Mexican and Good Margaritas In LA

I was to Border in downtown and though the margarita was very good, the fish taco was a bit fishy. Not so great.

Mexican and Good Margaritas In LA

Hi all,

I'm heading to CA for Christmas and would like some recommendations for Mexican joints that have great food and stellar margaritas -- places that are a manageable drive from LAX. I made a reservation at Petty Cash, but am rethinking based on reviews I see here. I like all fresh ingredients and my idea of a great margarita is something close to the celery-serrano margarita served at Jade Bar in Scottsdale, AZ. Would El Carmen be a good choice? Other suggestions?

I must disagree about Dressler. Based on good reviews from this board, I ventured there for an early Friday dinner. Made reservations. I was served the cocktail I ordered, but then my waitress completely ignored me as she waited on the table next to me, brought bread to that table, etc. She approached my table once to ask if I wanted a second cocktail, but spent most of her time loitering around with the bored wait staff. I paid for the cocktail and left.

While strolling around Williamsburg, I happened upon a fabulous tapas bar and restaurant, Cadaques Tapas Bar. Had an amazing tomato tasting menu. Service and food get a thumbs up.

authentic (nonchain) Mexican food in Knoxville?

Try El Noa Noa Mexican Market and Cafe. Excellent tacos.

Asheville on a Sunday Evening

Need recommendations for Sunday dinner in Asheville, NC. I like farm to table cuisine and will be dining solo. A quiet, nice place to sit, read a book and enjoy glass of wine and gourmet eats. Suggestions or is everything worth trying closed on Sunday evening?

Traveling to Bethel area on business. Need some suggestions for good breakfast, lunch and dinner joints. Don't mind casual, but do mind bad food. Would love to know where the locals go and love. And places a foodie might recommend.

Atlanta Dinner Before Concert


Heading to Atlanta for concert at Philips Arena and want to dine out beforehand. I seek a restaurant that will be one of those memorable "Oh my word" dining experiences. Transplant from NYC here, and haven't had a good dining experience since moving South. Help! Is Woodfire Grill any good? I've read that that's a pretty serious farm-to-table spot.

Knoxville's Best

Moved here from NY a little over a year ago. I have discovered a few gems:


Dancing Bear Lodge

Nama or Wasabi for sushi

Gourmet's Market for lunch

Pups or Melrose Station for best BBQ

Sitar - pretty good Indian

Have not found any good Italian. Tomato Head is okay for pizza.

Looking forward to trying Echo and Foothills.
