Brunch on Christmas Day in Denver?

Hey Denver Chowhounders!
My boo and I are looking for a fabulous brunch on Christmas day near downtown or Congress park. Anybody have any idea of places that are open?

best quesadilla near Ktown/Echo Park/Los Feliz...

I love the Sincronizada at Alegria on Sunset. It's on their lunch menu but it's packed with tasty pork carnitas, jalapeños, and grilled onions. Super delish! At night they'll make a regular carnitas quesadilla for you if you ask one of the nice folks there. The best news is that they finally take credit cards at Alegria.

Moving From Silver Lake to Del Mar. Restaurant Suggestions?

Should have been more specific. Meant Del Mar as in Washington and Centinela, between Santa Monica and Culver City. That's still LA right?

Cafe 50's Diner - Worst Diner in L.A.; What is the best L.A. Diner?

Add me to the list of Rae's lovers! It's a real diner and the prices can't be beat. I had an amazing patty melt there awhile back with fries, cole slaw, and iced tea for under 10 bucks!!

Los Angeles coffee - I'm calling you out (many boos, and one hooray)

I have to agree with you on Intelligencia. But the main thing that makes their coffee sub-par is the stank hipster attitude that comes free with every purchase. I'll pay $3 bucks for 8 ounces of coffee, no problem if the outing is a pleasurable one. This joint seems to look for ways to be unhelpful and unfriendly. I won't pay for rude regardless of how hip the people in line are. Plus, a Ryan Seacrest sighting put Intelligencia on my "Never Again" list for good.

Moving From Silver Lake to Del Mar. Restaurant Suggestions?

So after being an eastsider for 9 years, I'm moving west to Del Mar. I'd love to know good places to eat specifically Mexican, vegetarian, pizza, coffee shops, and sushi. Any tips for grocery stores and farmers markets would rock too!

Thanks!

OK. What are the best tacos in LA?

I live across the street from that Von's and Echo Park locals affectionately refer to her as "Taco Lady". And it rarely dissappoints! The lines can be intense though. I'm a huge fan of the chorizo tacos and asada quesadillas.

Best ice cream in Los Angeles- an updated poll

Okay, I'm glad we're coming out of the Thrifty closet here! I love the Black Cherry!

Toast on Third... never again.

Add Toast to the over-rated restaurants on 3rd list. There seems to be no shortage of crappy over-rated brunch spots filled with vapid pretty people, so-so food, and universially awful service. If I have to eat on that pretentious street, I'll eat or Cynthia's or Kings Road. But i'd rather eat at the Farmer's Market any day.

Thoughts on 15 in Echo Park?

I live right down the street from this new-ish restaurant 15 on Echo Park Ave. I'm curious to try it although the menu didn't knock my socks off. Have any chowhounders tried it? Loved it? Hated it? Let me know. I was considering taking my parents there while they are in town. We always like to try new places together.

What should I order from Casa Bianca?

Thanks, fatkitty! Yeah I've heard all the hype as well as all the hate so I just have to check it out for myself! I have an open mind (and mouth) so I'll report back next week. Thanks for the tips about going early. We were planning on 7pmish but now we'll move it up!

Happy Hour at Abode

Sounds really good! I've been wanting to visit Abode and HH might be a good intro.

What should I order from Casa Bianca?

I've never been to this legendary Eagle Rock eatery but I've always wanted to. I'm going with my best friend next Wednesday. Any tips from Casa Bianca regulars on what to order, what's the best time to go, things to avoid, etc.?

first time in LA, but only for 24 hours

Pete's downtown is not far from your hotel and great for cocktails and munchies. Good bloody marys, blue cheese fries, and mac & cheese!

Agreed with the Farmer's Market! Plus Bob's Coffee + Donuts is fabulous! And the French Crepe Company rocks too.

Has Anybody tried Intelligista in Silverlake?

Just tried Intelligentsia (sorry about the misspelling in the original post) this morning and I was underwhelmed. Sounds like I need to check out Groundworks though.....

Best Burger in LA

Suprisingly, I think LA is a great burger town. From Bar Marmont and the Apple Pan to Tommy's and B&Rs there's tasy hamburgers in nearly every neighborhood. One of my favorites is from The Original Texas Barbecue King downtown. It's smokey, juicy, and gigantic.Don't wait in the slow moving line- call ahead and pick it up!

Has Anybody tried Intelligista in Silverlake?

This new coffee shop has my curiousity piqued for sure. I've heard it's over priced, pretntous, poorly layed out, crowded. But I've also heard it's tasty, unique and hip. So has anyone here given it a shot?

Pls recommend lunch/brunch for Silverlake/Pasadena/H.Wood

Blair's on Rowena now does brunch. It's pricey but yummy. They have a full bar and an extensive menu.

Cupcakes :: the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly...

Agreed the salted carmel cupcake at Lark is divine. Avoid the cookies, though.
Personally, I like the yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting at Delilah's as well as the red velvet but I'm kind of over red velevt these days.

We're going to a show at the wiltern and wondered if there's a good place to have a drink and something to eat after the show?
