...that is "quintessentially LA" and a "real scene" (i.e., good for gazing at the beautiful people and LA stars and starlets, I believe). He's a very recent East Coast transplant, and wants to show visiting relatives something memorable -- preferably in BH, Hollywood, Venice, MDR, maybe Brentwood (but not Santa Monica for some reason).
This is definitely not my area of food interest...for some reason, the glitterati don't seem to frequent the taco stands I like...
I tried searching the archives for suggestions, but can't seem to come up with the right keywords (star gazing...people-watching...scene...?), so I'd appreciate some suggestions.
Some places I've considered suggesting are: Reign, Spago BH, Campanile...and then I run out of ideas.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
