Hi all - My wife and I are coming down to LA from Vancouver at the end of July. I'm looking for a couple of good dinner rec's in LA and Santa Barbara.

We ate at Craft years ago and loved it. Still good?

We are in our late 30s and tend to go for fun, lively spots with excellent food. We are pretty open to cuisine type with lots of love for Italian, French, sushi, farm to table.

Also, is there any good lounge near West LA where I can hang out and smoke a cigar? Sadly, this is is not a possibility in Vancouver!

Thank you!
