Farm to table restaurants

Thank you both so much. I am trying to stay on my diet for this vacation, and I thought the most delicious way to do this was to take advantage of the great CA produce!

Farm to table restaurants

I hope this doesn't sound too naive, but as an Easterner about to take my first LA trip, I was hoping to get ideas for great farm-to-table restaurants. Out here, they're fairly rare, but I'm sure in CA they're everywhere.

Would love some suggestions within about 20 minutes of Burbank, if possible.

Thanks!

i Ricchi or Kinkead's for Sunday dinner meeting?

I'm back again and I appreciate all your suggestions. Blue Duck, Westend and Firefly are the ones mentioned positively by several people and they seem wonderful, but I'm trying to keep the price down. What do you think of Tiramisu or Tabard Inn? Again, it's for a business dinner and needs to be fairly quiet. Thanks so much!

No- it's a business dinner meeting-- that's why I need a place that's quiet.

Thank you so much for all your great suggestions. I would love to try Blue Duck and Westend sometime, but they are very expensive. Any slightly less expensive options? Again, my requirements are fairly near Dupont Circle, and not noisy-- and of course, good food! Thanks for bearing with me!

Thanks for all your advice! Spezie seems really good, but I've heard comments about the acoustics. That would be a deal-breaker. Has anyone had that problem?

I don't know DC restaurants well, but these two were suggested for a Sunday evening meeting of 4 people. We need to be pretty close to Dupont Circle.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

Looking for restaurant for dinner meeting for 7 under $20/person

We are having a meeting over dinner in Baltimore. We're trying to cut our expenses, so we need to stay under $20/person. We either need a small private room or a fairly quiet restaurant. Good food. Any ideas? Thanks!
