Fogo De Chao: Brazilian churrascaria
I heard of Fogo De Chao a long time ago but it wasnt until recently that I was able to go. First of all I love steak. I am a big meat eatter so i tend to really like churrascarias. This place is more on the high end of churrascarias thats for sure. The place is very classy, and very sofisticatedly decorated. The service is impecable, you dont really have just one waiter or waitress, they all take care of you. Their main objective is that you are happy, content and full! They also have an extensive wine list from all over the world.
First we went to the salad bar. it consisted of green salads, fruit salads, potato salads and veggies. then when you get to your table it all begins.. one after another they start bringing you top sirloin, garlic steak, sausages, chicken, ribs, picanha, ranch skirt steak and other types of steak until you can no longer look at any more steak again.
They also ask you if you would like the piece weel done, medium or whatever you like. They will also bring you mashed pototes (garlic) and fried plantains, and bread and all this is also all you can eat as well. When you are all done with this they will bring out a dessert menu. We got the creme brule which was excellent! and a glass of congac to wash it all down.
Favorite Dish: Everything was good, but we have to be a steak lover top really appreciate this place.

North of Wilshire vs South of Wilshire
"Must See" High end restaurants that will not disappoint - Spago - Trader Vic's - Daily Grill - Bev Hills Hotel Polo Lounge - Penninsula
The Wilshire Boulevard divide - generally, restaurants south of Wilshie Boulevard will be less expensive - a good variety of both will be found on South Beverly Drive - CA Pizza Kitchen for sidewalk people watching w/moderate prices.

The Ivy: The Ivy
If you enjoy rubbing elbows with celebrities and the rich and famous this is the restaurant for you. You are more than likely to encounter a celebrity, especially at lunchtime. Although the food is good, but way too expensive.
A great restaurant that is known well in the area as a "hot" spot. Typical LA and Beverly Hills types who drive beautiful cars to match their beautiful bodies. It's all about the glam! There's a river that runs throughout the whole place, underneath clear glass. There's little bridges too!
Favorite Dish: This Vietnamese restaurant has lots of your typical Vietnamese foods with a Californian twist. There's always Dungenness crab that's very tasty. The chilean sea bass in ginger citrus sauce is DELICIOUS!!! It just melts in your mouth! The appetizer rolls in rice paper are tremendous as well!
Crustacean: Order from the Secret Kitchen!
Outstanding Vientamese food! While overpriced, the food is very, very good. The decor is also quite imaginative - glass covered koi pond that you walk over as you enter the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Garlic noodles with prawns (from the "Secret Kitchen). The garlic sauce is so addictive you will come back just for it alone. The giant prawns are de-shelled right in front of you and it is, by far, their best dish.
Mr. Chows: Overpriced but plenty of stars
A crowded and very popular chinese/asian restaurant that is very popular with celebrities so you are certain to spot "someone." The portions are not big and the food is somewhat overpriced. Food is served family style.
Favorite Dish: Ma Mignon. Filet served for two that is sliced and served with a delicious sauce. Also, the spicey prawns are quite good.
The amount of restaurants to...
The amount of restaurants to chose from is immense!!! so many great restaurants to go to, you won't go hungry, but bring lots of money, prepare yourself for a fabulous meal.... and duck the paparazzi on the way out :o)
Within some of my favorites I'd have to count:
Spago Beverly Hills, Barney Greengrass, Ginza Sushiko (no glitz, no glamour; just a modest sushi chef serving the most expensive morsels in town!!!!!), and Regent Beverly Wilshire.
Mr. Chow: Mr. Chow
I've been here a couple of times for lunch, and just about every time, I've seen a celebrity or two.
So if you're coming to LA to see some stars, here's a place to try and it has good upscale Chinese food.
Favorite Dish: Just about everything.
Maple Drive: Maple Drive
Great food with an ambience and service to match! The decor is minimalist with recessed lighting and clean lines. Great happy hour with free appetizers! Good after work crowd.
It goes without saying that...
It goes without saying that Expensive 5 star restrunts are in Beverly Hills. I ate in a Planet Hollywood. Food was not great but the Atmospher was good.
Lots of Hollywood Memorbilia.
