New to LA - looking for birthday dinner suggestions!

I just moved to the area this year and have not gotten into L.A. much as of yet. For my birthday, my best friend is coming to town and we want to hit the city and experience LA for all that it is!
Looking for:
Fab Food (any type - we're adventurous!)
Good Service
We'd be willing to pay $50-100+ each for dinner and drinks...It will be a Tuesday night, if that makes a difference for accessibility. Thanks in advance for the tips.

  1. any preferred area?

    perhaps Bazaar would fit your bill, since you can hang out in the lounge afterward.

    not scene enough, but Gjelina has fab food.

    again, not sure if it meets sceney criteria, but Animal also is stellar foodwise.

    perhaps for scene, you might want to go somewhere like Katsuya or Katana

    8439 W. Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069

    Katsuya Hollywood
    6300 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

    1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, USA
