This lovely space run by husband-and-wife team Neal (chef) and Amy Knoll Fraser is one of the best restaurants in town. High ceilings, well-spaced tables, and soothing earth tones evoke a relaxed atmosphere. The menu changes regularly but you might find a roast beet salad with grilled radicchio and onion marmalade, pumpkin risotto with sea urchin and sweet Maine shrimp, and a beautiful plate of foie gras served both as a pâté and sautéed with pistachio-cocoa nib crust and a dab of huckleberry compote. Entrees include generous servings of wild-boar tenderloin with violet mustard sauce, and slow-braised pork shank with smoked shallots and cider-sage sauce. The coup de grâce of our unrivaled meal was a sublime warm Cajeta bread pudding topped with pumpkin-seed ice cream. Yes, it's expensive, but if you're going to splurge on a meal in L.A., Grace is where I'd go.
