Asian fare, this side of the Atlantic? Yes, you'll be served just that at Buddha's Belly, which is located in a posh neighborhood of Los Angeles. The airy dining rooms with a Buddha (whose belly you can rub for good luck!) and bamboo shoots for good fortune cheer you up instantaneously. Pick from a large variety of Pan-Asian dishes that will tantalize your palates—you can even sample the chef's favorite recipes. An open display kitchen shows you what is cooking, so that you can work up an appetite while you watch.
