Not to be missed dining and drinking in LA
We will be visiting LA from London shortly, during which my partner will be celebrating a special birthday. We only have 4 days during which I want to ensure we have some great dining experiences and visit a few nice bars as well. Any recommendations of not to be missed places for the best of Californian cuisine?
For the best of California cuisine, the tasting menus at Providence (seafood centric but the tasting menu always includes an excellent meat course) and Spago (Wolfgang Puck's flagship) would be natural choices, especially for a special birthday.
