Where to find Apple Cider mix in LA?

i just bought williams sonoma's apple cider concentrate yesterday and tried it last night. I added a cinnamon stick to it and it was lovely. However, it's quite pricey - $19 for a bottle that makes a gallon.

Thanks for all the input. I think I may keep my reservation and just see how it is. I'm definitely reserving for the Peninsula soon.

Next time I am definitely making my reservation at the Peninsula a month in advance!

I just found out that Barney's Greengrass restaurant can accomodate my party as well. How is it there? That leaves me with these 2 options: Hotel Bel-Air or Greengrass?

Opinions? I also have friends coming in from San Francisco. So I want to show them a good time as well.

Thank you!

Westside Italian

How about C&O Trattoria in Marina Del Rey? That's casual. For something less casual I would try Madeo's (weho) or La Dolce Vita (bh).

Thanks! I actually am on the waitlist for the Peninsula ( I read some amazing reviews). But seems like it will be a long shot since I was told that there are 10 parties waitlisted before me!

Hotel Bel-Air - Afternoon Tea (Holiday)

Hey guys,

I will be celebrating my birthday and I've always wanted to do a ladies' afternoon tea ( I never have). I didn't realize how fast these places book up! I was able to snag a reservation at Hotel Bel-Air although I have read some bad user reviews about it on Trip Advisor and CitySearch websites. Can anyone elaborate on the afternoon tea experience at Hotel Bel-Air? Would it be better to save the $55/ person and do a nice lunch somewhere else?

I appreciate any input.

Thanks!
