Pascal or Marche Moderne

Both are very good, except that when Pascal is not at the restaurant, the quality slips considerably.

Coming to Irvine. Need tacos.

from John Wayne, you can make it to Taco Bravo on 19th and Placentia. I am usually only gringo girl there. They make their own tortillas, salsa, etc. You know you have it authentic when I am the only one ordering in english!

Dining Near Cedars

Here is a challenge for u Chowhounds. Because my son had a kidney transplant with so many complications, we have made a second home (from Huntington Beach to Cedars) over the past 3+ years. I need to get some recommendations for food near Cedars Sinai, that is not organic or sushi (raw grade) because due to my son's transplant, that is now off of the list of what he can eat. I need for early breakfast (6-7 am), lunch and dinner. Also need for take out. Plus as an added bonus need it to be within walking distance (not Jerry's anymore, please. Lived there for almost a year). Since I can bring food to my son (he is so sick of hospital food after 20+ admissions, and they never change the menu), I want something appetizing to a 14 year old, but make sure I can walk it because the parking $$$ there is really expensive. With medicines, medical bills and driving almost 50 miles, it all adds up. And, after this amount of time, we really need to cut costs, but not quality or flavor. Thanks so much for your help in advance.

For cheap, fresh lobster (I cannot believe I am telling you this) in Huntington Beach. The place? Longboards on Main Street. I do not think they take reservations. My hubby's family is Boston (grandfather was a bootlegger against JFK's dad), and he loves their lobster. Simple and boiled. It used to be 2 lobsters 1 - 1 1/2 lbs each, boiled potatoes, corn on the cob and I believe corn muffins (or something like that) for around $25-30 per person. My hubby would eat his 2 lobsters, the 1 1/2 I had left over from mine and anyone else that wanted to keep their fingers. It usually runs from I believe end of September to sometime in October. Near the beach, heat lamps sports, etc. Really down home, but get there early, because when they sell out, that's it for the night. And, really good jerk chicken wings. I'm not telling you when we are going, because I want to make sure we don't miss it!

Doesn't have the "ocean view," but Marche Mardone (sp, sorry), has a really good prix fixe, the chef/owner is from Pinot Provence. His wife is the pastry chef, and she is awesome. If you call in advance, I am sure they would do something special for you. They are located at South Coast Plaza. My boss and his wife know him from Pinot and if you call in advance and explain your situation, I am sure they would be happy to do a special menu for you, together with paired wines. They did it for my boss and his friends all of the time. The $20.00 three course is quite lovely. Hidden gem.
