Vegetarian-friendly, unique to CA restaurant for 40th bday

rovingfoodie | Jul 13, 2016 04:57 AM

Hi all - I'm trying to pick a restaurant for my 40th birthday trip to LA in August and hoping Chowhound can help! My needs/wants are a little tricky:

Needs: excellent food; vegetarian/vegan friendly (I'm not vegetarian but my friends are); good for a group (but probably no more than 10 people); under $100 pp incl tax/tip/drinks (and preferably less); celebratory but relatively low-key atmosphere (ie not too casual, but also not looking for someplace noisy/clublike)

Wants: unique to LA/CA (I'll be coming from NYC) - high-end Mexican would be perfect, but I'm having trouble finding good recs. Or lots of local veggies/seafood?; relatively easy to get to from Silver Lake; nice view and/or neighborhood to wander around in before/after dinner; great cocktails/affordable wine list

So far Crossroads seems to be the best bet, but I'm open to any other suggestions (and to advice about how early I'll need to make a reservation) - thanks!
