ditto. they say sometimes 5 lbs or more, or 4 or more only, but they usually have ones in 3lb range too....it's quite a deal for what you get.

personally i like the one in santa ana a bit better. I believe they are non-affiliated, but the same essentially. ample jalapeno/chilis, roe etc fried up too with the lobster.

other dishes to get there are deep fried squid (very crunchy and nice), sauteed pea shoots, and the beef broth with bones which is usually a free app if you're splurging on lobster anyhow. if you're solo and a 3 lb lobster too much, they will do the house special lobster with prawns instead which is more than ample for one.

how are these italian steaks like chi spacca anyways? i tried some piedmont steak some years back and thought leaner and less fatty...price certainly dear

Yes. Cougars was charitable. Tube steak is an off menu item apparently there and at top hotel bars in 90210.

kevin, thor, are you fucking up the atmosphere for jess?

Lawrys ain't steak but a better place to celebrate where you are the king. Prime rib tasty and good for group.

The frankenketsup at beer belly is good. But Heinz hard to improve on.

I was skeptical about fish sauce but I love it. Favorite condiment for almost everything. Left over Chinese. Steak. Fruit and chili salsa. Don't fear
