Visiting from NYC - what's the "best" of the things that aren't great here?

Hi all,
I am starting to trawl through this board, but wanted to put the question out there, in case someone has been/entertained someone in my position and has a hit list...

The Situation:
I will be visiting for 4 days in May.
I will be with my husband (who is Italian) and my parents (who are Indian but live in the UK - I am also originally from the UK)
We will be staying in a hotel in Beverley Hills, but will have a car and are definitely willing to travel for great eats.
We ate and enjoy all types of food and different cusines.
We don't have any budgetary restrictions and would be just as happy in a roadside shack as a 3 Michelin star type of place.
It will be my parents' first visit to LA.
I am looking for the best of the stuff that is not available, or not great, in NYC.

The Ask:
So, that would mean that I do NOT really need reccos for Italian or French (unless someone disagrees!), BUT do need reccos for Mexican and Korean (before anyone says anything, I know that these are getting better and better in NYC!).
I would also LOVE reccos for other restaurants that you think are outstanding - especially if it is the kind of food/type of place/kind of atmosphere that I would be hard pressed to find in NYC.

All tips and reccomendations will be most gratefully recieved!
