Help! Need Best of the Best

AdventuresomeJ | Mar 10, 2006 07:54 PM


Am leaving tomorrow for LA. We got a last minute and unexpected windfall to spend on a WONDERFUL restaurant. Here's the Mission:

1. Mind blowing food
2. But! Bringing two kids (ages 12, 3)so can't be a snooty/romantic place.
3. Hollywood area, please (but can incl. downtown, Silverlake, WeHo, Santa Monica, etc.)
4. Historic a plus, but a la mode infamous even better.
5. Mind blowing food, did I already say that? Can be steak, can be Japanese, can be anything. Think: Desert Island Must and Ultimate LA experience.

Oh, and excellent cocktails.

What are your choices, please? You can be as creative as you like, my kids were raised on Beethoven and the Ramones equally. My husband and I are former NY chowhounds.

Will report back for sure and thanks in advance for anything you can suggest.
