i'll be in LA this weekend from NY (girlfriend attending grammy's) and would love some reco's for places to drink or dine with great food and/or design. it would great if you guys could suggest some alternatives that cover more than just the highest price bracket (ie. we're happy to slum for character, great food or atmosphere). even a brunch place would be great. my favorite used to be kings road cafe. is that still good? also tried and enjoyed sona for dinner last time, and formosa bar for drinks. we're staying at the westin, wherever that is (everything else is booked up because of the awards). thanks in advance!
