Tub's Chili in Culver City

Been there a few times. It's soooooo good. Have had the steak chili and the vegetarian chili. Love love love them. Anyone else had other flavones? Can't get that stuff put of my head.

Ideas for my college son and his girlfriend...5 days in Paris in June. Calling all you romantics out there!

My son is graduating from college in a few weeks and as a graduation gift he is going to Paris (and Capri!!!!) with his girlfriend.

I would appreciate any suggestions for great restaurants (where wouldnt feel out of place...and out of pocket too much)....

for all your romantics out there....any ideas???

P.S. So you know he is a romantic...and a great son..the last time he was in Paris...for just 2 days...he went to Laduree and Berlin, Dallas and home to LA.

So I am hoping for some great ideas.
Merci!

hi all,
A friend and in love papa Christos....so good, so much meat...and if we stay away from the bread, it is soooo healthy.

But we canny meet on Mondays....can't do another el cholo....it's not a margarita lunch and el cholos food is far from healthy.

Looking for good lunch places by Pico and Western...or within 5 miles of that area,,,but not downtown

you are right on the 5 miles equals ! hour...or more just to drive that in bad traffic.
let's say less than 2 miles. need: easy to park around, healthy food and not too spicy, less than $15 out the door, sit down eating...without a long wait for a table.

Looking for good lunch places by Pico and Western...or within 5 miles of that area,,,but not downtown

we are trying to find places with easy parking and healthy food to meet for lunch in that area.

We love Papa Christos (lots of tables, easy parking, quick in and out) and tolerate El Cholo...but hoping there are gems around and about where a fellow co-worker and I can meet up to "talk work" and eat during the workday.
Please help.

Tasting menu for birthday dinner

just ate last nite at orris on sawtelle. the "during the week" tastin gmenu was awesome and so reasonable...i think 25/person w/o wine but they have wine suggestions and so many wines by the glass
the carpaccio and the apple tarte tartin with ice cream and caramel sauce was incredible (actually EVERYTHING) was delicious as usual. they have the outdoor heated patio that would be a great spot to "take over"
