loud. How about Wilshire, Anisette, Jiraffe, or maybe even Michael's or Chinois?

    1. re: nosh

      i definitely agree that capo and rustic are completely different atmospheres/options. rustic canyon is loud, but i've liked the meals i've had there, though i prefer brunch. i think of capo as a little more expensive and old school.

      i agree with nosh that wilshire, anisette, and jiraffe are great choices. michael's to me is more in the vein of capo, if you were looking for that type of experience.

    2. I haven't been to Rustic Canyon, but I was just at Capo about a month ago. I quite liked the food and the low-key atmosphere, though it is perhaps a tad pricey for what it is. See my report at:
