CFX's Solver Modeling Guide states the following

"The mesh and timesteps are an inherent part of the model. LES models make use of the grid scale for filtering out the turbulence. If the mesh is anisotropic to resolve a jet, for example, the longer length scale in the flow direction may also have an undue effect on the cross-stream turbulence. For this reason, consider the use of isotropic grids, perhaps using tetrahedral rather than hexahedral elements."

"If the boundary layer structure is important, you should resolve it with at least 15 points across the boundary layer and with the first grid point at a position of approximately y+ = 1. Note however, that large aspect rations in the mesh are not suitable for LES. This often results in excessive resolution requirements for boundary layer flows."

I was hoping that there would be references but I did not see any. Perhaps these couple of paragraphs will help. Good luck!
