Best gourmet ice cream and patisserie?

Sprinkles Ice Cream in Beverly Hills is the best - made from Strauss milk, pure delicious flavors.

Coolhaus is good too, especially for the liquor flavors. Their storefront is in Culver City, with a new one opening in Pasadena soon.

Mexican Birrieria in Los Angeles

Without a doubt, Gish Bac, Crenshaw and Washington. They only serve it on the weekends though.

Best Lobster Roll in Los Angeles area?

I've seen it there on Sundays too - call first. I used to think BP Oysterette was the best, but Joan's is awesome. I think it was $18.

Miracle-Mile chow

Ngoma is good for pan-African, and India's Tandoori is decent (both on Wilshire). Neither are amazing, but they are tasty with reasonable prices.

Does anyone know of anything good to eat near USC? "Ethnic" foods preferred.

When is Crumbs bakery opening in Larchmont?

After seeing postings for free cupcakes on opening day of May 29, went to check it out on Sunday, and the sign said "will open week of June 1."
