Best French dinner in LA?

I guess it depends on what you mean by french? Melisse is more Cal/French, but it is awesome!

Weekday lunch - Unique atmosphere - LA

I was going to mention Inn of the 7th Ray as well. The food may not be exciting but great location! Def quietly impressive and you can have a nice conversation. Just keep track of the weather if you are going to sit outside (as you should)

Homegirl Cafe

I've never been, but Mom's is a fan of the chilaquiles for b'fast and she is pretty picky when it comes to Mexican food.

Beautiful and Spacious Chinese Buffet Opens Up--Near MacArthur Park

Now that Mr. Tasterâ„¢ is gone, can we please discuss Gjusta?

I think that is exactly the point! Maybe I mentioned this in another thread, but most of the food is not meant to be eaten there from what I can tell (with the exception of the espresso). It's food to be eaten at home or for a great picnic. Don't think it's an accident/mistake that there is not much seating

I had the build your own smoked salmon sandwich on a dense northern european style bread, lebneh spread, pickled stuff... woow! super good. Espresso drinks about the same quality as Superba F&B (very good)

L.A. Dish of the Month, February 2015 -- BURGERS

Thanks for the link! I am in that area a lot and couldn't figure out where it was.

New School Kitchen Brings Dim Sum To The Sawtelle Corridor (Well Sort Of)

Better you posting than me! I went on monday quite by accident not realizing that Kiriko was not open for lunch. They were offering a discount for soft opening. I tried the siu mai, BBQ Pork bun and Curry Bun. IMO the quality is okay if you eat it right away just doesn't make for a filling lunch. Seating is on a couple 2 tops al fresco in front of the shop shared with a couple other places.

ISO Best Omurice

Hit up jist for a late b'fast. I like it, really good stumptown coffee. Chashu potatoes were a bit too sweet but very addicting. The Omurice was good, but I just kept thinking about the fried rice at Men Oh Ramen around the corner. It did satisfy the craving though.

I'll def be back.

Planning an eating trip, need some input (Japanese, Korean, fine dining, Taiwanese, regional Chinese, Vietnamese, coffee, raw oysters etc)

Just an FYI, the SM FM is the best in town but doesn't have nearly as many options as Hollywood FM for walking around munchies.

If you do go to H FM -Get there early! it can get crowded.

ISO Best Omurice

Mmm Zombie's like Omurice ;)

Who has the best Omurice around these days? I know JiST has one any other more old fashioned versions around? e.g. ketchup chicken fried rice, soft-set omelet.. A quick google search mostly brings up a closed restaurant in Korea Town (Curry Hyang).

Friends visiting from England and Italy- where to eat?

Larry's in Venice should hit the spot. Right on the beach, Nice beer/wine selection affordable and options for all.

Sushi Tsujita Serving Lunch 7 Days a Week (A Photo Story)

Had the 38$ lunch today. I was really impressed, it is a nice variety of tempatures and textures starting off with a white fish that had been fried and pickled as well as the chawanmushi (chicken and enoki). Fantastic knife work on the fish, really brought out the texture of each one highlights being the Japanese and King mackerel, I am not much of an uni or salmon egg fan generally but the tea cup of rice topped with both was good (uni being lightly briny and buttery). The miso soup was the best I have had in a long long time.

The hubbub is a nostalgia thing (not that, that is a bad thing) before the current focus on the perfect crust and artisinal toppings. Just a really good Italian-American Pie

Westside restaurant where you can watch the Oscars?

Can't think of anyplace restaurant or bar that does the Oscars on TV. Typically the places that have tv's and have sound up are sports bars.

All New Menu at A-Frame - Roy Choi Goes Hawaiian

Lol, as far as I know RC does not specialize in tiny food with lot's of foam ;) Doubt that will be a problem.

I am interested to hear your opinion on Johnny Yoo's new menu (from the article it sounds like Roy is mentoring the new Chef and it's his menu)
