My husband and I are in LOVE with La Folie in San Francisco. Since we're not planning on a trip up north anytime soon, we're wondering if any of you Chowhounds can point us towards a dining experience in Los Angeles we might equally enjoy.
Here's what we love about La Folie:
-- the creativity of the preparation (it's French food without any stuffiness -- it treats flavors and presentation like something that's supposed to be fun!)
-- the fact that they never skimp on their best ingredients (if it says there is lobster in the dish, there are LOTS of mouthwatering lobstertails. if you order foie gras, you'd better believe you're getting enough of a portion to share and taste over and over again)
-- the fun of choosing a prix-fixe "Discovery Menu"
-- the friendliness of the entire waitstaff (they treat even us youngpeople like we deserve to be pampered)
Thank you for your help!!
(Note: La Folie is $75/pp for the Discovery Menu, and we're not looking to spend much more than that)
