Maude: Truffles

I have been to four diners. The wine pairings are the ONLY miss. This is the best food in town by far. However, corkage is $50 per bottle.

Starter Knives

Forschner is used in many restaurant kitchens. They are available in most restaurant supply stores (Surfas, Star) The chefs knife and the paring knives are great for very little money.

Mastro's, CUT, or STK? Looking for best steak in LA

The meat and the prep at Cut is the best in the city. It is way, way overpriced. But, as a grad celebration, if price is not an issue, there is no equal in Los Angeles.

I would go to Bashan in Glendale. Great tasting Menu, top chef, voted "best under the radar top restaurant".

bestia or lucques for birthday dinner?

Bestia made no sense to me. Food was not outstanding, place was loud, rude, busy, Not a place I would go back to, much less for a Birthday.

Searching for a Japanese Knife Shop, Downtown and 2nd Floor

Anzen has only 'everyday" knives on display. BUT ...if you ask, he has a safe with very special and very,very, expensive handmade one of a kind knives.

Lasagna by the Pan - Would you Choose Angelini Osteria or Mozza?

Best fresh shrimp--Where to get?

Fish King has only frozen shrimp , defrosted. Great fresh fish selection.

Staying at Beverly Wilshire tomorrow night

I agree with Animal. This will be unlike any food you know. A steak is a steak (Cut is very good). Animal is a dinning experience. Red Medicine is another food experience that you will not find in another city.
