To all, thank you for the comments. I went and checked the map and did see that Redondo Beach is a bit farther from LA and Bev Hills than I anticipated. We will probably go into the city in the afternoon and then head to dinner straight from there to avoid missing our reservation.
We have no particular food that we want to try, just want a memorable experience! I haven't heard of Melisse - I'll check that out!
Ken, not super familiar with the area but will be staying in a hotel at Redondo Beach (a suburb of LA, I think?) and travel to where ever in L.A. or Beverly Hills for dinner. Is WP24 Wylie Dufresne's restaurant?
