Hinoki & The Bird or The Bazaar for Birthday?

Did not know about H&B. Bazaar is a very fun BDay venue. I like the Rojo or Blanco rooms. Its a scene and you will have fun. My feeling is the way to do it is to involve the server in your menu. Otherwise its too much complication on the menu. Tell him/her what you like and dont and how much food you want. Follow their recs. Great Bday spot.

Affordable wedding catering in Los Angeles

Manny is your man. Just had him do a holiday party for about 40 people and he was fantastic. He had two people assisting him (so 3 total). Very professional and attentive. Can do the food, bar and clean up. I just sent him a text and he indicated he could work with your budget. His number is 661-472-5050. Tell him Thor recommended him.

Plus 1 on Chi Spacca. I have had them create a tasting menu in the past.

Is Riva Bella that bad?

Did not care for it the two times I went, but that was early on. Any recent opinions?

PS: I heard it may be closing.

LA's Oldest Still-Thriving Restaurants

Although just outside LA, Cold Spring Tavern was established in 1865. Thats got to be the oldest.

Followed by "seriously though...". However, I dont see that pasta dish as being the most "sensational" of this year or any other year. The pastas at Sotto are much better. Im sure Bestia is too. The sausage and truffle pasta I had recently at Terroni was much better. Again, we are talking most sensational of the year.

Bestia or Factory Kitchen

Made it to Factory Kitchen. Could not get an early reservation at Bestia. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed. To all the Mandilli di Seta "the most sensational pasta dish of the year" is an affront to Bucca de Beppo. Seriously, though it was IMHO nothing special at all. Further to compare the Focacenia to those at Chi Spacca is a joke. They were ok (the Cotto was even good) but not in the same class as Chi Spacca. The Porchetta was the best dish we had and the John Dory was nice. Service was ok and the vibe was fun. Hard drinks were very expensive. $17 for the least expensive tequila, but wines by the glass were reasonable. All in all, good but not great in my view.

2014 - Best Sushi Omakase

I simply sent an email saying I would be honored to dine with then and was open to date and time. Within a couple of hours I was given a choice of dates within 2 weeks at 7 pm. Was fantastic.

I dont think that has proven to be the case with Newport Seafood in BH. Obviously, that does not mean it wont be here.
