How Do You Decide What To Cook?

I agree with you Sinicle.
Very important to ask before you jump into a recipe. I would just add on more, religious reasons could effect what your friend will or will not eat too don't forget that. So be direct and just ask it will save a headache later on.

LA Newbie - What/where is a MUST eat?

Hello Spiffae, I'd have to say you must try Crustaceans. Mmm it is sooo good and really nice inside. It's a bit pricey though, you may want to save this one for a special occasion. About 41.50 for a full crab and garlic noodles to die for. Almost every time I go I see a famous person. You'll enjoy esp if you like seafood.

Restaurants at the Grove-Fairfax

Yes I've eaten there, it is a nice place to go esp with your son. There is a very diverse crowd of ppl and a friendly environment. He may want to check out the Apple store of some of the shops. As far as the food I've eaten at the Cheesecake Factory, Johnny Rockets and Dupars (might wanna check the spelling on that lol). But all of those place's where fine. Oh i also ate the Chipotle, but its not a sit down dinner type of place, its like the subway of mexican food. lol if you can picture that, but it is very good. Hope you enjoy!

Crab Meat [Moved from DC/Baltimore Area board]

I'm originally from Baltimore, MD and miss the taste of a Baltimore crab. California doesn't sell crab meat in their markets. I usually have to go to Whole Foods. The box of crab meat I had said it was from Maryland but ofcourse it didn't taste like it. How can I get some authentic Baltimore crab meat in Los Angeles? Are there any places that will ship on dry ice?
