Pizzicotto in Brentwood--anyone been?

I haven't eaten there in years, but when I did I the gnocchi and pasta.

Josie or Grace

The night is a Saturday, so it won't be Wednesday donut night. It seems the chow hounds are fairly split on this one. Not helping make my decision any easier. I have reservations at Grace at 7:30 and at Josie at 8:15, so perhaps I'll just base the decision on better time. Although it seems wrong to pick for that reason. I really appreciate all the input. Any other input on these two places is welcome, of course.

Going to Cabo on Tuesday! Need restaurant help please.

My husband and I are going to Cabo for the first time to celebrate our 40th birthdays. He doesn't want to schedule all our time, but agreed to let me make reservations for two of our four nights for dinner. I already have a reservation at Edith's! We are staying at the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Spa near Los Cabos, so we probably won't be heading over to San Jose for dinner on this trip. I am trying to decide between La Fonda, La Golondrina (official "Trailer Park") and Mi Casa, which have all been recommended to me. Which of these restaurants should I make my other reservation? Other places we "must" go to?

Thank you!

I am trying to pick someplace I haven't been, which eliminates both Lucques and Jar. Any other votes as to Grace or Josie?

Rehearsal Dinner Venue, SM

If it's still in business, LA Farm on Olympic Blvd. We had our rehearsal dinner there and the room was lovely. It was many years ago, so not sure of the price range.

What about an art and culture theme and set something up with the Getty? I don't know if they do events in the evening.

Sushi Spot on Ventura, and Corbin, Tarzana

I've never eaten at Sushi Spot. I have had mediocre to bad sushi at Brothers Sushi, although I know many people that love this place. I think Shibuya has excellent sushi. The setting is nothing, but the fish is super fresh and delicious.

Josie or Grace

There will be 6 people for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. I think I've narrowed down the choice to either Josie or Grace, but would love help deciding which to go to. My husband and I look for great food, with an interesting menu (the kind where it's tough deciding what to order), and top service. Atmosphere is also important. We don't get a chance to go out to this type of meal that often, so I want to make a great choice where the food can't miss. The other couples are family. One couple could be described as "foodie" or "gourmet" and enjoy eating at top restaurants around the world. They enjoy 4-5 hour tasting menus and fine wines. The other couple is more basic food choice type people, not very adventurous. I am selecting the restaurant. The more conservative food people will be paying for the meal. These restaurants are probably the top dollar amount I can go in selecting a restaurant. A few other places had interesting menus and great ratings for food, but seem to trendy, crowded, or loud for this group.

Thank you for your input!
