Coming to west LA from Alaska over my birthday weekend, looking forward to one sensational meal out. Looking for outstanding, innovative, interesting food with an emphasis on the fresh or seasonal, and top notch service. Atmosphere is a distant but still important third. Oh yeah and there's the wine. After reviewing menus until crosseyed, I'm leaning toward either Joe's or Josie. What's your vote? Any place you'd recommend more highly than either in the MDR/SM/Venice area?
