Need rec: for this Sunday. 6th Wedding anniversary.

From OC but willing to go pretty much anywhere in LA near Santa Monica/Bev Hills/Downtown area.

Some of the places in LA that I've been to and enjoyed.

Craft
Crustaceans
Spago
Lawrys (but did not want chain this time)
Stinking Rose (but want somewhere that does not sell garlic hot sauce at the front door)

Anything new I should try?

Thx

      I ended up @ PROVIDENCE on Melrose.

      The best meal I have had in my life... Did not do the tasting, but instead ordered A LA CARTE. Amazing from beginning to end.

      You might check out Vincenti in Brentwood, just off the I-405 on San Vicente Blvd. A great Cal-Italian for special occasions. You could stroll over to Suzanne Goin's new restaurant ,Tavern, for a drink at their lively bar before or after.

        If you go to Tavern, make sure to get a reservations - uber popular now. For dinner, that is.

        Ortolan is French, and super romantic. Mention to them it is an anniversary, and Chef Eme will treat you well. On West Third in Mid City.
