I am in sincere need of some help from my fellow gourmands here on Chowhound. My bf's 30th's birthday is coming up and I wanted to take him somewhere special for this birthday in LA. I've done a ton of reading on this board and I think it's maybe come down to Providence or Cut. I know they are both north and south of each other and if it was a simple choice of seafood v. meat, it would be easy. But I wanted to look for an experience where my bf could look back in 10 years and say, "Wow, that was a meal." I haven't been to either, so I have no frame of reference. If anybody who has been to either restaurant, or any other "birthday destination restaurant" could offer me perspective, that would be much appreciated!
