My birthday is the 30th and I was all set to go to Grace with the family (4 of us) on our Blackboard Eats! coupon (3 course prix fixe for $38), but Grace is not open on Monday. I then thought of Upstairs 2, but it is also not open on Monday.
I'd like to go somewhere new, so no Fraiche, Rustic Canyon, Saint Amour, Spago, JiRaffe, Hatfields, Riva, Wilshire, AOC, Lucques or the Foundry (our Dine LA meal there was the best meal I've had in LA in years).
I have not been to Ortolan -- I'm worried it will be somewhat too stuffy for my 12 and 9 year old, who have enjoyed many of the above restaurants with us. So looking for very good food in a somewhat relaxed atmosphere.
All suggestions welcome! I have of course considered delaying the dinner until Tuesday...that is still a possibility.
