I'm back in LA for the summer after another year in NYC for school. Last year my mom and I spent the summer trying out restaurants and tried some great ones (Lucques, Josie, Alex, Cobras and Matadors, Campanile, Chaya, The House, Mastros, Sushi Nozawa, etc.) and I hope to do the same this year. There are some I'd want to revisit but I'd love to try some new restaurants or any that I missed. I've heard about Opaline, Em, Sona, and Bastide. Any opinions or other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
