Why does Ralph's send me coupons for items that don't have?

Once I spent a long time searching for some flat bread they sent a coupon for. But it was hidden away in the freezer section.

Will he rely more on his scouts? Or will he discount the service he gets in writing a review?

Help Please! A week in LA to dine!

Mastro's is pleasant and competent and--depending on who you are with--cool, but no great shakes.

Is there anywhere to have a nice dinner in downtown LA?

Good point. I don't have the noise answers.

Well, filtering out the morose attitude, how about Pacific Dining Car? And to be honest, compared to some other areas (SF, NYC, Chicago) food in LA (even when it's expensive) is generally a bargain.

From Wiki:

"From the 1970s on, Taiwanese immigrants begin settling in Monterey Park and the nearby communities of Alhambra, and Rosemead. The area was not too far from the Los Angeles Chinatown commercial area and was becoming a Chinese influenced community.[12] This trend included affluent Chinese professionals, mostly from Taiwan. At that time, Monterey Park was being marketed by realtors in Taiwan and Hong Kong as the 'Chinese Beverly Hills,' to entice future investors."

I am not sure if anyone who wasn't white was allowed to buy in SM in the early 80s.

No, MP was promoted as the BH of the SGV.

Farmers Ranch Market Closed

I get amused by the folks shucking corn in the corner at SK. Then, I do it.

Redbird (Downtown)

Menu as posted by Melanie D. is hard to make out but looks high end. And they add the 3% health insurance charge, I think. But reviews are very good on Yelp.

8 foodies from Asia -- DTLA rec?

Went to a Christmas luncheon there last year. Service was very spotty. As for good cocktails, they can be found upstairs at Seven Grand.

Sounds like you would either order off menu or go to Alhambra for those tastes.

Cafeterias in LA?

There's also one at the Cathedral downtown, but I like Lemonade better.
