great place to celebrate a birthday

adler223 Nov 19, 2013 05:24 PM

Look for a great place to celebrate a birthday. Great food! Any thoughts?

  1. J.L. Nov 19, 2013 05:37 PM

    Your budget?

    What part of town?

    How many people in your party

    Weekend or weekday? What time of day?

    Type of cuisine you & your guests like / dislike?

    Ambiance? (quiet? raucous? elegant? casual?)

    Throw us a bone here! :-)

      Los Angeles or valley. Elegant or fun. High end but healthy. Three people. Weekend. Brunch or dinner. Foodie type place but not too thrilled with innards (liver, spleen and such). Creative but not exotic. Elegant atmosphere.

          I see your n/naka and raise you a Kiyokawa.

            Nobu in Malibu is the most beautiful restaurant in town especially at sunset.

            Melisse, Providence and Shunji should also be in the mix, though Shunji might not physically be considered "elegant" the food presentation and quality certainly make it well worth consideration.

              I was treated like royalty at Chinois on Main recently.

              The incredible desserts (many) were 'on the house' and I walked out so pleasantly stuffed on lobster.
              Chinois never gets old.
