Love Creme Caramel! Best Ube Upside Down Pie EVER! A pleasure to have in the neighborhood. They also get fantastic trucks every week for their Food Truck Fridays from 5-9pm

Just tried Bills (Bill and Hirikos) and was VERY impressed. The burgers were perhaps my favorite in the entire valley. But closed on weekends so my husband never gets to try them!!!

Love all of these recs. How about local-ish less pricey sushi spots or even take-out or delivery sushi spots? I know Farm Boy and definitely love it - but would love a few more options!

Never been a huge fan of Belwood, but maybe I'm not getting the right things.

ANy recs on specific dishes at Le Petit? I used to go to the one on La Cienega. Have you been to the Sherman Oaks location recently?

Great recs! Would you say everything is good at Star Falafel? I'm also a big shwarma, baba ganouj and Israeli salad fan. Have you tried these there?

Need recs for fun and delicious dinner for 7 adults and 2 kids (5 and 7) this Sat. night, brunch on Sat. and Sun.

Coming in from L.A. We are eating at a friend's house on Friday night, but all 9 of us will be having brunch/lunch and dinner together on Saturday and Brunch on Sunday. Looking for the best cuisine in the best atmosphere for around 50 dollars a person - not including wine. We are seeing LOVE at the Mirage on Saturday night at 9:30 so we probably need to eat dinner around 6. Staying at the Westin on Flamingo just off the strip. We rented a minivan so can easily drive and valet anywhere.

Views of dancing fountains and/or gondolas and other fun visuals are a plus. The adults are adventurous foodies, our kids are not. But they are very well behaved! French and Italian always work for them - as does mexican and thai. Would love to get a delicious but not too expensive seafood platter for all to share at at least one meal!

Canter's or Langer's For Pastrami

As my 2 year old daughter says, "Are you kidding me"? Langer's without a single thought or question.

Where to find Breadbar bread/pastries besides Breadbar

Okay - there's 3rd and Century City. And Cafe Luxe and Intelligentsia. Where else? Anywhere in the valley? Sherman Oaks, perchance?

Take the Cannoli ... but from where?

This is not a Victor Benes in Gelsons - I never said that. It is a separate bakery inside Gelson's Tarzana that makes the best cannolis ever. They are not part of Gelsons or part of Victor Benes - they simply have a bakery inside Gelsons - therefore you can't find them anywhere but there.

And these are not classic Italian cannolis. You won't find those here. These are the best version of American cannoli in my opinion. The shell and the filling are delicious. Nuff said.

3 days with Baby on Union Street

My husband and I are taking a quick vacation to SF with our 1 year old daughter and staying at our friend's house on the corner of Union and Steiner.

We will be there from x-mas day through the 27th and would love any suggestions of chowish food within walking distance that's also kid friendly.

I know it's a lot to ask - but figured it's SF - there's good food almost everywhere. Take out is fine too if need be.

All types of cuisine.

THANKS!

healthy and delicious dinner for 8-10 at home - sherman oaks

I want to have a small dinner party at my house for a recently married couple. I have a new baby and no time to cook but would love it to seem homemade. Any suggestions - I'd love it to cost less than 25 per person.

Thanks
