LA thoughts from a DC Chowhound

I posted a query last week, prior to a w/e LA great recommendations...then this is my response to a fellow DC hound...

just in your shoes last week. got chowhound recs for Zax, Josie and AOC. results in order: Zax, Josie, AOC. loved the small feel and the menu and wines at Zax. Josie good, more upscale. AOC was good but the service was horrid - got the first three dishes, then waited a solid hour for the next two, and by then was not hungry and had rung up a very high wine tab, hence not really tasting what was finally delivered. didn't seem to phase the waitress. the best find was Joe's at Venice for lunch. creative, divine, scrumptous and the wine list was excellent and the desserts were probably the best we've ever eaten. the service and the ambiance matched the wonderful meal. go, go and go there, i say! have fun and drive the coast highway for us back in dc having to get back to work!
