where to buy restaurant quality prime rib to cook at home in LA?

the prime prime rib @ costco is good, but not always available. they're usually in a blue styrofoam.

Four Seasons (Doheny) or Trump's National Golf for brunch?

How do they compare to St. Regis Monarch Beach? Thanks!

do you know if they have a wine pairing for the gamut?

going to providence for the first time

get the chef's menu. if you see something you like ala carte you can add it to the chef's menu at an additional price, if isn't already on the tasting menu. we did this for the kobe steak last time. we also substituted the cheese portion of the menu for an extra dessert. good stuff. :)

The IRON CHEF Tasting Menu - Providence [Review] w/ Pics!

is it me or does the 'iron chef tasting menu' seem smaller than the 'chef's tasting menu'? do you have to request the 'iron chef tasting menu' ahead of time?

great review as always!
