Trying to choose (Jar vs Hatfield's vs Opus)

Hungryfina | Aug 23, 2007 10:21 AM

Next month I am heading to La for a couple of nights, and I need help settling on a restaurant. One night is already booked at Osteria Mozza and I'm having trouble deciding what to do the other night. I've basically narrowed it down to Jar, Hatfield's, vs. Opus.

It's a Monday night, so I thought Jar might be fun with it's mozzarella menu but I have a few reservations - 1) pretty much every time was available on and I HATE empty restaurants, 2) do they offer the regular menu as well on monday's? 3) Could that be way too much mozzarella since I'm sure we'll have a bunch at Mozza the next night?

Opus I'm also nervous about because it has gotten a bunch of mixed reviews (people either seem to hate it or love it) and since it also had every time available on

Hatfield's sounds like it is a safe bet food wise, but my dinner companion is bringing her teenage daughter and while I've heard she's an eater I'm worried that this restuarant might bore her since I've heard it's not much of a scene and has pretty plain decor.

Thanks in advance!
