My birthday is coming up and my mother would like to take me out for lunch. I get to pick the spot.
I'd like something in the beverly hills area that has a nice upscale atmosphere, pretty and chic. A little prim and proper almost...If it has an outdoor area, that would be great too.
Price wise i'd like to get out the door under $100 with tax, tip, etc. Mum doesn't drink, so i'd probably just get a glass of wine or a cocktail.
As far as cuisine, I really enjoy fresh/simple/market driven menues that are popping up all over the place, as well as contemporary french/italian/california. Something light, delicious and elegant. Mum loves seafood, but it can't be a seafood "place" becuase i'm allergic to all seafood (sadly).
Any recommendations? I was thinking Spago... but is it overrated?
Thanks so much!
