Great place to take my 20 something son to dinner near Griffith Park

I am coming from the Bay Area to visit my son, who recently moved to LA -- he is living near Griffith Park. We are going to dinner on Sunday night -- is there a place around there (or near enough) that has great food, great atmosphere, is hip and fun? I am not so much worried about price, but great food is important, and a wine list that maybe goes beyond California wines would be a huge plus. We love rustic italian food, tapas, asian, most anything.

Thanks so much for any advice you might have!

  1. Wine list for you, or wine list for you and your 20 year old son?

    The answer to this question may lead to very different results.

      1. If Silver Lake/Los Feliz area is not too far, I would recommend Canele or Cliff's Edge.

        1. Canele or Barbrix would be my recommendations. Canele has a cool neighborhood bistro vibe while Barbrix has a more hip vibe, but both serve great food and wines.

            i'm dying to know what the difference between "cool" and "hip" is.

          2. L&E Oyster Bar in Silverlake has also been getting high praise...if you're into oysters/seafood.
