Thank you all for your ideas.We ended up with only one night and we went to Nine-Ten and it was fabulous. Grea,t attentive, friendly service. Outstanding fish (halibut). Fresh, fresh salad. Amazing dessert.
Nine-Ten - The hamachi is amazing. The soup is always good. They also usually have outstanding specials. I had a delicious salmon dish last week. My husband had the duck and loved it! Zenbu - Wonderful ambiance and great sushi.
George's ocean terrace for lunch or dinner...casual George's Modern for gussied up dinner Eddie V's drinks in picture window area of the La Valencia Hotel Marine Room for drinks and app's in the bar Alfonso's for nachos and marg's Piatti's
Today I went to George's. The food was good (I had George's "famous soup" and fish tacos), but I have to say that the overall experience was just so-so. Whereas Prep Kitchen felt cozy and welcoming, George's felt a little too trendy and crowded for my taste.
I went to Prep Kitchen tonight (based on the rec's here) and it was fabulous. I had the PK Brick Chicken (celery root puree; pancetta; brussel sprouts). It was fantastic. And the wait staff were great. I was happy to be in a place a little more out of the way than George's...
