RAKU Omakase Yay or Nay ? (required due to 6 person party)

I called to make dinner reservations, and due to a party of six, they required me to pick $60 - $75 - or $100 omakase.

I chose the $75 since its a very late dinner (after show)

I've had ala carte before, but not the omakase.

Should I just pick another restaurant?

Thanks.

James Beard Taste America MORIMOTO Event - Has Anyone Ever Been?

I got vip tickets through chase sapphire credit card for $100 each, when on the website VIP tickets are $250.

Its @ the Mirage at the end of September.

I have never been to one of these James Beard Events. Are they good? Are they worth it?

Reason I ask, is because we are there that weekend for my wifes bday, and would consider not going if its not worth it.

I searched google for pics of past events, but only came across a few pics?

charlie palmer steak vs del friscos

I have reservations for both this weekend And cant decide which one to go to.

My favorite steak experience ever in vegas was at craftsteak but have been there 3x and wanted to try something different.

Del friscos is #1 on yelp which worries me. And my friend said while good, DF has the ambiance of an Outback.

Plus CP cut of the week menu this week looks amazing!!

How Much pp @ Bazaar

hungry afterwards? is that the norm.. or is that because normally DINE(anything) week means smaller prefixe menus..

thanks.

How Much pp @ Bazaar

i'm asking because i was designated to choose a restaurant for a party of 8..

I was gonna say providence, but when i was there two weeks ago (and i wouldnt mind going back) it was $600 for two.. and I didnt want to subject members of the party to pay for more than they could handle.. (of course we had the 15 course chef menu, and wouldnt want to do the a la carte this time around )

so i made a reservation at bazaar.. their website isnt very informative.. is it about $150 PP? after food / drinks / tip / tax ??

Pizzeria Mozza, Newport Beach - has anyone been?

i have not been, but am interested in hearing replies.. i have wife dinner reservations for a group (MAX 7???) on Sept 30.

Have been wanting to try forever, but never felt like hiking to LA for a pie.

*****On a side note, can anyone help me on ordering? I looked at the menu, and I literally want to order something from every section of the menu.

Are the portions big? what would be good for 7 people? Whats a good general rule? two people per pizza? and bunch of sides to share? cause everything looks so good from the LA YELP reviews.

Dilemma.. Have Reservation @ E by J. Andres, but Concert @ 7PM

I got a confirmation email by E' this morning that I have two tickets if I want them for Friday 9/23 - so I have 48 hours to confirm...

Problem is.. How long is the dinner.. I have to be @ the MGM grand for a concert by 7pm... I dont mind missing one hour, so that gives me till 8pm.. (its the IHEARTRADIO concert, so I would miss Janes Addiction and probably Kelly Clarkson)

Can anyone chime in on if I would make it??

Pre Concert - JOEL R, or LE Cirque (open to suggestions)

if E gets me a seat, i'll miss the first hour of my concert.... who needs to see janes addiction? J/K

4 hours???? for the six course??.. I spoke with the MGM rest resv staff, and they said I should be able to fit in the 6 course pre-fixe.. obviously she was wrong.. hmm seating at 530, and show at 730, i dont mind missing the first band, but still doesnt seem like enough time... if i remember correctly the MGM theatre is quite a hike as well ... a good 30mins thru the casino/hotel...

Pre Concert - JOEL R, or LE Cirque (open to suggestions)

Heading to the IHEARTRADIO concert in September.. Le Atelier is booked, so only choice left is the main Robuchon... and I will not be able to fit in the 16 course dinner before the concert, so I booked at Le Cirque for the time being..

What are my options / pricing ? at Robuchon? Like I said, I do not have 3-4 Hours..

Thanks.

Best LONG BEACH restaurant.

Wife's Bday is coming up.

I'm tired of driving to Laguna for a nice "HIP" dinner. Some places we have enjoyed.. been to Nicks Laguna (good) Sapphire (good) Kya (very good)......

and We went to Old Vine Cafe (great!!!), last year for her bday, and WE LOVED IT.

Anything similar in Long beach.. Want to head north on the 405 this time instead of south.

Thanks.

One bottle of champagne for 9 People?

I was given a bottle of really expensive champagne.

I have a dinner party tomorrow for a party of 9.

Would a normal bottle of champagne "fill" 9 champagne flutes.

Or should I not even serve it?

Thanks.

"If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up."

Champagne to start off a nice meal at restaurant?

the way i figure it, it's a special occasion... so i'd like to bring a bottle and just pay the corkage $
costco has a bottle of 2000 DP for $120.. is that ok?

Champagne to start off a nice meal at restaurant?

Would a nice bottle of champagne be a good way to start off a nice meal at a restaurant? It should go well with oysters and amuse bouches right?

Also, what are some nice one?

Is DP just hype? or is it worth it?
