Alma or Allumette, Bestia or Bucato...oh and Orsa & Winston

lax2mia | Nov 9, 2013 07:38 AM

First trip back to my hometown in over 5 years and planning has been tough. Booked a table at Alma but mixed reviews have me hesitant. Saw the menu and concept at Allumette and was intrigued. Also booked Bestia but unlike Alma it looks like sentiment is universally positive. Bucato caught my eye too but didn't want to have Italian twice during my short stay so looking for opinions on which.

Unrelated, also booked Orsa & Winston. Saw there's 5 and 9 course options. Anyone know if they are different or is 9 course just an extension of the 5?

Lastly, seems like every restaurant I look at is closed Sunday, Monday or both. Any favorites that are open Sunday/Monday?
