My sisters are going to visiting the week of Christmas from SF and Seattle. I suggested that instead of exchanging presents this year we treat ourselves to a really good meal. I doesn't have to be for Christmas Day or Eve-just some time within that week (so we won't have to contend with holiday closure.) We live in Hollywood but would consider going pretty much anywhere. Any thoughts for 4 people for a really special meal. The fancy ones I have thought of so far that I have never tried are Bouchon in Beverly Hills, Melisse in Santa Monica, Bazaar on La Cienega, and Craft in Century City. A couple we have tried but I don't think I would necessarily go back to are Water Grill (just didn't find it good value for money) and Church and State (ditto the value for money comment).
What other ones should we put on the list for consideration? They don't have to fancy or even wildly $$, just something special for 4 people to splurge on at Xmas time.
Thanks for the help!!
