Any good recommendations to restaurants that serve this in the Los Angeles area? Does not have to be limited to Spanish preparation. Thanks!

abacus tasting menu or pick and choose

I love abacus and honestly, you can't go wrong either way...Personally I would go with the Prix Fixe menu..You get a little of everything....A must try is the Lobster shooters with the coconut sake...Yumm...

Best Texas Wine

My search was strictly for wines that have received awards in Texas. I did not know that Fall Creek imported grapes from CA. Something to note....

For you wine drinkers out there....

I'm a pretty avid wine drinker... I found a place in Plano called Vin at the shops of Legacy that can order you a bottle(s) of Ridge Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains Santa Cruz Mountain Estate 2005. It's number 2 on wine spectator for 2007. Excellent chardonnay if you want to order a bottle they had like 25 left in their warehouse and you can request a bottle be sent to the store for pickup. Cheers!

Sushi in Plano

To just elaborate a little more on Sushi Awaji...They have shabu shabu which I have not seen at many restaurants in the area....I am really particular about sushi and this is the best that I have found in Plano...Their hamachi and toro was superb.

(DFW) Hawaiian?

My favorite there is the Chicken Katsu w/ Curry. But hands down the loco moco is my favorite. They have spam musubi (can you say awesome) Thank goodness I live in Plano and can't drive here everyday...It's not like the food in So Cal or Hawaii but I will take it while I am here!

Best of the Dallas Area

Vietnamese - Bistro B. A Cali restaurant that has landed here. You wont be disappointed. Large portions plus a " Super Bowl " pho if you are interested. Large portions. http://www.bistrobusa.com/

Japanese - Yutaka on Mckinney Ave hands down. Runner up Teppo for the Yakiotri and Spanish Mackarel Sashimi.

French - St Martins on Greenville...Nothing flashy or nouvelle just straight up classic French cooking. Fois Gras was pretty good standard but good. (For Dallas

)

Italian - I have not found a good italian restaurant to reccomend sorry =/

Chinese - There are many in teh richardson plano area as listed before...But the ones I mainly go to are 369 bbq on legacy and First Chinese BBQ all in Plano.

Mexican - I am from LA so tex mex does not appeal to me that much but one time after partying in Greenville I found this place called COQUITAS. Family owned homoe style mexican cooking and open pretty late. El fuego in Richardson has breakfast tacos and a buffet on the weekend as well.

Thai - Been to a few around the area but the best one for my taste buds is Banana Thai. Love their whole fried fish...Panang...Papaya Salad...all good. If you are feeling adventurous ask them to make your papaya salad Laos style!

Thai -

Hawaiian Food

Hello I just found out there is an L&L hawaiian barbecue here in North Dallas....They're address is 360 East FM. 3040, #850 Lewisville, TX 75067. IF you know what this is and you crave it go head over it's a nice change to the asian/pan asian food around North Texas..
