“In every way”, from Ian Gresik’s “spectacular”, “traditional Italian food” backed by a “massive” and “excellent wine list” to the “elegant” midcentury-inspired room to the “unobtrusive” yet “attentive service”, this “sophisticated” pre-theater “go-to” and “Downtown scene” is “a star”; thanks to the “high-end” tabs, however, it’s perhaps best suited for “special occasions” and “power lunches” (a limited bar menu offers a “well-priced” but still “glamorous” alternative).

Review By: Zagat

Innovative takes on classic Italian recipes are offered in an elegant space with outdoor seating.

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar (Fine Dining)

“Superior” cuts of “brilliant” beef and an “excellent” wine selection bring fans to the Harbor East link of this “high-end” steakhouse chain; adding to the “wonderful experience” are “accommodating” servers who ably tend the “busy” dining room, with dark-wood decor and a “nice atmosphere.”

Review By: Zagat

Harold & Belle’s (Fine Dining)

You’d “have to drive to Louisiana to do better” than the “home cookin’” – think étouffée and gumbo – of this “old-school” Creole in Mid-City, where locals enjoy “humongous” portions and authentic “Southern hospitality” in a warm, comfortable space; regular jazz nights add luster, though some point to prices that are “steep” for what you get.

With white tablecloths & flowers, the eatery features Creole fare like gumbo & Southern hospitality.

Lala’s Argentine Grill  
7229 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA
90046

In a sense, Lala’s origins trace to 1988 when future owners Horacio Weschler Ferrari and Mario Balul moved to the United States. Both came to California with a commitment to their Argentinian culture, a profound appreciation for the United States, and a resolute desire to create something that fused the best of both worlds.

Horacio, who has an extensive restaurant background, met Mario, a trained architect, in 1990, and they quickly became close friends with many shared ambitions and interests. By 1995, they jointly conceptualized their future restaurant and set about the task of finding the right location and space to realize their vision. This vision combined their nostalgic memories of Argentinian dining savored in an unhurried and uniquely social fashion with the kind of reasonable prices and appealing setting that would encourage repeat business. In April of 1996, Lala’s opened its doors to an appreciative public.

Argentine-style meats plus salads & pastas served in a comfortable interior or on an outdoor patio.
