My husband and I will be in LA for one night (at the Beverly HIlton) and since it's our first kid-free night in over 2 years we are looking to make the absolute most of it. Can anyone recommend the best/most interesting area for walking around at night and trying out several great restaurants without having to drive from place to place? Since we'd like to visit a few restaurants in one night, we would be particularly interested in places that have nice eat-in bar areas to sample a couple of dishes rather than any formal sit-down. We especially love sushi so we'd like to stop in at least one sushi place.
We're not from the area, so any help is appreciated!
