Amazing experience (ideally French) within 90 mins of LA...

Hey guys! Am looking for the following for tonight, thought you might be able to help:

We want to get out of LA proper tonight and find some place that will floor us- some type of rustic getaway, I'm thinking along the lines of Big Sur, PCH, a hideaway in the desert- that sort of aesthetic; some place really unique and an off-the-beaten-path destination.

Ideally the cuisine would be classic French or New American.

Any ideas? Any amazing hidden gems within 90 mins? Thanks!

  1. Saddle Peak Lodge may just be what you are looking for. The perfect rustic getaway in Malibu Canyon with wonderful food especially their game meats.

      Great! May be a little too close for us (I know, sounds weird :)), but definitely in the right direction.

      Keep 'em coming!

    2. Suzanne's in Ojai if you can still get a reservation.
