Does the menu change daily?

How accommodating are they to food issues and preference?

TIA

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.

Birthday Brunch - I'm hosting

Maybe 13 people-
Beach to Weho
No place where someone cant get egg whites (i.e Everleigh)
Booze
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.

TIA

How many nights a week do you have dessert?

Growing up, my mom made dinner every night. We did not have dessert.

Dessert was a treat that we had on special occasions - birthdays, holidays, vacations, dinner at the home of a friend.

The irony is, my mom was a word class baker. There was always several types of homemade cookies in the freezer, cakes and pies. It was not until my siblings and I were 11 or 12 that we understood that my mom baked these items to satisfy her late night sweet tooth.

As teenager and young adults we too were able to enjoy the "goodies" in the freezer.

Those were the days.

LAX and environs

We often travel with our own wine - this is what we use.

http://www.iwawine.com/the-wine-check...

You do have to check it. The bottles are totally protected.

If going internationally, check with local customs to see who many bottles per person you are allowed. We have never had a problem.

Where is a good Deli?

Label's Table on Pico has really good CB and pastrami. They also have a nice crusty rye bread.

Full disclosure - there is no ambiance - but the food is really good.

Sugar-free Salted Caramels ... where?

I would like to know if you find them. How do you take sugar out of caramel?

Israel - December - 14 people - 6 Kids (under 11)

I would welcome any suggestions. My boss and his entire family - including 6 kids under the age of 11 - are traveling this December to Israel. They keep kosher, which I don't anticipate being an issue in Israel. I am more concerned with the size of the party and the cost.

Any suggestions for kid friendly reasonably priced places to eat in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Eilat.

TIA

I need help ! extremely picky eater & basically wont eat anything !

Cookie - I have seen this issue with adults and children. It is a control/attention issue not a food issue. I promise it will get better.

She will not starve. She is 6, at 6 you have very little power/control over anything in your life. Your sister is very smart and has figured out that she has power - yes power- over you entire family when she decides not to eat something.

My brother ate NOTHING but cheeseburgers and peanut butter sammies for over a year (he was 8). My parents would stop for a McDonalds cheeseburger on the way to where ever we were going. That is power and control.

I am happy to say that my brother grew out of it - so will your sister. Just remember, It is not about food rather the reaction she gets for not eating the food.

I wish you all the best!

Lasagna by the Pan - Would you Choose Angelini Osteria or Mozza?

I would order from Joans on Third or Clementine for what may amount to half the cost.

A dinner/lunch guest should be sure to......

I was taught that if flowers are your intended gift, to have them sent early in the day of the event so that the hostess/host can decide where they should go.

Need a cool LA spot for rehearsal dinner..large group (30 ppl)... think Dar Maghreb

If you are going with Greek - Papa Cristos - WHILE AN INSTITUTION- lacks in every category she mentions.

Greek for the cost that is GOOD, with a very pretty patio, live music and they will smash plates for you is Sofis on 3rd.

Suplus of Egg Whites: Help!!

One of my favorite and easiest dishes to have. Take your favorite veggies and steam them (broccoli, cauliflower etc etc) spray a 13x 9 dish with pam. Preheat oven to 350.

dump veggies in cover with egg whites. feel free to add chicken, ham, tofu. cheese - empty the fridge.

Add garlic, salt and pepper to your liking.

Back for 20 - 30 minutes until eggs set up. Last 5 minutes sprinkle top with parmesan cheese - or the cheese of your choice.

TO UP THE ANTI - I sautee onions, potatoes, zuccinni with bacon in butter/evoo and garlic. It is always the first to disappear off the buffet at brunch.

You can use ANYTHING in the fridge.

I like it cold too!

Sherbourne - Hidden Gem May be Running out of Time

I had dinner there a few months ago with a few girl friends on a Saturday night. The place is pretty. I love the tree growing in the middle of the room.

We were looking forward to the mashed potato cart. We were not disappointed. Wonderful combinations that I never would have thought of that "worked".

Sadly, it was the only thing that worked.

The place was hard to find. Once we found it we were given attitude my the hostess. MIGHT I POINT OUT the place was empty at 8:00 on a Saturday night and stayed empty, but for one other table until we left at 10:30pm

One couple came in and left after 20 mins. I assume they left because NO ONE ever approached their table.

Our server was present half the time. He let us order WAY too much food - which is kinda of annoying.

This place is not cheap. The food is average for LA.

3 people - 2 cocktails a piece, three apps, 2 entrees (1 chicken and 1 fish), 1 dessert it was $100 a person.

I won't be going back and for the money I don't think it is worth a trip for anyone.

The Sherbourne

The room is very small and on a Saturday night when i went a few weeks ago, EMPTY. It is expensive for WHAT it is.

The Spuds where the highlight, but so good I will be going back.
