The best Tasting Menu in LA for a special ocassion?

Miesque | Oct 7, 2012 03:18 PM

Hi, I'm a Chowhound newbie so please be gentle!

I'm looking for suggestions, hints and ideas on the best tasting menus in LA. My father is in LA on business and is staying on for the Breeder's Cup. I'll be in LA for the Breeder's Cup via work. We have 10/28-11/1 before the racing travelling and sight seeing. I'd like to treat him to a tasting menu somewhere one evening during that time.

I've been been looking through old threads and have seen suggestions for Melissé, Providence, Saam @ The Bazaar and Osteria Mozza. Some of the threads were older though and I know places can improve (or not) over time! So any fresh suggestions would be great. Budget wise about $500 total including tax and tip is the upper end of what I'd look at but less is always appreciated!

I'm leaning towards Saam for José Andrés' "Molecular Gastronomy" and associations with Ferran Andriá's El Bulli as that has always been a food Mecca for my father. Reviews seem to be very divided though?

Any help is gratefully recieved! Thanks.
