Poke @ OC Costco (Tustin, The District)

When in Hawaii, I always stop Costco as they have several variety's of Poke and sashimi. There are probably just testing it out. The pricing is average, I pay about the same at Bristol Farms in Manhattan Beach. They have several variety's, I am a fan of the spicy.

Recs for a Redondo Beach gastropub for girl's night out?

The one in MB is small so its is crowded and loud, but great location. Food is good, but limited menu due to space limitations. Their Burger built their empire and its really good. Breakfast is sort of bland so I pass. Beer list is above average (Beer and wine only). Sister restaurant, Tin Roof is a grown up Simmzy's with a more robust menu and full liquor license. Its a local favorite, with reservations helpful, even at lunch.

Recs for a Redondo Beach gastropub for girl's night out?

Couple of notes from a North Redondo Resident. The scene is more mature in MB. You might check out Rockefeller (MB/HB), the Strandhouse, Simmzzy's (Small but fun) or MB Brew. MB Post is good, but crowded, resos are essential. Tin Roof and Hudson House aren't surrounded by much but Tin Roof is the clear choice there.

Just got back from Mammoth on this Sun. My friends always stop at the Thai place at the Bishop airport and on this trip stopped at the Alabama Hills Café in Lone Pine which they liked. I stopped at Schot's in Bishop for a Sandwich, but its sort of a zoo on Sunday. Mahogany Meats makes sandwiches as good as Schot's but w/out the wait.

We ate at Angele's in Mammoth. Avoid. Bad meatloaf and watery French onion soup. I ate at Campo last summer and it was not bad. Reasonable corkage fee as I brought a bottle.

They need snow, spring like conditions with the lower mountain looking like Sochi.

Bean and cheese burritos.

Mario's in Pico Rivera. Family owned and hasn't changed a bit in over 35 years. The fries and red and green burritos are also very good. Always a must stop for me.

Grimaldi's in El Segun, it looks like it's open now ? Customers sitting outside, waiting carrying pizzas out, looks pretty open to me, when I drove by earlier.

Yes, they are open. Checked out the place yesterday as it's my office is near. No take out for now as they get through the opening process. Sort of reminds me of the Old Town Scottsdale location. Beer and Wine Only.

Where does one go for authentic Americanized Chinese food?

Try Al's Palace in Costa Mesa. Belly busting lunch specials with all of the old favorites.

If can't get into French Laundry for 50th bday where should we eat in Los Angeles?

I was at TFL about 2 months ago, walked in to see if they had any cancellations (Ha Ha). The manager said they were full, but he did say that there is a private room upstairs that can be reserved up to a year in advance. I believe it seats approx. 8-10.
