I'm about to graduate from law school, and doing a celebratory dinner next weekend. Thinking Melisse vs. Asanebo, but a bit unsure. Money not much of an object.
I know the two places are apples and oranges, but for some reason the come to mind. Also reasonably open on other suggestions; these two choices should give anyone that knows L.A. (I'm relatively new to town) a sense of other places to consider. If it matters, it's four of us, one of whom is a vegetarian (who eats fish), and we're all sushi nuts.
