birthday dinner Sunday night for ChowPup WLA or Santa Monica
Chowpup's birthday on Sunday needs a special celebration; want to stay in West LA or Santa Monica. Suggestions please and has anyone been to Annisette recently?
Although Anisette is fine for a coffee and croissant for breakfast, or some shellfish or a croque for lunch, I do not think it is really appropriate for a special celebration birthday dinner. The food is ok, but the seating is very uncomfortable and the service variable.
If you are up to spending a few bucks, Josie in Santa Monica is an excellent restaurant, and it is open on Sundays. Also excellent in Santa Monica, and I think open on Sundays are JiRaffe, and La Botte.
Casual joint for a pup's big day - How about The Counter @ Ocean Park Blvd?

It's been a while since I have visited Chinois on Main in Santa Monica, but when we lived in SM my kids loved it for special occassions (so did my husband and I.) I even took a former first lady to Chinois for dinner and while she raved about the food, I think she was even more impressed when Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hanks and Mr. and Mrs. Steven Spielberg were seated at the next table. I hope its still as good, because I really loved the food. There is also the beach side resto at the hotel Shutters but it was a little stuffy.
