Chopped liver, not pate, nor mousse

Gelson's is REALLY good. You can special order it.

Los Angeles Dinner Suggestions please?

These two places are very close to LAX and $20/ a person range.

Truxton's -

Paco's Tacos

downtown group dinner

Badmaash - indian gastro pub....amazing.

Dr. Sandwich - Middle Eastern fast food

Arthur I agree 100% with your post. I have been there a few times now. The food is OK, expensive for what it is, even by kosher standards.

The service has always been VERY slow, not terribly helpful and on the verge of rude.

Once I actually have asked for my money back after waiting 30 minutes for my order and the place was nearly empty.

I feel as though AnditaS is somehow associated with the place and is simply trying to gain attention for the place.

If you want good Kosher in the neighborhood go to Sushi Ko.

If you want good food in that mall go to Tartin, Crazy Fish or Primavera!!!

My silly Safeway seafood salad search

They sell that salad at Bristol Farms.....

Santa Monica The back patio would be great.

The patio at Gjelina - would also be nice.

Mile-high apple pie in metro area?

Al Gelato on Robertson has an apple pie that is easily 6" high, and DELISH!!

The food is great there.


Thanksgiving in Paso Robles/San Luis Obispo

I had New Year's dinner at Robert's - it was very nice.

Thanksgiving in Paso Robles/San Luis Obispo

Artisan may be closed for the holiday, but make sure you get their cubano sammie on another day - bliss.

Saturday Night Dinner for BFFs in Santa Monica - WHERE TO GO

We would like a reservation.

Bucato looks lovely.

We have been to Superba, I agree it is great.

The New Little Door on 26th was my first choice, sadly they are booked.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I will let you know where we end up.

Los Angeles Restaurants in the 80's

Sadly, Michael Roberts had MS.

Saturday Night Dinner for BFFs in Santa Monica - WHERE TO GO

We have been to all the places listed and we like them all.

We are looking for a bit of a scene, good food, we want to be able to have a conversation and hear each other.

Drinks are important too....

Culver City, Brentwood, we are open to suggestions...was hoping for someplace new.


Saturday Night Dinner for BFFs in Santa Monica - WHERE TO GO

Open to all cuisines and cost is not a huge concern.

Where would should we go.

Cheese (West LA and Northwest suburbs)

Keep in mind the "sliding scale" at the BH Cheese shop. A regular pays less than the average Joe who walks in off the street.

Also keep in mind that they price nearly all the cheese the same, at approximately $35/lb.

Ideas for Baby Shower Dish

Order a dish from your local Thai restaurant on your way to the shower. Use the 30 minutes of prep time to transfer the food into a pretty dish you brought form home.

Alma or Orsa & Winston, if you could choose one?

O & W. I was NOT impressed with the wine pairings that were offered with our meal.

If the chicken liver mouse in on the menu - ORDER IT - AMAZING.

Power Outage - FRidge/Freezer - what to keep ...if anything

I'm in Los Angeles, and it was nearly 90 degrees last night when the power was off. The house heated up within 10 mins.

I am guessing the temp at 2pm when the power went back on was easily 90+ degrees

I did NOT open the frig or the freezer once during the outage. My freezer is full, side my side items.

Power Outage - FRidge/Freezer - what to keep ...if anything

So the power went out last night at 8pm. As of 6:30amthis morning it was still out. I believe it went back on around 2:00pm this afternoon - or approximately 18 hours.

All dairy and meat in both the frig and freezer are a total loss I fear.

My gut is to toss it all (sadly)and use the situation as an expensive excuse to clean out the the frig and freezer.

Please let me know what, if anything you think is safe to keep.

Their prices are pricey. Service can be iffy. The food is VERY good.

Where to have Dinner on Rosh Hashana

I believe we did Rosh Hashana at the Daily Grill one year, I just can't remember if we did the menu or if it was offered.

We just go back year after year to Akasha - it is so good and now part of our tradition.

Brunch delivery

Nate N Als

(Almost) any deli will deliver you platters.

You didn't include which neighborhood you are in.

Check out LA Bite....

Delivery to Anaheim hotel?

You should ask the concierge when you check in.

Rustic Canyon

I have a dinner there coming up.

Can someone tell-

Does the menu change daily?

How accommodating are they to food issues and preference?


Where Should I Have Lunch?

If you are game for a road trip - I saw head north to King's Burgers-Got Sushi....
9345 Reseda Blvd
Northridge, CA 91324

The sushi was amazing.

This is a JOINT worth visiting!!!!

Seafood Main Course for 8 That Doesn't Break the Bank?

Make a batch of gazpacho (Ina Garten recipe) - garnish with shrimp, crab of lobster on top. SO refreshing - a side salad and a great loaf of crusty garlic bread -
Add Rose to drink and fresh fruit and a cheese plate for dessert and you have my perfect summer meal.

Baby Shower Locations

If you are looking at $15-20 a person, I would find a friend to host and call in a taco truck or bring in platters of Chinese food.

I don't know where you can have a shower and come in at $20 inclusive of food/beverage/tax and tip.

Orsa and Winston Tonight - Which Option?

Go with the 5 course and a couple of supplements - if they have the chicken liver -OMG not to be missed.

Favorite chocolate chip cookies from an LA area bakery?

La Provance on Olympic and Lapeer - AMAZE balls!!!!

Birthday Brunch - I'm hosting

Maybe 13 people-
Beach to Weho
No place where someone cant get egg whites (i.e Everleigh)
A patio would be nice
Keep it $40-45 a person all in (food, booze, tax and tip)

While I will eat almost anything - my friends are a bit more "traditional" in their brunch desires.


Girls night out - HELP

Thanks everyone.

I think we decided to go to The Wallace in Culver City.

I will let you all know what we thought.

UNLESS there is STRONG opposition to this post.
