Long time lurker, first time poster. I have enjoyed reading the many threads and learning more about LA's great restaurants, and hope to contribute to some future discussions!!
My birthday is coming up on Feb 12, and my wife wants to take me out for a special dinner (my mom is even watching our 15-month old baby!). I want seafood (lobster, crab legs, etc) in a nice atmosphere.
We'd prefer to stay in the Valley (due to the baby), but would consider driving to West LA or Santa Monica if there's somewhere truly memorable (like a few years ago, we went to the Ivy in Santa Monica, where I had a fabulous garlic lobster over pasta).
Please help me out!!
