Can someone suggest a restaurant in the vein of Lucques, Osteria Mozza, Church & State..?
I was considering Cube but it also seems maybe a little too casual/country home-ish?
we like places that have a bit of a NY vibe, not all white tablecloth-y, but good food and wine...my other friend suggested aoc..
Please, all suggestions welcome. Eastside, West Hollywood, downtown, wherever..
Try Rivera in Downtown. The food is quite good and it's got a really nice vibe. Comme Ca is also good.
Lots of good suggestions already, to which I would add Grace, Jar, and perhaps Josie (if you're willing to drive to east Santa Monica). Grace, in particular, seems to fit the bill.

re: David Kahn
Love Josie's but they definitely qualify as "white tablecloth-y.
Just thinking what you (OP) may mean by new york vibe. Have you looked into Bazaar?
And speaking of New York, I went to Dan Tana's in BH/ WeHo last weekend and swore I was back in the 'hood. Really good Italian food like I remember from southern CT.
