I have dinner with my fiance and his friends (they own two restaurants) this Thursday post Barker Hanger Antique Show. I was thinking Akasha but I'm completely underwhelmed by the menu so I thought we could go to Fraiche...but this is the most challenging reservation to get!? We can get a table at 8:45pm?! It's Monday, the beginning of the week and I need reservations for Thursday - why is it so hard to get a table in this town? Any ideas on either a)scoring a res at Fraiche b) other restaurants to try somewhere between Culver City and Beverly Hills area.
