Graduation Dinner for 4 on westside
I'm in need of suggestions for a law school graduation dinner for my parents, boyfriend, and I on the Westside. We are all foodies, and do not care as much about "the scene" as the food. I really enjoy Tavern and I am looking for something similar in atmosphere and price range. Outdoor seating is always a plus, but not a necessity. No Italian please as we are all New Yorkers and have plenty of that at home.
Thanks so much.
Gjelina on Abbott Kinney in Venice is my favorite restaurant in SoCal the last few years. Call now for a reservation and ask for the patio -- they'll tell you they can't promise it, so ask again when you confirm.
Spago has a nice patio and several posters on this board have raved about the tasting menu there.
Many say that the best tasting menu in town is at Providence, a bit further east.
You will not be able to hear one another at Red Medicine. Providence is excellent. One Pico at Shutters is pleasant. I also like Rustic Canyon and Farmshop.
