Carmel Restaurant Update
We ended up at Aubergine, we had the tasting menu and thought it was very good! One of my better meals of late. Don't have many (if any) restaurants of this style in LA.
Also dined at Bouchee, not recommended. Went there by accident. The scallop and veal entree was one of the worst I've had in a long time.
Thanks again for the input.
