I am taking my family to LA for a family vacation (we are from the Kansas City area) and I am looking for someplace to celebrate my daughter's 20th birthday. There will be 5 of us -- myself, my wife and our daughters (20, 17 and 12). I have already made reservations at The Bazaar. I've been there before and I thought that would be a fun place. We all are adventurous eaters.
Other birthday dinner spots I'm looking at:
- Musso & Frank
- Il Cielo
- The Little Door
- Grill on the Alley
- Michael's (Santa Monica)
- Wilshire (Santa Monica)
I know that my daughters would like to go somewhere that they can dress up a little.
We are staying in Santa Monica, but we can go most anywhere.
Relatedly, as we are staying a week, I am planning on taking them to:
- Parks BBQ
- In N Out (as we don't have those in KC)
- Apple Pan
Any advice on the birthday dinner and any iconic and unique LA spots would be appreciated!
