Beverly Hills birthday dinner?

  • 7
  • Share

The lady and I are gonna be in the Hills for an event on the night of my birthday, and we don't frequently get out that way so we wanted to dine in the area. Any suggestions on where to eat? Some expense is expected but nothing exorbitant (i.e. no Urasawa, probably no Cut either). Food valued over romantic ambiance or anything like that.

  1. Without knowing what type of food preference you have, I highly recommend Scarpetta for Italian. Had an amazing dinner there on New Years Day. My husband and I decided to share a bunch of items and they brought everything out split for us - presentation & service were both fantastic. Definitely recommend the creamy polenta & spaghetti. Happy birthday!

      Second Scarpetta. I also like Bouchon which is in the same Montage Hotel compound.

          Turns out I have a $100 gift certificate to Spago that I had totally forgotten about. Spago it is. I've never been before; 5-course tasting menu seem like an acceptable option?

              I'd love to do the 10 course (of course), but that's a bit out of my budget, even with the gift certificate. Is there a huge quality difference between the 10 course and the 5 course (instead of just quantity)? I've read the quality difference between the tasting menus and alc is huge, but haven't seen anything about the difference between the two tasting menu options.
