A friend from out of town and I are looking to have a fancy celebratory dinner and possibly also lunch. We’d like excellent food and an elegant atmosphere where other people will be dressed up too. Budget goes up to $150 each for dinner. We’d prefer Westside/Beverly Hills, but are open to anywhere.
When I started thinking of restaurants I realized that everywhere that came to mind was the place to be a long time ago (Spago, Patina, Chinois, etc) so what would be a good place to go now? Or are the oldies still the best?
(Yes, it’s the same friend from the other post, the one who likes ube ice cream.)
