Eating/parking in Inglewood

We do this a lot.
-- Orleans and York Deli on Florence has plenty of street parking to leave a car

--Three Weavers Brewing (bring your own pick-nick or grab Jamaican from Derricks)

-- Coni's Seafood (bring your own beer/margaritas)

-- MB post, Little Sister, or something else in Manhattan Beach

Westside Tacos

Very, very good place.
Carnitas are great.

So is the ridiculously inexpensive chicken or pescado soup.
Or the ridiculously hot shrimp diablo.
Or the ridiculously free stewed beans (in the soup warmer next to salsa stand).

LA Vacation in July - Critique my choices!

I have to respectfully disagree with the Chinois rec. For me it is becoming like Lawry's - interesting only for nostalgic purposes. The food is very, very tired and has been copied in every town with more than one restuarant. I would not recommend it to an out of towner.

Petit Trois last night

I think it said Petit Mec earlier - or I just read it wrong. Carry on.

I would skip A-Frame, if you feel the need to be Roy Choi'd try POT in K-Town. Also look into St Martha for your Eastside adventures, really amazing, getting better and better with time. Luv2Eat Thai Bistro is a still undiscovered gem http://www.yelp.com/biz/luv2eat-thai-...

Mexican - lots of good but nothing great in SaMo. If it has to be SaMo Tacos Puntas Cabras or Tacomeindo are solid.

Tsujita Artisan Noodles is the best of Sawtelle.

I was wondering about this place recently while drinking the great beers at Three Weavers Brewing Co. Seems like the perfect place to get food and bring over to Three Weavers.

Lunch in Venice area....?

J.L., have you been back lately to Status Kuo? I went once for a late lunch and enjoyed it quite a bit. But since then I have heard form a few folks that it has gone downhill, fast.

Help w/ Pot

can't answer that
two completely different experiences

I would not miss either - just depends on what kind of evening you want. Both will provide great food. Both are kind of unique.

POT will be a loud, lively, cocktails, people watching party.
l2e will be a quiet, booze-free (not sure if they allow BYO), party in your mouth.

What's the most unique and upscale Iranian/Persian food in LA?

I would say Darya's food is very good. But traditional.

Help w/ Pot

Go!
I love the food at POT - and I get your "off-putting" comment. Because of that I wanted to find it lass than stellar. But I have not. Kogi (except for the very first time I had it when there was real quality control), A-Frame and Chego have all been busts for me; but not POT.

Are all Sugarfish locations equal?

Beverly Hills is the same as Brentwood is the same as Marina.
Can't comment on others.
