...been out of the loop on new LA restaurants since giving birth to twins eight months ago. My husband is giving me a get out of jail free card to go out for an evening with my out-of-town sister, who, like myself, really enjoys a great eating experience.
Any new and interesting restaurants we should consider? Would be great to not only get a fun atmosphere, but also some interesting and well done food and drink offerings (a'la Animal) or unique (a'la Alinea in Chicago, where my sister is visiting from, but we'd probably like to not spend quite as much!) There's really nothing we don't eat, and love pretty much all cuisines and types of food. Fancy drinks aren't important, but a nice solid wine list would be great.
We live on the East side of LA, but would be willing to cart ourselves to the Westside for something to shake up my mommyfied, cheerio-laden, pureed everything existence as of late.
Thanks in advance!!!!!
