We will be in LA, staying in Beverly Hills, for one night. I haven't been to LA in more years than I can count. What restaurants would you recommend? We like italian, seafood, american, pretty much anything but sushi/asian food. We aren't looking for a French Laundry kind of experience, but something that has good food, casual dress, and a good atmosphere. Can you help me?
I also need recommendations for Santa Barbara...Big Sur area (near the Post Ranch Inn), and my favorite city, San Francisco. I'll post on those boards too.
