Couple of L.A. foodies need help

Howdy....Early September, we two big time foodies from L.A. are arriving for 2 nights. One of our dinners is going to be at the Metropolitan Grill for some great steaks. Where would you have us go, for a great dinner the other night? Cost is not a factor, nor is cuisine, just great food....Thanks!

Foodies from L.A, need help in Lake Tahoe

Typically we eat a largeish breakfast and dinner, then dessert. Lunch is not something we do. That said, breakfast ideas would be appreciated too. We love pastries and/or donuts with great coffee.

Thanks for responding. Looks like Jimmy's and Evans will be 2 of our four nights. Still deciding on the other two.

Wow...such a wealth of knowledge. I will do some research on your suggestions. Glad to hear the restaurant in our hotel is worth going to.

Thanks so much for responding. We are staying at the new hotel called The Landing. Really excited to try it. I will look over the thread you included.

South side, but we have a car. I have "sort" of looked on the site, but it's all so confusing.

Header says it all, but we 2 foodies will be in Lake Tahoe and need some recommendations for our 4 night stay. Open to anything great, money not an important factor. Thanks in advance.

Maude reservation

Perhaps I am one of the lucky ones. I've gone 3 times now and each time, I've spent about 30 minutes re-dialing and made contact each time. I know it's a lot to put up with. Trust me, it's worth it. A wonderful evening!

Tipple and Brine...has anyone eaten there?

There were just the 2 of us. Chef's choice of oysters (12 for $34), 2 cocktails each and we shared the uni on toast (meh) Cauliflower (which was the highlight by far, really yummy) and roast chicken, not great. With T and T around $150.

Had dinner there last week. To me, I'd rather spend the $150 or so elsewhere. Way too much money for this type of meal. Not bad, just not worth it.

Maude in Beverly Hills. Any early reports?

You just nailed my exact sentiment. I too, attended the artichoke meal. Without explanations, I would not have known what the theme was. That being said, it didn't matter, as the food was fantastic regardless.

Maude in Beverly Hills. Any early reports?

I agree with you...It's not fun. I called both with my land line (which is slow to re-dial) and also my cell, which ended up being the winner. Must be a "better" way!

Maude in Beverly Hills. Any early reports?

I called today to Maude, beginning at 10:00am. At 10:15 I got through and made my Rhubarb reservation for May. Yah! This will be my second visit. I doubt that it will be this easy every month, though

Vintage Enoteca

Went last night. http://vintageenoteca.com/

It is a wine bar with small plates of delicious foods. I can see why you think it's called Vino. Anyways, lovely meal. Shared all. Blue Crab, chicken liver pate and hummus Bruschetta. Moved on to Salmon Tartar followed by Cauliflower Gratin, Brussels-bacon-truffle flatbread and lastly a roasted beet salad with homemade ricotta. We shared a wonderful bottle of Chardonnay. Would I return, yes....

Yotsuya anyone?

Thanks Kevin...I've been to many of the top sushi restaurants in our fair city and Zo in West L.A. included. I didn't care of the service or attitude there, but have yet to try his new one in DTLA.

Yotsuya anyone?

We took the leap last night, and gave Yotsuya a try. Arrived for our 7:30 reservation on time. We were the only 2 in the restaurant from start to finish. Masa seemed to have a cold, but mentioned his allergies were acting up. Oh well....anyways, we entrusted him to our meal. Without counting, probably a dozen or so sushi items. Very straight forward, with no rolls and such. A couple of the fishes were new to me, but quite tasty. In fact all were quite tasty. Damage for the omakase along with 3 medium size bottles of sake shared between the 2 of us was $275 included tip. Would I return, maybe.

Yotsuya anyone?

Thinking of branching out from my sushi rut and trying something new. Has anyone been lately? Thanks!

Sol Y Luna

So we did end up here last night. The "skinny" margarita, albeit strong on lime flavor, actually had a nice kick of tequila. Hubs and I ordered the fish tacos. Not nearly as good as I remembered them to be. Re-fried beans were very thin an un-appealing. The table side guac was the evenings saving grace. Very well made. Would I return, probably not.
