I live in Santa Monica. My daughter wants to go to Jar for her 23rd birthday dinner. She says, "I just think it looks really cool and I am more interested in décor then food, I know that we are not alike in this way! "
I don't want to spend $100+/pp when she doesn't even care about the food.
My new idea is to take her to a stylish bar for a drink - let her soak up the coolness and decor and then go somewhere I like (say Rustic Canyon) for an excellent, but closer and more reasonably priced meal.
I'm thinking of the Huntley Penthouse bar - any other suggestions?
