One Dinner in LA - Providence v. Redbird v. Shunji v. n/naka v. Maude

kickerconspiracy | May 23, 201501:41 AM

Because the girlfriend decided she wanted to do Disney Friday and Sunday, making it impossible to dine at Trois Mec (still getting in a dinner at Urasawa on Thursday as a solo diner before she arrives), I have one dinner on Saturday to plan. This is for Saturday 6/6.

I got reservations at Providence at 6, but almost like that Groucho Marx quote 'I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member' I'm kind of weirded out by how easy it was to get it. Is Providence over? I don't want to eat somewhere that's just coasting on its rep. I live in SF, and while there are some renowned restaurants that are easy reservations, they are usually a little past their prime. Obviously suspect.

I almost chose Shunji over Urasawa for Thursday so that is definitely in play. I love the menus at Maude and Redbird as well. Providence (tasting menu) seems like its going to cost $500 at a minimum with t/t for 2. Price is really not that big of an issue but I don't want to light $$ on fire. Any other restaurants worth substituting instead? Let me know hounds!

Trois Mec,
Urasawa,
Shunji Japanese Cuisine,
Redbird
