So far my dining experience was mainly focused on San Diego but I am traveling more and more to LA and starting to look more into what options I have in LA. One thing what is missing in SD is a large variety of very good upscale dining options. There are a few very good ones and it is getting better and better over the last 4-5 years but LA is still ahead. I was just wondering what upscale reataurants (or top 5 restaurants) chowhounder in LA would vote as the best. I am open to all kinds of food and locations.
