My cousin just moved to L.A. after graduating college. I am taking him to dinner and looking for a nice and delicious restaurant in/near Hollywood or Beverly Hills. I dont mind spending money but dont want to spend much more than $40 a person before drinks and dessert. I am looking for something that' seems like L.A. but not trying too hard and not too loud.
A few ideas
BLD (menu looks great but is it too loud?)
Dakota at Hollywood Roosevelt
