Entertaining LA fashionistas in Philly..

I am planning a dinner next month for a group of fashion industry folks from LA, atmosphere is number 1 food would be number 2. Price not an issue and our group is staying at the Sofitel.
Being from LA as well all I know of is Buddakan, but that's the extent of my knowledge.
Also will probably looking for swank lounge type places after dinner.

Walked in around 9:30 last night and was able to procure a table..
Kevin H post is on the money for the most part.
I wish we would have had your server, our server STRONGLY recommended we order at least 8 dishes for each of us (total of 24), being it was our first visit we felt he was the expert so we followed his advice...SHAME ON US..3 hours and approximately $700 (including spirits, 3 per person) dollars later we felt exhausted
and duped. Courses flowed too slowly and many dishes tasted similar.
Overall most of the items were tasty and I don't have a problem with the decor (it works for a WEHO outpost).
I will return but now know better, the tasting menu is the way to go.
