I'm possibly going to be in LA for one night and trying to find one great meal. I don't keep up much with west coast food because frankly I haven't been there in 12 years. I'm looking for a nicer place where "dressy" jeans are still ok. I know this is pretty wide open, but I'd like to find a restaurant that is an example of LA from both a food, culture and lifestyle perspective. The location isn't that important, I'm willing to drive/cab/car service to get to the restaurant. A great california wine list would be nice, but a list with funky small producers is ideal.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
