Hi! I'll be visiting friends in L.A. the last week in October. I'm looking for a list of new restaurants locals recommend. We'll be in town Oct 27 - Nov 2. Friday and Saturday nights may be a group of 6 or more--if that makes a difference. Last trip we hit Animal, Comme Ca, Gjelina, Church and State--loved them all...wanting good food + great atmosphere--please let me know!
Thanks,
Soraya

    Check to see what will be going on with Starry Kitchen during your visit http://www.starrykitchen.com/

    Look into Son of a Gun - the second offering from the boys at Animal

    Consider Playa or Rivera by Sedlar

    Upscale French at Melisse

          No to Spice Table? Any reasons why? I've been around 8 times or so and have enjoyed every visit. One of the few things we have in LA that other cities don't. They do a stellar job there with pretty much everything.

          I'd say LQ@ SK (Sun-Tues at Starry Kitchen) and Spice Table and Pizzeria Mozza should make for a pretty stellar trip. Foolproof almost and a great way to highlight the diversity and quality in LA dining.

          Look here for Spice Table Recs and beautiful photos courtesty of Perceptor:

          Reservation dates for LQ@SK. Reserve NOW. No corkage for BYOB. Go to KL Wines on Vine. Super creative and refined cuisine in a casual fun setting...

        Voltaggio's new restaurant Ink, if you can get a reservation.

        Mezze at the former Sona space. Ate there recently and was very impressed.

        Hatfields if you want to do something a bit more formal.

        Picca for high end peruvian.
