Cool place for biz dinner

Syphrite Nov 16, 2012 08:26 PM

I'm going to be in LA in a couple of weeks from NYC and am looking for a cool/nice place to take a client for dinner. Bazaar was suggested and Laurel Hardware as well, but not sure if either spot is worthwhile? I'm more into farm to table and new American style food. Any suggestions?

        Sotto. Not Laurel. Its way to crowded and loud.

          I'd suggest Animal.

              Thank you everyone!

              Already have Gjelina reserved for one day. Have heard good things about it. Any must-haves on the menu?

                The vegetable dishes are outstanding. The RI littlenecks I had with a curried broth were delicious.
