SAAM and what else?

I'll be going to LA (my first time) next month and already have reservations to go to SAAM with a couple of friends.

I want try out another top fine dining place, but probably will be dining alone. What else should I consider? It seems like Providence, Melisse, or Patina are contenders. Currently, I booked Providence and would do the full chef's tasting menu. And if I go on a Monday, there's no corkage fee.

Patina wasn't really only my radar, but it did just recently get 4 stars from LA times last year. But the Yelp aggregate reviews (i.e. ratio of 5 stars compared to 4 stars) don't stand up to that of Providence or Melisse. Spago?

FYI, I'm from and live in NYC, so I wouldn't go to say, Craft.

Thanks LA Hounds!
