The Basics: How to Make Shrimp Pasta

You could add 1/2 cup Ricotto cheese to thicken. Love this pasta, nice and light.

Firm Xmas Lunch, 20 ppl, Sherman Oaks to Woodland Hills?

I had a B-day brunch at Cafe Bazoo on Ventura in Sherman Oaks. I think they have good food. The place is small, but European and nice. Pinot Bistro is another French Restaurant on Ventura blvd. Emilio's on Ventura is another pretty good place.
Many small Restaurants line Ventura Blvd. For a larger fancier one, try Mortons in woodland Hills.

Hi. New to LA and looking for a good place in Santa Monica (entress below $30) any favs?

I love South of the Border on 4th St. in Santa Monica. Two famous female chef's have owned it for years. i have had lunch there many times...their turkey tostada is great. The price is not out of line, and the food terrific. Chinois on Main is also great, but a little more pricey.

I am new and I need to take a visitor someplace amazing!!! Help!!!

I have eaten at the Ivy on Melrose This restaurant is very trendy, great food, hip and very L.A. During the summer they have 1/2 off on Monday nights. You might want to call, and see if it is still available. i love this place, it has it all. You need a reservation.
