Hi! Will be in LA for a long weekend soon. The dining focus will be mostly on ethnic spots (adored Mottainai, Torihei, Beverly Soon, Din Tai Fung, and Jitlada last fall and can't wait to try more), but we'd like to go to one nicer dinner this trip.
I reserved a table at Ink, but then today got an email that we'd scored a table at LQ@SK, too. As these are both tough-to-get tables, I'd like to free one up asap. I've also been considering Providence, and wondering if Providence has the better food, and it's just that Ink and LQ@SK are hotter at the moment. I know this is a bit of apples and oranges as LQ@SK is far less expensive than the other two, and cost is a consideration, although not the major one. We're staying downtown, so being able to BYOB and roll back to the hotel from Starry Kitchen is tempting - - but not at the expense of far better food.
So, folks that have experienced all three, knowing what you know, which would you recommend if you could only go to one?
Thanks in advance!
