Please help... my Mom is having - gasp - surgery on her stomach, of all things, which will render her unable to digest anything starchy for months, and pretty much anything at all for a little while, at least. She and Daddy will be in L.A. just before this frightful thing happens, and they want to know where to have the kind of meal one would want to have before becoming unable to ingest much of anything enjoyable for quite a while. Something spectacular. Silence-inducing. Grunt-causing. Yet elegant and glamorous, a place in which one would want one's parent's to dine in style. Something to tide her over until her poor little tummy can digest again. I'd say (Dad - forgive me) that money is no object.

BTW - bread - exquisite bread (she bakes her own) is probably her favorite food. This is not a woman who necessarily needs the exotic - just the absolute most delicious fresh perfect real food there is. Maybe something fresh-fruit related for dessert, or creme caramel.
