I am looking for a restaurant to take my friend from NYC to. It must be good quality, great for people watching, "happening", and money is no object. Trying to find something new. We usually end up at Mastro's, Georgios, Ago, Dana Tanas, Matsuhisa, Ivy at the Shore, The Grill, Toscana, Cafe Del Fini, Locanda Veneta, Cut. My friend does not like "interesting" food and is pretty picky.She likes pretty basic fare-Italian, American or Japanese. She eats out EVERY night in NY but loves the L.A. scene. We went to the Lodge last time she visited but we had a very negative experience. They kept up waiting for 1 hour and a half and the steaks were VERY salty....(Maybe it was an off night). Looking for some place new!!!! It can be anywhere in between West Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Suggestions??? Thanks. How is Moza?? Simon L.A.???
