Kobe Cheeseburger and Carrot Cake !

Hey Nosh: Finally got the chance and remembered to try Nook Bistro per your recommendation back in Oct.'08. Wow ! Spectacular burger. I think they said the beef was called "Sterling Silver". It was not Kobe. Delicious ! I had a chocolate mousse-like dessert that knocked my socks off with a cup of coffee ! Thanks for the recommendation ! Next up, Philly West, also per your recommendation !

CUT 'Wagyu' Rib Eye

Hey Ipsedixit ! Thanks for that amazing set of comments ! How do you feel about Wagyu Cheeseburgers... ? Just kidding !

I am going to take your recommendation about Wagyu and take a pass on Cut right now and set that money aside for my 401k as you also suggested. I think I also want to see a smackdown brawl between true Japanese Wagyu vs. American Wagyu.

Bon Appetit !

CUT 'Wagyu' Rib Eye

A friend of mine said earlier this month re the Rib Eye at CUT in Beverly Hills:

"CUT was amazing, I had the American Wagyu Rib-Eye and it was spectacular, highly recommended! ".

Kobe Cheeseburger and Carrot Cake !

Thanks very much ! I will try them both. Tried Spark Woodfire Grill on W. Pico, just west of Beverly Drive, last nite, in former space of fabled Orsini's. Although the kobe burger was tasty I won't be going back anytime soon.

Hey Nosh:

Thanks for your comments. All sound ! Hey ! Where are Nook and Philly West ?

Yes, R+D is owned by same corp. you mentioned. The burger at R+D is quite tasty.
Not as big as at LITERATI II, though. But bring a camera. It's a work of art. The presentation is special ! The service was outstanding the evening I was there:
friendly and sincere. No tude. I was rather surprised, actually.

Thanks !


Kobe Cheeseburger and Carrot Cake !

At LITERATI II in West Los Angeles at corner of Bundy and Wilshire. Burger is a MONSTER !
The Carrot Cake is INCOMPARABLE ! Service is fine, typical l.a.

If it's GREAT SERVICE you want, however, do not pass go, head directly to R + D KITCHEN in Santa Monica on Montana Ave., in the former space for many years of Wolfgang Puck's Cafe, but more recently a couple of unsuccessful eateries. The Cheeseburger at R+D is prepared by an artist, e.g., it's Perfect ! Bring a camera ! Fries are a treat too in the sundae-stemesque cup wrapped in wax paper. Carrot Cake not nearly as good as at LITERATI II. The service is EXCEPTIONAL, however ! Run, don't walk if you are desperate to be treated with sincerity
and smiles and kindness.

Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

It's gotta be WELL DONE. Brown to almost burnt. Toss and flip so both sides get the same browning. Liquidity mac to be avoided at all costs. At Broadway Deli tell em to burn it and then flip it and then burn it again !
