We are going to see Jay Leno and then a late night movie in Hollywood. We are looking for a restaurant (mid range to higher is ok) for dinner. We want one with a LA Vibe
For example, we like sashimi and sushi and love going to Geisha House in Hollywood. We've also had the tasters menu at Providence (wonderful).
We also like the Village Idiot on Melrose, but recently we have found the food not as good as before.
We would appreciate advise on a new restaurant in LA with a local vibe. We like all kinds of food, but would prefer a place that has some type of LA vibe (not a place you would find for example in San Francisco.)
its one of the reasons we like Geisha House as its got a different feel than our restaurants here.
We've been to Yamashiro and the views are wonderful - but for us that is a bit too touristy. If possible, we would like to try a newer restaurant with an LA/Hollywood vibe open on a Monday.
All suggestions are definitely appreciated (and if we do not go this time we will save for our next trip if several great suggestions).
