Gino's East? Please tell me this isn't what Chicago DDP is all about (review)

Shame on Gino's. I grew up with them when their original spot was in a dark, cramped building next to Northwestern Hospital. They were the best in the 70's and 80's. But then they sold out, became greedy, and stopped caring if some twenty something screwed up the water to flour ratio. They are a joke among locals now, having betrayed their cab driver roots. Stick with Lou's and Due's.

Anyone remember Mariscos Chente pre-LAT review?

Horrible. Went there a few weeks ago and the snook was rotten. shame on them for even serving it.

good lunch in santa monica

3 Square is tops. Great value for the price, excellent baked bread...best tuna burger around.
Also, check out Amelia's on Main Street. It's a tiny little spot that (IMHO) serves the best meatball sandwich in LA.
Bay Cities serves a passable sub sandwich but doesn't hold a candle to similar places in SF or Chicago. It's also dirty, poorly run and ugly.

Pane Vino on Beverly

Despite my objections, I'm going to Pane Vino on Friday. I've never found a winner on their menu, but am curious to hear thoughts on what's the best dish.
