We want great Los Angeles restaurant
- robs911 Oct 8, 2008 03:41 PM
Canadians visiting Los Angeles. We want atmosphere, romantic setting, good food, good service. Cost is not important. We are staying in Beverly Hills. This is for dinner.
Ok, I'll try and help.
Do you have any cuisine preferences or restrictions?
In terms of atmosphere, do you want quiet-romantic, or more of a scene?
Will you be looking only to stay in the BH area, or will you have a car and be able to travel further afield?
Off the top of my head, and without knowing the answers you'll provide, I'd consider the following, although it is by no means a complete list:
(in no particular order)
Saddle Peak Lodge
Josie [if you can get a table by the fireplace]
you have a lot of options - it really would be helpful if we had more details about your preferences...at least cuisine preference, distance you're willing to travel, and whether or not the wine list is a consideration.
We have no cuisine preferences, we do love sea food but not important. We will have a car available to us. We want quiet romantic OR (big or) something spectacular for the memory bank. We have been to Spago We even met Wolfgang himself. One of our nights we will eat at the Bel-Air.
Thanks for taking the time to help
Totally agree with ns1.
robs911, do a search on the LA Board for "Urasawa" and you can read all about this legendary restaurant. Outstanding.
Also consider Providence's Chef's Tasting Menu.
5955 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038
218 N Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210
Urasawa is WAY overrated - left unsatisified and hungry just last month
Providence sounds like your best choice (seafood & romantic) but I thought it was overrated as well - uninspired (in it's defense it has been about 2 years since I had the tasting menu there) - in my opinion tasting menu not even close to Spagos
Mozza - 8 for 8 in my book - each visit is better than the last
Comme Ca - best steak tartare ever, great drinks and atmosphere
i know you're asking for dinner, but if you like views, i'd suggest at least getting lunch at The Getty.
i agree with Urasawa, Providence, Saddle Peak, Craft, Sona, etc.
if you like waterfront views, i'd grab drinks at The Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. don't get food, just drinks at sunset time.
