I need suggestions for a place to take an out-of-town guest for an early, nice dinner either in Burbank or Hollywood. Here's some parameters:
1. He's from the countryside in Oregon and trips to big cities are occasions for him to go to distinctive places.
2. Distinctive for him means both good but also hip and/or well-known. For instance, the last time he was in town, he wanted to sit at the bar at Spago's. So that's the level of place. A place with name-recognition would be great
3. He has an 8:30 flight out of Burbank so it needs to serve early.
4. His hotel is in Hollywood so that area could be a possibility (I've thought already of Musso and Franks).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
