Since 1982, Spago has managed to hold its spot as one of the busiest and most celebrated LA restaurants. Sure, there’s a ton of air-kissing and people-watching, but the seasonally-focused food succeeds thanks to fresh produce, meat, and fish that’s done simply and well (the beet layer salad is always a highlight). It’s the kind of place that’s justified by a special occasion, and there are plenty of private room options for large parties.
