Yamashiro for sale—will it be missed?

Other than the view, nothing to mourn.

Best Steak within 200 miles not 201

Clearly Stinking Rose is the best in a 500 mile radius, but it does have heavy garlic finish.

Westwood Village update

Did you ever have anything at LaBarbera's other than pizza? Did they have anything else memorable?

Stinking arose is likely too seasoned so go with Chi Spacca.

PLAN CHECK DOWNTOWN - NOTHING LIKE IT

I believe so. Great bar scene. Lots of new apartments nearby. Like 3,500 within a few blocks.

It is going to be a pain plus.

On the Italian front, I would go with Tana's for the experience (fun, old school, great steaks and drinks). Must sit in the front room. Il Piccolino is another fav. Food is outstanding as is service. Madeo is very good, but more formal and very pricy (not that the others are cheap). Have heard very good things about both Gusto (small) and Bucato, but have not been.

PLAN CHECK DOWNTOWN - NOTHING LIKE IT

Was at the Plan Check opening last night. What a fun addition to the Downtown scene. Absolutely packed. Great bar with big screens for sports and just a really fun, creative menu. Fried chicken was outstanding. Fries were big and crispy and sweet potato fries were really tasty. New short rib dish was good too. Some salad and vegie choices have been added. Very much a party vibe. Kind of like a much more hip and creative Houston's.

AOC & Tavern

Had a great meal at AOC. The grilled peaches, farmers plate and fried oysters were all winners.

Best Duck Dishes in LA?

I was at AOC the other night and noticed a duck dish on the menu. Did not try it but would expect it to be very good as everything we had was.

I have a chef friend looking to test a new concept. Anyone know of any west side pop up locations that might work or have any suggestions. Its casual and needs 1500 - 2,000 sq ft. Thanks.

Quiet small romantic restaurant near LA Music Center

I would respectfully pass on both. Taylor's has had horrible reviews on this board and PDC is decades past its prime.

I have hosted dinners for that size group at Divino in Brentwood. They are great.

Restaurant with good food and good drinks for 40th birthday?

Drago Centro is solid but nothing exciting. Many better choices.

No bar at Mozza. Il Piccolino would be a great fit as would AOC. Tana's too if you can sit in the front room. Otherwise pass.

ok, where on the westside can i find a GREAT baked potato with sour cream?

Although I opted for the onion rings, the baked potato at The Grill looked great!

Duck

I like it a lot. They do Peking and Tea Smoked Duck.

Duck

Actually, I believe Spago will do it off the menu. Great dish.
