I will be in LA for 2 nights at end on February. Last time I was in town we had the tasting menu at Spago and had an exceptional meal. This time I think I have mostly narrowed my list to Providence, Ink, Animal, or Sun of a Gun.
I don't want to spend a ton of money so I would only be doing the 5 course menu at Providence, will that be satisfying? Is that enough to give a tasting experience?
Is Ink worth a try, the menu looks good, but the tasting menu is brief. What is the deal with omakase?
Is the a consensus of which is better Animal vs. Son of a Gun?
Also open to any other suggestions.
