Hey everyone --
My girlfriend is coming in from out of town and I want to take her somewhere great for dinner. But this is her first time in LA (long story here, not worth posting to this board) and I think she'd enjoy taking in a little bit of the scene. So while places like Joe's and Lucques have incredible food and are usually good date spots, I'm sort of looking for something a bit younger and trendier (but still with excellent food). On the other hand, I don't want to do anything on the Dolce/Geisha House extreme, I just can't handle that much scene.
Any ideas? Someone told me there are a couple of new places on La Cienega that might be good, but I forget the names.
