My boyfriend and I are looking for somewhere to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary. We're not necessarily looking for fine dining, just something *different* or *new* (to us) and super tasty, food. To get an idea of our tastes, in no particular order, below are popular CH special occasion suggestions we've already sampled:
Il Chianti in Lomita
Babita's in San Gabriel
Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga Canyon
Water Grill in downtown Los Angeles
Lucques on Melrose (Los Angeles)
Aqua in downtown San Francisco
I've read lots of suggestions for Spago, Providence, the like, but I'm not sure we're in the mood for that. That overly priced high end stuff seems to be the same wherever you go. So *new* and *different* should be the theme.
