I will be heading down to LA from SF over the weekend in late April and am deciding between the Comme Ca and Osteria Mozza.
We will be a party of 4, all in our mid-20s. I understand the basic differences: French Brasserie vs. Italian Rustic.
So Which shoud I choose?
This past Winter I was in NYC but tried a month in advance to get into Babbo but those phone lines were ridiculous and I was on hold for over 30 minutes (I started calling 5 minutes before opening). So Osteria Sounds good, for the Pasta and the Rustic food, similar somewhat to Babbo. I have been to Pizzeria Mozza and thought it was good, not great, but good.
As for Comme Ca, I haven't had French Brasserie food in awhile and I heard its a very loud and festive atmosphere with Good Food and drinks.
I seems like both a are in a similar price range.
My main priorities are good food and enjoyable surroundings to spend time with friends I don't see often. Thanks in Advance for your suggestions.
