I'm taking my wife to the Regent Beverly Wilshire for dinner and to stay the night for her birthday this weekend. I was wondering what in the area serves up a tasty and relaxing lunch in an outdoor setting. We'll be shopping in Beverly Hills that day and wanted something nice and relaxing. We're open to any cuisine, but favor French, Japanese, Californian. Price range from $20-$40/person.
Also - any thoughts on the restaurant? We're dining in the dining room as opposed to the lobby lounge. Haven't heard much about it here. . .
