I need to find a wonderful dinner spot for a special anniversary dinner in Westwood.My wife and I will be seeing a show in Westwood but would like to have a fantastic meal before hand.Can any forum members give me some advice or recommendations.Thank You in advance!
Well, if you are attending something at the Geffen or on campus and want to park once and just leave it, then in the Village you have Napa Valley Grill, Tanino, or Palomino B&G, in that order.
1043 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90024
Napa Valley Grille
1100 Glendon Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90024
Palomino - Los Angeles
150-10877 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024
I don't know that any place in Westwood proper would qualify for a fantastic meal, but agree that Napa Valley Grille and Tanino are appropriate for a special occasion.
If you can consider going out to the surrounding areas in West LA/Century City/Brentwood/Santa Monica, you'll havemuch better options. Melisse, Craft, Jiraffe, and Valentino are some ideas.
If you want something more intimate and still walking distance, you also might consider Soleil, a small French restaurant just south of Wilshire on Westwood. It is quite good, although certainly not in the Santa Monica league just mentioned:
1386 Westwood Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90024-4980
