Any recommendations for my birthday dinner ?Looking for something with great atmosphere and excellent food. I prefer Italian, but I am open to suggestions. I have lived in Southern CA for a year, and I am trying to hit all of the great "hot spot" restaurants. I have been to Mozza (pizzeria and osteria), Osteria Angelini, Simon LA, Ivy, Penthouse in Santa Monica and a great Italian in Brentwood (forgot the name!)
I was thinking of Jar or AOC. Any other ideas? I will be dining with my husband.
