It was my parents anniversery last weekend so I had wanted to take them to Citizen Smith for dinner on Sunday. But they want to eat at 5pm because of the long drive home. Smith doesn't open till 6. I've taken them to Magnolia and they really loved it. I've never been to Water Grill, but I think I'll wait till I'm not buying dinner for 4 people to try that place ($$$$$).
Here are some other places I was thinking, but they open too late: Cobras & Matadors, doesn't open till 6. Simon LA, 6pm. Grace, 6pm. La Buca, ditto.
Other options that are open at 5pm; The Hungry Cat... can anyone think of anything else? I was hoping to take them someplace sort of on the nicer side.
