I will be in LA for two nights - a Monday and Tuesday - and will have the rare opportunity for a solo dinner of my choosing both nights.
What would you recommend for two only-in-LA food experiences?
On my most recent trip to LA, I had a great meal at Javan, thanks to the rec's of chowhounds! I have also had some great meals at Nobu, Campanile, and even C&O Trattoria. My tastes are pretty wide-ranging, and although we have myriad choices here in Chicago, I'm looking for something that is unique to LA.
If it helps narrow your recommendations, I will be working in West LA off the 405 and staying at the W in Westwood, although Tuesday night I will be heading to LAX to catch the red-eye back to Chicago... will have a rental car the entire time.
