Has anyone found papalo in the San Fernando Valley?

Check Northgate Markets http://www.northgatemarkets.com/ (but I do think the summer months are the season for these)

Why does baguette s*ck in this country...

"...added butter/jam. Even better tasting."

What doesn't butter & jam improve? (j/k - sort of...)

LA Weekly 20 Best Restaurants in LA. I know "Not another list"

"Lord knows Langer's is my favorite restaurant in the city, but even so I would not put it on a list with Providence, Melisse, etc."

I think that's why I always like J Gold's "essential" list. A good word that allows the Langer's to be lumped in with the Melisse's of the world.

Late solo dinner near MDR

Don't forget Santino's http://santinosrestaurants.com/ in Venice if you are stuck for late night eats in that area (at least on Fridays and Saturdays).

Do you wonder why the Chow site stinks?

Sometimes for fun I run the same search through Bing...just to see what the results look like from that engine.

Grimaldi's Pizza in El Segundo Review:

Was that quote a vote against Grimaldi's on your part? I wasn't sure what you meant. (Or was it just a shout out to DiGiorno?)

Suggestions for day in LA with 3 year old

They said they were planning a possible lunch at Spago, so that meant they were probably done with the park the day before and were checking out of the hotel and heading north for lunch somewhere in the LA area.

Suggestions for day in LA with 3 year old

My thought was, since the OP talked about perhaps going to Spago for lunch, was that they would come up the 5 freeway from Disneyland and then on to the 10, so would be passing downtown on the way to the Beverly Hills area.

I think I said this elsewhere on the thread but I don't believe a public company can just let an asset die a premature death. I think they would have to try and sell it first as they have a duty to their shareholders to maximize profit (or at least minimize loss).

"...allowing the likes of YOU in there."

lol...I'm a dedicated Marxist when it comes to matters such as this...Groucho Marx that is...and his oft quoted telegram that goes:

PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION.
I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB
THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER.

I think ns1 meant they redacted their own post for being too snarky of a reply to you about this thread in general.

Any Hound Reports @ Jose Chiquito at the Grand Central Market?

Thanks, Dommy. It looked interesting. GCM is really going to become a destination over time.

are bucato, factory kitchen, tasting kitchen and osteria mozza doing the most interesting pasta dishes? and how would you rank/compare them?

Agree with your points about both the pastas and the bread and butter at Tasting Kitchen.

Evidently they think that good food news will travel by word of mouth...

Any Hound Reports @ Jose Chiquito at the Grand Central Market?

So far I see a few Yelp reports http://www.yelp.com/biz/jose-chiquito... but wonder if any of you "downtown hounds" have sampled this place yet?

Don't know the factoids on any of your questions but I have a feeling that "taking over Chow" is how you can make a small fortune out of a big one...

For those who want to eat in and have their pizza fresh and hot vs those who take it home and try to recreate what was, and will never be again...or not.

Bezian Bakery http://www.bezianbakery.com/ does the Wednesday SM Farmers Market and look like a likely suspect for your bread hunt. While there are no photos you can read some Yelp reviews here http://www.yelp.com/biz/bezian-bakery...

Suggestions for day in LA with 3 year old

While suggestions of things to do with your 3 year old are usually outside the mandate of this site I would suggest you look to a stop in downtown LA for the offerings at lunch at the newly revamping Grand Central Market (GCM) http://www.grandcentralmarket.com/ or perhaps at the permanent Original Farmers Market http://www.farmersmarketla.com/ near West Hollywood.

Burgers at Belcampo http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/970281 if you do the GCM would be a good idea or take a look at eggslut http://www.eggslut.com/ and if you do the Farmers Market you will be near Son of a Gun http://sonofagunrestaurant.com/ along with many other possibilities.

Good news about M&O expanding into the next door space. That might mean we will actually go and eat in sometime, rather than doing take out only.

Since CBS is a publicly held company with shareholders that they report to they would need to sell the the CH site, should it come to that.

Have you checked out either of the Santa Monica Farmers Markets http://www.smgov.net/portals/farmersmarket/ or the Brentwood Farmers Market http://www.ccfm.com/ccfm/brentwood-farmers-market for bread by any chance? What about Vicente Foods http://vicentefoods.com/ on San Vicente at Bundy? They might be a good source. And the new Bristol Farms http://www.bristolfarms.com/locations... on Wilshire got quite a few good reviews here when it opened.
