Help a Boston Hound out- birthday dinner recs?

Parsnipity | Oct 29, 2013 05:38 PM

Hounds- am looking for a great birthday dinner recommendation for my baby sister's 30th birthday. I have no west coast knowledge at all, so I turn to you for help. The birthday girl and her husband are (starving) grad students and we'd like to treat them to a really special dinner. She is mostly vegetarian (sometimes will do a little seafood in the right circumstances); he eats everything. They live in Koreatown and do not have a car so it should be easy to get to via public transit (do you have that in L.A.? Kidding- don't hate me!). They love ethnic food so as long as the restaurant is in the special occasion category, anything goes as far as cuisine. If they were here, we'd take them to Oleana- upscale, veg-friendly Mediterranean by Ana Sortun. Price- should be total check of no more than $200 including a drink each and we prefer to send a gift certificate versus just give them cash which they'd be tempted to spend on books. Thanks & happy to report back on their behalf.
