Cut...closed. Hatfield's...closed. Drago Centro...closed. Melisse...closed. Anything other than Spago? Birthday girl tends to like her food cooked so sushi is out. Blt is open...what do you guys think? Los Angeles to Orange County. I'm open to all suggestions. Nice ambiance would be a major plus.

    one more to toss into the mix... Hungry Cat is always one of my Sunday faves. Second Providence and Grace too.

      P.S. I was just reading about Grace. Sunday night is "burger night". Whatever the merits of the restaurant - I don't think burger night is what you had in mind. So - for Sunday nights - I'd check that the restaurant is serving a normal menu.

        Water Grill is open too. And looking at the list of restaurants I got from the concierge - those that are open on Sunday that I think are "big deal" are Providence - Matsuhisa - Lucques - Jar - Grace - etc. (there are really a lot open on Sunday - just haven't heard of a lot of the places on the list before). BTW - don't know anything about these restaurants except what I "read in the papers"..

            Just off the top of my head - Bazaar (like many hotel restaurants) is open Sunday. So is Craft/Craftbar.

              Blt has a great reputation and Cafe del Rey is very good with a relaxing atmosphere. For top notch Italian fare try Lago in Santa Monica...view the 3rd St. Promenade hustle from the serene dining room or dine "al fresco" and join the crowds.

                here's the menu from cafe del rey.
                although they do serve raw fish, the bulk of their dishes are cooked.
                the room is really lovely, and has a very nice view overlooking the boats in the marina.
