I'm in LA for one day from minneapolis. What's my must visit place for Friday dinner?

  1. What part of town? What Budget? What type of food?
    Animal is a great place for solo dining.

      Right up my alley. This is great. Can I walk in?

      1. re: traceygirl

        You can walk in at 6pm when they open..I'd make a reservation just to be sure.

          If it's tomorrow night (OP didn't say which Friday night), res might be tough, but relatively easy to walk-in solo and get a seat at the bar.

            Next Friday. I'll make a reservation. Or go at 6.

    2. Need parameters, especially your location. LA is a big place with lots of bucket list/must go-to places, and there are challenges getting from one part of LA to another. Any preferences at all as to food type, budget, casualness, ethnicity?

        Ok - budget, under $100 for one person. No Indian food. And I'm staying at hotel red in Hollywood. Casual enough that a Minnesota girl doesn't feel out of place. I will look nice and cute though!

        1. re: traceygirl

          Car, walking distance or public transportation?

          1. re: traceygirl

            Can't find a Hotel Red in Hollywood, unless my search skills are completely failing me. Found one called the Redbury.

            If that's where you're staying, I don't know if it's a "must visit" but Littlefork nearby is good.

            But if you can get into Animal, I'd go there.

              Yes, that's it - sorry, off the cuff and didn't look it up! Animal sounds like the consensus.
