Our officiant is a family friend who lives in LA (we’re in Portland, OR). She specifically got ordained for us, is flying up for the wedding, and has been so great to me over the years!
I’m trying to think of a thank you she can take advantage of back home in LA. She’s 50-something, married, loves food and drink. I was thinking a gift card to a local restaurant? I’m not sure on her exact tastes so probably more standard, American/Italian/Mexican food.
Any favorites I should check out?

Does she actually reside in LA or a different city outside of LA?
Are you wanting something chainy or off beat? Casual or fancy?

@Jer72: She is actually in LA – I’d say not a chain, something more unique!

How much would you be getting the gift card for?
My husband grew up in LA and he is always taking me places down there. Were about an hour outside.

If I had to say 1 place it would be Lawrys in Beverly Hills.
It’s The Best!

Il Covo is a really lovely romantic Italian place with delicious food.
Osteria Mozza is Mario Bitalli’s restaraunt and one of the best reviewed in the city.
The Little Door is delicious and romantic (French)
Other places I really enjoy that are nice with delicious food:

Hm…my favorites in LA are:
-Asia De Cuba (@ the mondrian)
-Katana (Japanese tapas)
-Crustacean (Vietnamese Fusion) – in Beverly Hills = awesome
A GC to any of these would be very nice.

My vote goes to Son of A Gun, if she’s a foodie, she will appreciate it. We just went, and it was ridiculous! SO GOOD
