I'll be graduating from USC in about 6 weeks and my parents will be coming to LA for the ceremony. We're planning on going out for a nice dinner, so I wanted to have my fellow chowhounds weigh in. We're a family of gastronomes and there's only 3 of us, so we're open to pretty much anything and in any price range. However, since it's a special occasion, I wanted to keep it to a more refined/fine dining experience. I'm thinking of something along the lines of Hatfield's? Or maybe even something avant-garde (just to experience something new)?
Would love to hear your input!
