Lukshon vs Akasha - Culver City

I have been to both.. Lukshon has much better food.. I just love this place.. it is more expensive than Akasha, but worth every penny.

Providence full tasting vs Melisse 10 course anniversary

Tough choice.. I would give the edge to Providence.. What a great menu.. Michael C the chef is flawless..

Help: Melisse or Hatfields?

I would do the Melisse Carte Blanche menu.. I have been to both Hatfields and Melisse several times.. Hatfields, though good, is not in the same class as Melisse...

Anniversary dinner . . . Providence or Mozza

Mozza is good.. but I agree with the comment below ,it is not is the same class as Providence. Providence is one of the top resturants in LA and my clear favorite. great food.

Crunchy chicken wings?

the way to get very crunchy chicken wings is to wash, then coat with flour... put in the refrigerater over night. the flour on the wings will turn into a paste.. then fry at 350 for 15 minutes. I have also dried the wings in the frige overnight.. I think the best way is the flour coating.
