As a frequent reader of this board, I feel like I know where to go for very expensive meals or fairly cheap meals, but what about in between. Where do people go for a moderately priced but nice dinner for two? Not Melisse, not Josie, not Spago, but not Pink's or Phillipes either.
Looking for the best meal I can get for two people at a place where we can linger. Maximum around $100 (we're not big drinkers). Looking for French, Italian or California cuisine, mid-city LA (though would travel further if it's really good).
