Can't get my Le Creuset interior clean

ok, I have an un untested idea but I think it will work. I work for a coffee company and I use a product called Purocaf. It is used for cleaning espresso parts from coffee stained items. Of course it is food safe as it is made to work on portafilters and group heads. I use it at home on my porcelain sink and it takes all the stains out if it with just a light scrub and soak in really hot water.

Culinary Tour in Santa Monica area

great suggestions. I found Lemonade on my last culinary tour and love it and go back all the time! Abbot's Pizza is my favorite and i have been going there ever since i moved to the marina. They have great topping options and excellent bagel crust. Gjelina's menu looks interesting and I will definitley go there on my own, but that is a little out of the rhelm of what I am looking for. It is a little too upscale for us. Honestly we are looking for ideas to incorporate into our coffee shops. As of now, i definitley plan on going to funnel mill and sweet rose creamery to give you an idea of the direction of where we are going so far, but need a great place like Lemonade for lunch.

Culinary Tour in Santa Monica area

I will check those places out, but our tour is only on Saturday so the farmers market is out. I have been there on my own many times and it is definitley a great place to check out.

Culinary Tour in Santa Monica area

I work for a large coffee company in Product Development and will be going on a Culinary Tour in the Santa Moinca area on Friday and am looking for new and unique places to eat and drink. We are not looking for formal seating or too upscale. We are looking for cafes, bakeries, ice cream shops, fun lunch spots, etc... Since we are based out of LA, we have been to the usual places that always come up in searches. Where are the hidden gems? We will probably go to 4-8 places depending on the extent and uniqueness of the menu items. Let's see the suggestions!

What are L. A.’s best (and worst) Reuben* sandwiches?

I really like Solley's on Van Nuys. They have a great reuben as well as a super reuben with corned beef and pastrami. Definitely get the New York size if you want more meat. Otherwise, the LA version is much thinner on the meet. They also have great sweet potato fries to go with it.

Good restaurant near the Drake?

I am in the same situation as you. I ended up getting a reservation at Gibson's Bar and Grill. By the way, I'll be at the show as well!

Good Restaurant Near Sutton Place Hotel

I ended haveing to pick a restaurant right away and went with Gibson's Bar and Steakhouse. They were one of the only ones I was able to get a reservation at that were really close to my hotel. Did I make an OK decision? Any recommendations on what to order? Obviously steak is their staple items, but anything else that is worth getting?
