I moved to LA two years ago and have gotten a little out of the NY food loop. Gone are the days when I could rattle off all the movings and shakings in the NYC restaurant community, so alas I look to you all for some culinary advice.
I am going to be returning to town and will be celebrating my birthday. I am looking for suggestions as to where to eat. While money is not really a concern, I am not speaking Per Se or Masa money. Also, sushi is not really an option (I live in LA for god sakes!!). All other cuisines are viable options.
Note that Peter Lugers and Blue Hill will be consumed earlier in the week.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated
