    Spago. Everyone loves Spago. There are many threads on Chowhound which discuss the Tasting Menu.(s)

      I've never been to Spago but I've been to Craft. But I think I can recommend Spago based on my less than stellar meal at Craft.

        A better tasting menu? I suppose it depends on your wife's taste in food.

        However, for a usually solid experience, bank on Spago.

          There's a new thread about Craft. Master Chef has left and they're waiting for another....GO TO SPAGO

            Been to both and both are good but I would choose Providence (chef's tasting) over both

                Spago.
                Solid and consistent.

                    Spago Beverly Hills continues to be one of the best restaurants in America. The other locations - not so much.

                      Spago. Been to Craft twice. Meh. Craftsteak, yes, Craft, meh.

                        Haven't been to Craft yet, but can heartily recommend Spago.
