My wife will be celebrating her second 30th birthday in October. We'll be there for a week beginning the 23rd. We will be staying at the Beverly Wilshire and will have a car. General thoughts on food, lunch places, dinner places, cool places with a view, exceptional bars etc. would be appreciated. I have tickets to the Hollywood Bowl on the 26th so ideas on how to properly pack a picnic basket are very important.
We generally travel to Los Angeles at least once a year from our home in Connecticut. We've lived in Asia, spend time in Europe every year and appreciate most foods.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
