Hi LA Chowhounds,
I am visiting for USC Parents weekend from Boston and tomorrow is my birthday. My partner has chosen Tavern for dinner tomorrow night but is now having second thoughts. Campanile is booked. We don't have any restrictions -- wondering if you might have other suggestions for a birthday dinner for three people? Also, we are going to be at the Santa Monica Farmers Market tomorrow. Can you recommend a good brunch place in the area? The closer to the beach the better but we don't want to sacrifice location for food. I have been looking at your board and so far all I came up with is Anisette or Amelia's.
