Boston Chow- (not Chowder) Head wants to see what LA has to offer. In particular, have least 2 dinners w/ about 6 serious diners (NYC, SF, BOS) who also care about wine. Most staying downtown, 4 Seasons, JW Marriott etc. Anything goes. Steak? Modern? Ethnic? But probably more of a destination/fun place/scene rather than hole in the wall, chow-find. Some one else likely paying so price not an object (jk) - high but not highest end ok but emphasis on quality. Not allergic to cabs since Downtown reviews seem mixed on the repeat mentions but also prefer to not have to pack a snack for the ride, multiple cabs, etc. Not an easy pitch but... also a Red Sox fan so know how to rely on hope... Thanks!
