Leona - Venice

Anyone tried Leona yet? It's in the space where Canali Cafe was on Washington in Venice.

Hollywood or Mid Wilshire

Used to really like Cheebo and Los Balcones is on my list. We went to Oinkster and it was not good. The pastrami had many hard pieces in it although the taste of the sandwich was good. Burger was fine but nothing special. Fries were good. The people working there were super nice, price was right and it was easy to park but I will not be returning. Next time The Pikey it is...

Hollywood or Mid Wilshire

Thanks Wienermobile - I usually agree with your reviews so I will try one of these that I haven't tried yet. How is The Pikey?

Republique - Lunch

Lunch was fantastic! Great salad with the freshest & sweetest peaches and the kimchi fried rice was wonderful. Trying the sandwich next time Bob Brooks.

Hollywood or Mid Wilshire

Is Pikey still good? Anything else in the Hollywood or mid Wilshire area for quick dinner on the way to The Greek? Looking for Non-Asian, casual and not expensive.

I liked O&Y very much as well. Enjoyed the whole experience at LJ as well as the larger menu though.
Need to try those fries next time...

Republique - Lunch

Have been to Republique for dinner and every dish has been perfect. Going for lunch tomorrow. Any recommendations?

We went on a Sunday around 5 and there was street parking. Enjoy!

Wow! The best sandwiches, fun place...
I had the Meatball Po'Boy and my husband had Fried Shrimp Po'Boy. Both were perfect! Wish they were on the Westside but probably a good thing they aren't.

Bel Campo

Fries were okay - kind of limp and not seasoned. Not terrible but far from great. I love good fries and these were not worth wasting the calories on. Maybe this was just an off night as I know many people think it's a great restaurant

Bel Campo

I sent back my meat (rarely do that but it was truly inedible) and ordered the burger. It was better than the other two entrees but nothing special.

Where to eat - foodies from NYC?

Love L.A. but not sure how anyone can say the food is better than New York. Not even close.

meals in Newport Beach

I always enjoy The Crab Cooker - no frills, old school seafood. Great chowder and fresh fish. Get there early as it gets very crowded and they don't take reservations.

Where to eat - foodies from NYC?

Republique on La Brea is wonderful. Great flavors and everything just works. Pretty room too. Agree with Maude if you can get in. Excellent tasting menu based around one key ingredient that's featured in every course. Enjoy L.A.!

Bel Campo

Really awful dinner at Bel Campo in Santa Monica. I like grass fed beef and I know it can taste stronger than regular meat but the steak was so strong it tasted more like liver than steak. The beef tips were almost raw and not even lukewarm even though they were supposed to be hot. Even the French Fries were mediocre at best. Our waiter was nice and the plum tart for dessert (which he offered on the house) was very good.
Doubt I will ever go back.

South Jersey Seafood Shack

visiting this summer and I would love to find a great, casual place for good seafood. Like Oyster Creek but with good food - the kind of place you find in New England. Any area from Atlantic City to Ocean City, Sea Isle etc

Looking for some good restaurant mushroom dishes

The stuffed mushrooms at The Rainbow on Sunset in WeHo are wonderful.

Saturday Lunch

Thanks all. Love the view at The Huntley! I think we are going to MDR Hotel. Food isn't special but it's better than most in the area and it's lovely to sit outside.
Happy Weekend.

We love to drive to other areas but Wildwood may be a little too far. Thanks!

Saturday Lunch

Any ideas for a pleasant lunch with longtime family friends on Saturday afternoon? Westside is preferable but we are open - good food - nothing too ethnic. Love the patio at Gracias Madre but not sure they'd like the food.

South Jersey Shore

I ate there years ago and I didn't love it. Anything new that's good? Even in other towns?

the galley in santa monica

The steak used to be fantastic but has declined in recent years. Fun place with a nautical, funky vibe. The chowder, salad and steamed clams are all good. Decent shrimp scampi too. Good happy hour also

Dinner in Arcadia

Going to Cal Phil Concert at Santa Anita on Saturday. Any ideas for dinner first? Not Asian or Mexican.

Fantastic Greek - near LAX

Aliki Greek Taverna is a real find. I have been here numerous times and I have tried many items on the menu. Everything is always fresh, well seasoned and delicious. Tonight I had a wonderful salad with cucumber, green peppers, feta cheese, red onion and perfectly seasoned sautéed chicken. The dressing was perfect. Their moussaka both traditional and the high protein version with eggplant and ground beef are wonderful. The chicken kabobs and the stuffed chicken are delicious. My husband is a fan of their gyros. Pricing is very fair and the waiters and chefs are all super nice. Aliki never disappoints.

Who's "Mary", and why does Restaurant Week seem to be eating her chickens?

Mary's Chicken tends to be more moist and tastier than other chicken. Of course it depends on how it is prepared.

Rockenwagner West LA Closed

I tried to meet someone there last week only to find it had closed. Too bad as I really enjoyed their breakfast and lunch. Nothing extraordinary but super fresh. They never really gave it a chance. We need more breakfast and lunch options close to Barrington.

South Jersey Shore

Planning our annual visit to Ventnor (from L.A.) in August.
Would love to find a few new places to try.
Especially love seafood and basic Italian but open to all types of cuisine.
Even a seafood shack type place. Love the feel of Oyster Creek but never had a good meal there.
Anywhere from Atlantic City, Ventnor, Margate, Brigantine and Somer's Point to Sea Isle, Stone Harbor, Avalon...

These are our tried and true and would love to add to the list -
Steve and Cookie's
Doc's Oyster House
Smith's Clam Bar
Crabby's for hard shell crabs
Tony's for pizza
The White House for subs
Angelo's - although not as good as it used to be

Thank You!

Best Breakfast in LA?

The Griddle in Hollywood is not too far from Beverly Hills. The Pancakes and French Toast are wonderful as well as the eggs, ham steak and potatoes. Lines look long but usually move quickly. The portions are large so you may not want to eat lunch that day.
