Delivery in the Eagle Rock area?

Just wondering if anybody knows of any good restaurants that deliver to the Eagle Rock area. I just had a baby last week and now realize that my neighborhood is really slim on delivery options, unless I am missing something. Thai Spirit is good, and Brownstone Pizza now delivers, which is awesome. Panang, Italianos, Sicha Siam and Thai Eagle Rox deliver and they are fair in a pinch, but that's about all I know. Please let me know if you have any other ideas! If not Eagle Rock proper, maybe even something from Glendale, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Highland Park or Mt. Washington would stretch to deliver to my neighborhood if you have any ideas. Thank you!!

Anyone been to Cristal Room? Suggestions for 40th bday dinner

I have no personal experience there, but was also researching the Crystal Room for a special dinner and found this on the Travel+Leisure site:

Cristal Room Baccarat
PARIS
Most restaurants attached to brand names are worth avoiding for the homogeneity they inevitably deliver. The Cristal Room Baccarat is the sumptuously appointed exception to this rule: the Empire-chic interior is the work of Philippe Starck (the raw brick-and-gilt walls are not to be overlooked); chef Thierry Burlot changes his refined Gallic menu on a monthly basis; and at dinner the room is suffused with the exquisite glow cast by candelabra and, of course, Baccarat chandeliers. T+L TIP Step into the 10-seat, terraced private dining room to view the first black-crystal chandelier Baccarat ever created.
DINNER FOR TWO $268; HOTEL DE NOAILLES, 11 PLACE DES √ČTATS-UNIS; 33-1/40-22-11-10

hope that helps.

Eloping in Paris in May-- dinner rec in the 1st or 4th (Marais, Les Halles, etc.) requested

Still looking for something in the 1st or 4th arrondissements. St. Germain or the Latin Quarter could work as well. thanks!

Thank you! Le Dome du Marais looks lovely. Allard in St. Germain was also suggested. And the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz for champagne beforehand. If anybody has opinions about those places, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

Looking for a traditional, neighborhood bistro or brasserie for a Saturday dinner after the ceremony. There will just be four of us, so a small place would be fine. It does not need to be super fancy. We are most interested in great food and a warm, inviting atmosphere and friendly staff. I have found a lot of great posts about these areas so far, but if anything stands out to you, your recommendations would be much appreciated.

oh, also recommendations for nearby places to have a glass of champagne, either before or after dinner, would be great. Thank you!!!
