Dining like a whale starts with a restaurant catered to those willing spend. Los Angeles doesn't quite have as many high-end restaurants as cities such as Chicago, New York, Paris or London, but it does make up in its own unique breadth of pricey places that won't necessarily break the bank on a good day. That means that while expensive, these restaurants are perfectly attainable for special occasions or for semi-regular splurges after bonuses or even tax returns. These restaurants range from ultra-luxurious omakase sushi experiences to multi-course tasting menus to celebrity magnets. In celebration of Whale Week, Eater presents an updated guide to the Most Expensive Restaurants in Los Angeles.
