I am thinking about trying interesting food places in the Los Angeles Area: one place a week (mostly on weekends) with up to 30-40 dollars per person for the food. I am not looking for the absolute best food but for a variety of really interesting and unusual eating experiences. By interesting I mean anything that is different from being served food on plates. E.g. I consider a Sunday brunch buffet, cheese fondue, Japanese BBQ (where one grills one's own food at the table), and so on, to be interesting and unusual. I am also interested in unusual food. I am looking for suggestions where to go in the next couple of weeks. Please help!
