Last Meal in Los Angeles

Hello All,
I'm leaving L.A. after 6 years for a job. I'm moving to DC. I'm going to have my final dinner out with friends this Wednesday. I'm having a very difficult time determining where to go. Hip v. Classic. Really good food v. quintessential L.A. If you were moving away, where would you have your last meal?

    1. re: Scotty

      If you want REAL mexcan food not something drizzled with a "sweet California sauce" go to TEXAS !!!!

    2. Martini at Musso and then steak at The Palm or Mastro's! Maybe Chinese in San Gabriel some where, Chung King for some heat. Mexican at Babita also in San Gabriel. Enjoy what ever you get. Via con Dios!

      1. Langers. (and yes I know they close at 4pm)

        1. i would select chinese food in the sgv or mexican food, because

          you can get terrific french, italien, and steaks in DC as well as in virtually every large eastern city.

          1. Definitely Mexican food, when I left California for a couple years, I could not find any Mexican food that was even close. I would go to El Tepeyac for a traditional California/Mexican send off.
