If can't get into French Laundry for 50th bday where should we eat in Los Angeles?

My memory fails me at this point. You might try calling and asking or simply googling other peoples' TFL experiences.

I recall ports, madeiras, etc. (each of exceeding pedigree and caliber, of course) are on offer after the dinner service at TFL.

After your meal, did they offer you a job behind the counter at Belcampo, Monsieur Taster?

Not a joke: Eat the breakfast chicken fried steak at The Marina Cafe, near the boat landing at Lake Casitas Recreational Area in Ojai.

Westwood Alert: A New Kosher Boutique Butcher Shop is in the Works

The Rabbi's Daughter is in the final phase of completion before its grand opening. Located just bit north (and across the street) from Lenny's Deli on Westwood Boulevard, their Facebook site says they will offer kosher beef, veal, poultry, as well as gourmet "grab-and-run" food items as well.

Recs for Chinese mid afternoon lunch tomorrow near the 10

JTYH is indeed all that, but it's a bit off the beaten path (i.e. far from the 10-Fwy exit) for the OP.

Second the beef gyro at Sunny Grill. It is very tasty, with good tzatziki sauce.

Racion was once the darling of this board. However, there has been a significant downhill slide in food quality over the last year.

burgers

More seriously, I like that FO burger too much to ever want to be on Sang Yoon's persona non grata list...

Besides, I do agree that the pre-conceived tastes shouldn't be messed with at FO - In this case, there is indeed method to Sang Yoon's madness.

Shi Hai Has The Best Dim Sum In Town

I like my abalone 2 different ways:

(1) Slow-steamed whole, with sake or rice wine - In this format, I recommend Sushi Hanesaka in Tokyo for the best version of this.

(2) Braised Cantonese-style, with mushrooms and vegetables. The best version of this I had was at my relative's house in Vancouver. BUT, restaurant-wise I recommend Lei Garden in HK.
