BEST Sangria??

The Courtyard in Hollywood and Primitivo in Venice both serve pretty decent Sangria and both serve Tapas/Small plates

Update on Ford's Filling Station

What's the story with Tender Greens? Never been. Sorry if there's already been some earlier talk about it.

Thanks to all of you who gave suggestions without being defensive. We're just not that familiar with the valley, as work keeps us close to home. As I thought, there doesn't seem to be much in Woodland Hills, but plenty of places close.The tips will be helpful.

Update on Ford's Filling Station

Maybe we'll give it another try. We went 2 weeks after opening and had a mediocre experience. We watched the bartender pour us the wrong glass of wine and then he argued with us about it. At the table, it took them 15 minutes to find the bottle of wine we ordered. We were 1/2 way thru our apps when it came. The server and manager were nice and apologetic, maybe they've gottn the kinks working out. Hope so, as I've heard that Ben Ford is a good guy.

Went to Bin 8945, Great!

My husband and I went to Bin 8945 on Santa Monica & Robertson and thought it was great! We sat at the bar and the bartender, Damian, was more knowledable than most servers we encounter. Every dish we had was good, which is rare in LA. We wanted to try a few different wines, so he split the glasses in 2 for us so we could both try them. Most bartenders don't want the extra work. The place was packed (after write-ups last Wed & Thurs in the LA Times).

"Tart??"

Heard Claude left Tart upon opening, and they've already lost their 2nd Chef.
