3 hrs to kill

honestly?

pretty much anything. just don't want to waste an opportunity to have something San Fran specific.

3 hrs to kill

in town for business. don't have to be anywhere until 3 or so. staying in Fisherman's Wharf area. hungry. clueless.

please advise.

Tama Sushi (Studio City) - Still good?

go's generally does take a while - simply because it's just the man himself working the fish at all times. as for the quality, still stellar.

ISO "Big Time" Dinner on Sunday Night

knowing this guy - "big time" means "not quite providence. definitely not urusawa".

i'd say very good food with a healthy serving of LA style.

got a table at spago to be safe and will take any further hound advice very seriously.

out of curiosity, what would a tasting for 2 at spago run us?

What is your favorite flavor at SCOOPS?

i thought the idea of bacon caramel was actually better than the execution.

just enjoyed a little strawberry madeira this afternoon.

Go's Mart Review with Pictures

i've had a very satisfying mini omakase there - without drinks - and gotten out of there for around $75, including tip.

just kind of keep a rough tally in your head as he goes, and you can keep things on the reasonable side of expensive.

Best Miso-Glazed Black Cod?

nobu malibu's version is pretty darn good. i'm partial to the off-the-menu version - smaller pieces served in lettuce cups with some sort of filo-like noodle crunchy thing on top.

nesselrode pie

not sure, but it has inspired a lifelong quest. apparently a lot of whipped cream, rum and little candy thingies.

the brooklyn hook up will help when he gets back to NY, but i'd love to surprise him while he's visiting LA. any advice would be much appreciated.

uWink???

i hit this place last week with my 5 year old twins.

the salad i had was average at best and the overall gimmick was totally lost on me.

Mozza - Lunch?

last week i walked in @ 5 to find both a completely patron free bar and counter w/only 2 people sitting there.

guess it's hit or miss on the times.

Go's Mart Sushi, Canoga Park - a little long

i have never had a meal at go's where i didn't want to sleep in the parking lot so i could be there when he opened the next day.

it's best to go early and get his undivided attention at the bar. i've been lucky enough to score a few one-on-one omakases there and have never enjoyed a sushi meal more.

not technically sushi, but the sauteed shrimp cut roll is very tasty and addicting.
