Need - Hot! Happening!Fabulous!Delicious Restaurants for a New Yorker who lived 15 years ago in LA.
I have been away from LA for a while now so I feel out of touch with the great restaurants that are the now hot spots. I am visiting LA next week so would appreciate anyone's don't miss this restaurant while in town list along with any comments about their favorite hot spot. Food is more important to me than scene but a good scene is always fun. I will be in Santa Barbara and Orange County as well so if anyone has a good restaurant in these areas that I shouldn't miss please tell me. All cuisines are acceptable - no dietary restrictions I'm on vacation. Thank you.
