Despite my offerings to make a stellar meal, the grandmother wants a restaurant. And she wants bouillabaisse. I've thrown out the ideas (to mom) for Church and State and Ji-Raffe. Church and State is a long drive, at least with the (difficult) guest of honor in the car... and Ji-Raffe hasn't confirmed that they're still serving it regularly. Price is not an issue, just an outstanding rendition of the requested bouillabaisse. Would prefer to be westside - Bev Hills, West LA, Samo, even a bit east toward West Hollywood, possibly mid-City, but that may be pushing it. Also, Encino to Studio City-ish would be fine too. Party of 5, and not too late... 6/630/7 at latest. I'll do the legwork on finagling a res, just need a suitable option. Thanks so much in advance... we've been wracking our brains!
