I have just landed a new job, and my boyfriend's mother has sent us a present for it- $200 to eat high on the hog.
I am looking for your "once in a lifetime" suggestions, anywhere in LA County.
I am partial to French, but will entertain Italian, Cal, Continental, and any fusion. No steak houses, Mexican, Sushi Bar (Japanese is OK), Chinese, or Thai. Please, no scenes- the food, wine list, and service should be the stars!
Looking for better than the following:
Geoffrey's in Malibu
anything owned by any celebrity
anything that is popular just because it is new
Gimme your life-altering experiences!
