I am coming to LA with my wife to visit her best friend as a suprise for her 40th birthday in a couple months. have been between NYC and Washington DC for the past 15 years and unfortunately know nothing of the dining scene on the left coast. I was hoping that you LA Hounds can help this East Coaster find a couple great special occasion and one or two fun places to go. Anywhere in the area...Thanks for your help!!!
