Very good friends of ours are coming in from NYC the week after next and bringing their 5-year-old twin girls. They are staying at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills. I need a Hollywood/Beverly Hills/West Side/Santa Monica restaurant with an excellent dinner menu which is also tolerant of small children. These people are serious foodies, and yeah, we've already tried and struck out at Mozza (their only remaining midweek reservation was at 11 pm).
Where can we go? I'm sure these little girls are well-behaved (and have probably dined in a few upscale Manhattan restaurants already), but I also want a place in which they will enjoy themselves AND which won't treat us badly because we dared to bring children.
