Fun upbeat restaurants in Beverly Hills?

Visiting BH without a car, so looking for cool places we can walk or take hotel car. Prefer vibrant scene ... or may travel further for a really cool scene elsewhere. Thx!

Ledoyen, Le Cinq or Taillevent for Lunch?

... did I miss or forget something?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Kathryn ... agree it is perfect to a T yet we also go frequently ... I'll see if the group is up for North End Grill or Al Fiori yet hoped to find something trending right now just like them yet new ...

Jaded Manhattanite Looking for "new" fine dining restaurant

Great suggestions all! Yes, now that I think of it, Ai Fiori strikes that hard-to-find balance between excellent cuisine and a hip feel.

Also for everyone North End Grill FABULOUS. Tempted yet a bit far downtown. That would be my fav restaurant if it was midtown.

Jaded Manhattanite Looking for "new" fine dining restaurant

Thanks! Price is not a factor ... at times Restaurant Daniel can be "stiff" so a slightly more lively atmosphere preferred ... we need to be able to converse, yet as stated, a "good buzz."

Some of the more popular top rated restaurants (ABC Kitchen, etc) have good food and a buzz, yet prefer a more formal (yet not 'dead') atmosphere.

Thanks again.

Jaded Manhattanite Looking for "new" fine dining restaurant

Hello everyone - I've been asked to make a reservation for a party of four and admit to being guilty guilty guilty of always going to my regular favs (Jean-Georges, Restaurant Daniel).

Yes I've been to Eleven Madison Park. It was fine yet been there a few times now. Also Nomad.

Not sure extreme drama is required ... we were at Marea last year and liked the vibe and the food. The table could converse yet a pleasant buzz outside our table was welcome.

Thinking of Gilt ... yet other suggestions are welcome!

Help! Need fabulous lunch recommendation in paris this afternoon

Hello - we are leaving Beaune for Paris today before taking a plane to Italy at 5.

We hope to have lunch in a fabulous restaurant sharply at noon - right now, we are set to drive to the champs elysee and walk around before lunch, but a good lunch recommendation is fine - we can switch our plans.

We are open - prefer michelin and fab cuisine.

As I will be driving, a recommendation copied to email would be so appreciated. You can use expert@deg.com

Thanks so much

Sunday lunch (today) in Paris

Need to be at the airport at 2:30 so an 11:30/12 start is great.

I will look into Le Cinq at four seasons yet I believe the start too late at 12:30

will also look into start time of Le Meurice.

Our luggage may present a problem for some non hotel restaurants ...

However we are staying at Le Grand Hotel so something nearby might be an option as we can leave luggage here ...

Fine Paris Restaurants for weekend lunch and dinner

We will be spending two consecutive restaurants in Paris and need recommendations for four fine (michelin rated) lunches on weekends (important to note it is a weekend) and four dinners.

They do not all have to be michelin -- a good scene is fun too. We liked Avenue yet it was a bit busy ...

Thanks in advance! Off to Europe tomorrow, will check the board1

Hostess gift for winery owners/negotiants

I have been invited to dinner by a negociant in France and will also be staying as a guest in different chateaux.

Can anyone suggest a small, packable non-wine gift? Thanks in advance!

Fine Dining & FUN London restaurants this Sunday/Monday Feb 28/March1

Sorry! "lively" "people watching" "energy"

It is very difficult to find very innovative, 'celebrity chef' cuisine and a fun scene. Perhaps the reason we eat at Nobu all the time in London, because formal restaurants with fabulous food are boring, and "lively" restaurants with a scene are uncomfortable and the food isn't the point.

In Manhattan, Cafe Boulud (Daniel Boulud) could be a good example if the clientele was a bit younger and more exciting. Still, there is always a "buzz"

I like Wolseley but go there too often as well. Someone suggested the sushi bar Roka (sp?)

Fine Dining & FUN London restaurants this Sunday/Monday Feb 28/March1

It's been Nobu Nobu Nobu every single (frequent) visit to London because nothing else "fun" is happening on these nights.

Recommendations would be so appreciated!
