60th Birthday

Will be in Los Angeles for my birthday. My host has suggested Rivera, Hatfield, and Lucques as possible dinner choices. Thoughts?

  1. I would rank them this way for a 60th b-day celebration.

    1. I guess I don't understand the importance of a 60th birthday recommendation. Somehow, I don't see Paul McCartney posing this question:)
      Have fun and dine anywhere which tempts your palate.
      Happy Birthday!

        Not sure what the OP's background is, but in Japanese culture, the 60th marks a turning point in a person's life, both in work and personal goals. It is so important, the 60th b-day even has its own name, called a "kanreki", and is celebrated as a sort of festival by all who know this person.

        So yes, a big deal to find a nice place to mark this turning point.

      2. Spago is still great.

        1. Just spent our 13th wedding anniversary at Hatfield's

          It was wonderful and a great special occasion spot. I have not been to Rivera, but Hatfield's definitely blew any meal at Lucques we had in the past, out of the water.
