Dinner in LA Friday night.....$$-$$$$ ??
Going to be in town (Brentwood) Friday evening, looking for a place to have a nice romantic or non romantic dinner maybe in the Beverly Hills/West Hollywood?? area.... was looking at La Boheme or The Palm or???? Old standby is usually Ruths Chris or somewhere in SM.... Any recs???
Since you mention Beverly Hills, West Hollywood "or somewhere in SM"... in that whole area, you might consider:
* Spago - Try one of their Tasting Menus. An L.A. classic in a nice setting.
* Valentino - Their regular menu has been solid, but has some misses, but their Tasting Menu has always been enjoyable for me, but it's been over a year since I've been back.
* Providence - If you're willing to drive a little bit east on Melrose, Providence is another great choice. Chef Cimarusti's tasting menus are fabulous. :)
Also, what did you mean by "or non romantic dinner"? Is the focus then on... good food? More casual, relaxed environment? If it's about good food, then definitely consider:
* Animal - Fantastic creations from Chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo in a casual setting.
