Hollywood?WEHO restaurant recommendation

Fellow Chowhounders, do you have some good restaurant reccomendations for 4 senior high school girls wanting a fun night out at a nice dress-up place in Hollywood / WEHO? It'd be a somewhat early dinner - 7:30ish on a June Friday night - and price isn't an object...within reason.
Concerned Mom & Dad ask for your help!!

  1. Ago, STK, Cecconi's and Koi would have all blown my mind, had I ever had the fortune to be a senior high school girl.

      Thanks! I told them that chowhounders had a sense of humor.

        Did you also tell them that, often, we spell poorly?

        1. re: Ciao Bob

          Blame it on Chowhound for not having automatic speelcheck.

          1. re: stevedi

            I guess I didn't realize it until now, but I guess its Firefox that spell checks my posts on Chowhound. I always thought the site had spell check.

    2. While maybe not as fun as other suggestions, Hatfield's on Melrose just west of highland blows all of them out of the water, food-wise.
      it is sensational!

      1. i'd go with Katana or Katsu-Ya if they like sushi.

        Bazaar could be another fun option with good food for mom and dad to boot...

        1. re: Emme

          Are Citizen Smith and Dar Maghreb still open? Thought both had closed.
          You would surely have the place to yourself in either instance.

              I had heard Dar Maghreb was closed too, but I went by there a month or two ago and they were open for business. Could be a fascinating place for the girls. Like a reconstructed Moroccan palace where you eat on low couches with your hands. 6-7 courses of delicious Moroccan cuisine.

              Hatfield's, of course, is truly amazing if price is no object.

              I'd stay away (far away) from Citizen Smith.

              I haven't been to XIV but Michael Mina's food is always amazing--and expensive.

              Personally, I love Cafe des Artistes. It's more moderately priced and has a relaxed, garden atmosphere but Jean Pierre is a gifted Alsatian chef.
