Lunch: Spago or Bouchon, or someplace else?

Celebrating our 2 year anniversary in a few weeks and want to have a special lunch. Wish it could be dinner, but I'm on pregnancy bedrest so we are limited to outings after doctor's appts.

Would prefer to stay around Beverly Hills/West Hollywood area. Thinking of Spago or Bouchon - any recommendations for one over the other? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

    Spago, Bouchon, or Scarpetta would work in that area depending on what type of cuisine you're in the mood for.

    I like Spago, especially in the garden/patio area for lunches and brunches when its sunny. It's a very nice way to take a leisurely lunch. The food isn't particularly exciting at lunch but you could remedy that by requesting the chef's tasting.

    On food alone, I probably like Scarpetta the best of the bunch.

      I also love Spago's wonderful patio.

        I agree about the patio. I don't think you can really go wrong at either. Congrats on the anniversary and baby!! ;-)

      Thanks for the feedback! We had dinner at Scrapetta and it was amazing. But I think I'm leaning towards Spago and the patio seating, hopefully will be a sunny day. I didn't know you could get the chef's tasting at lunch, but will definitely inquire about it.

        Not sure about chef's tasting at lunch. I would call to see if they can. Enjoy!

        haven't been to Bouchon, but Spago never disappoints. and i *heartily* second Porthos' Scarpetta suggestion.

        happy anniversary, and congrats on the expected bundle of joy!

          Providence does a lovely lunch on Fridays.
