Beyond Vegan

Please be aware that new research from the health community confirms that oil is NOT the villain, and a certain amount of oil is, in fact, necessary for your good health.
The villain is carbs.

Where to buy orange roughy or sea bass?

Black cod has many many bones, making it difficult to prepare.

As a pescatarian for over 30 years, I wholeheartedly recommend
that you try halibut, and believe you will definitely enjoy it!
IMHO, it is way better than sea bass, and more consistent;
plus it is NOT endangered.

3% healthcare charge: coming to more receipts near you

"I'm one of those who gives my credit card to the server without the server even bringing me the bill. I trust them."

Amazing to me that you trust that situation.
I eat lunch out a lot and soooo many times
I've been charged dinner priceswhen it should
have been the lunch price.
Also amazing: Consistent overtipping (25%)
Am I to understand that ALL your servers have
been 'outstanding'? What is the point?

Suggestions for vegetarian-friendly dinners in Fairfax or WeHo area, downtown, and Santa Monica area

My stretch. My studio was on Fairfax south of SM blvd and north of Melrose, and we definitely were West Hollywood, zip code 90046. There are 7 neighborhoods in WeHo; however I do note that Genet IDs their location as Carthay, and Urbanspoon calls it Mid City.
It is just blocks from 'the border'!

Nobu is all I know with a Peruvian accent.
As stated, I was hoping that CHs would know and show ME the way.

Sweet Crush and Surfas

A Chowhound here likes their bread a lot and
recommended it to me, but I do not care for their bread.

WeHo has many Ethiopian restaurants that could work; I suggest
Meals by Genet as the best option.

L.A. Dish of the Month, October 2014 -- LATIN-AMERICAN SEAFOOD

I never thought that Mexican food and Latin American food were interchangeable. When voting for Latin American Seafood, I really hoped for a good look at Peruvian, Brasilian and other exotic ethnic food. Chs have done tacos AND taco places endlessly, if not exhaustively.

Los Angeles Restaurants in the 80's

There was a Viva La Pasta on Westwood and Olympic,
and also one in Palos Verdes that was a real treat
for us, being a departure from the usual food choices
of the local engineer crowd that dominated PV.
The Sunday brunches at Viva la Pasta were sensational especially for that time.

ok, where on the westside can i find a GREAT baked potato with sour cream?

No, it ain't it.
Daisy is way too sweet with added product.
Good sour cream is Knudson's Hampshire.

Fish for a Birthday dinner

C&T is beyond noisy; probably over 100 decibels.
My sweet husband was nauseated by the time we departed,
and we will never return.

...and I don't see deli being even close to any slugfest; as ns1
observed, deli had a good turn with pastrami.

Oh just relax

Relax your dissing environmental concerns that are unpleasant, and worse, HARMFUL/
Hardly an inappropriate term, pal:

boy·cott
ˈboiˌkät/
verb
1. withdraw from commercial or social relations with (a country, organization, or person) as a punishment or protest <usually for CHANGE>.
synonyms: spurn, snub, shun, avoid, abstain from, wash one's hands of, turn one's back on, reject, veto
refuse to buy or handle (goods) as a punishment or protest.
refuse to cooperate with or participate in (a policy or event).

Seems to me that the oonly way to get back a
pleasant dining environment in restaurants is to
spread the word. Boycotts do that

Reports of 57 were staggeringly negative; the food, the prices, bad service, selling their reservations, constant errors regarding food and billing

10 Reasons Why Whole Foods Is Annoying

Hi!
I once steered myself through one negative experience after another. It was early in the WF history and my first and penultimate visit to WF. It was not a good one.
I made my check out to AHole Foods and the clerk
went ballistic and made me submit another one! Too funny

"How about this - vote with your feet and wallet. If the place is too loud, eat elsewhere."

Gee, and i thought i said that. Read more carefully;
your non sequitur is the joke post.

<The only way to avoid this deafening sound level is to boycott these 80-100+decibel places and make everyone aware that action and avoidance are the only way to promote a change>.
