LA Chowhounds, is this indicative of "finer" dining menus in LA?

I read an earlier post entitled, "LA Restaurants with no corkage fee?". Fierceminou kindly responded with a recommendation for a restaurant called Bistro K in Pasadena.

I've been looking for a restaurant for my husband and I to try. We are stuck in a junk food rut and are looking to up the cost and quality of our meals. So, I followed the link to Bistro K and read their menu.

I was just wondering if you guys consider the items listed to be indicative of the LA finer dining scene. I'm not asking about the prices, I'm asking about the hoity-toity descriptions and ridiculous sounding combos like:
"Roasted Maple Leaf Duck Breast from Canada served with Zucchini Crumble in a Cotton Candy Syrup Vinegar Infusion with Long Peppercorn From Indonesia"

Please advise. Thanks!
