So I'm headed to LA in mid march, and I'm trying to get a head start on figuring out restaurants. With the exception of bad food of course, there is nothing I hate more than an empty restaurant. So what are the hot restaurants right now?
I've done and loved Koi, Ago, Dolce, Ivy, Giorgio Baldis, the Lodge, Matsuhisa, Grace, AOC, you get the picture.
I'm looking for great food, fun people watching, and a chic setting. Nothing stuffy, old, or too touristy. Price is no issue, and I am partial to ethnic foods, but I eat pretty much everything.
I'm looking for 3 dinners so feel free to give me multiple recs. (also any thoughts on how well wilshire, jar, and chameau fit my description?) -- Thanks!!
