BBQ Brisket Alert

having some beer in the coolers may allow for a later crowd.

Gentrification of Los Angeles Chinatown Continues--Little Jewel

i had some concerns too because it was empty when i went around noon. within minutes, the place was packed. the po boys are excellent so hopefully, the place gets a foothold.

Taylor's Steakhouse dinner tonight

i'm a fan. the wedge. a culotte. a stiff gin martini.

it's not mastros but the place fits like a nice warm sweater.

i've come to realize it's a place you either love or hate. there seems to be very few in the middle for this place.

Eagle Rock Italian Bakery

got to say that this is a damn fine sandwich in the area. a large for $4.75 has got to be one of the better deals for an italian cold cut sandwich.

best sushi lunch in Studio City

sushi don.

nothing else in the city like sushi gen's sashimi lunch.

i'd make the drive to shunji's for their lunch. the best $40 you'll spend on sushi.

Taylor's Steak House

i really like the bar at taylors in ktwon. very good, stiff gin martinis at like $8 each. cool old school vibe. not on par of mastros but i think i have much more fun here.

DineLA Meals Reported -- July 2014

it's a good dish though i think the tonnerelli (sp?) at gusto is better. had them 2 days apart. my dining companions agreed.

The Early Bird Special at Flores and The Ladies’ Gunboat Society

went there about 2 weeks ago. one of the most memorable meals i've had all year. it's shocking that it's pretty much not full even at peak times considering all other restaurants in the area have people waiting outside.

DineLA Meals Reported -- July 2014

i don't think the spaghetti is a half portion for the tasting. i think that's the actual size at $24 too.

i could be wrong but i remember trying it a la carte and then as an addition and the portions being about the same. just half the cost during dine la.
