San Francisco foodie needs recommendation for "date night" restaurant in LA
My wife and I are traveling to LA for a relaxing weekend and would recommendations for a sophisticated, top-notch restaurant in LA. Bonus points: our ideal restaurant would be new, unique to LA, mostly for locals, and not filled with tourists (like us!).
I think from what you describe you would like Animal for wonderful meat dishes or Son of a Gun for seafood, both from the same creative owners and chefs.

I'm a fan of Bastide for a great sophisticated, date night, LA type experience.

Unique to LA is Park's BBQ in Koreatown. Some of the best cuts of meat in the city. Wonderful flavors and service. A true dining experience with all the meats grilled at your table. If you go make sure you order the boneless short ribs they are truly incredible. Open late too.
