    I took my daughter and two of her friends to California (from NY) in lieu of a Sweet Sixteen. Dash was on her to do list. After reading some of the reviews, I was a little worried that they would be disappointed.\r We walked in and were immediately greeted by a friendly staff member. Kourtney was there but was busy trying on clothes. We shopped for a while and bought an adorable dress and a pair of pants that were different than anything I've seen in other stores. There was a sale going on so the prices weren't too obscene - boutique prices definitely. The staff was attentive but not at all pushy. When we finished making our purchases, we politely asked Kourtney if she wouldn't mind taking a photo with the girls. She graciously agreed and was VERY friendly and chatted with the girls. They were thrilled with both the boutique and Kourtney Kardashian.

    My 16 year old daughter opted for a trip to California (from NY) instead of a party. Spago was on her ""Bucket List."" After looking at the menu on line, I thought she would be disappointed. I was WRONG! I took her and two of her friends to dinner. They had NO problem choosing appetizers and dinner! One of her friends is in cooking school and was mesmerized by the view into the kitchen! The staff could not have been friendlier! The highlight of the evening was, of course, when Wolfgang Puck came over to the table and introduced himself and chatted with the girls. He graciously took a photo with them as well.\r \r As for the food...I had the artichoke soup and it was beyond delicious! I can honestly say...I have never tasted anything quite like it! It is a MUST have! The girls all had the risotto - my favorite - and it was outstanding! You could definitely taste the wood fired brick oven! For an entree, we had the duck - very, very good!! - the salmon - excellent! But...by far, the best was the chicken with black truffles!\r \r We shared the cookies for dessert and they were beyond incredible! I was worried that the restaurant wouldn't live up to our expectations but it exceeded them! DEFINITELY worth the trip! And...btw...it was the best $$$ we spent for a meal in California! Worth every penny!
