Where do you buy Wagyu steaks?

Vicente Foods Market in Brentwood on San Vicente carries Japanese Wagyu. Pricey, but really delicious!

PALATE - amazing new restaurant in glendale!!

I went to the most fantastic restaurant last night. At first I was a little daunted at the idea of traveling to Glendale from Brentwood, but it literally took 25 minutes on the freeway! Palate, food and wine is a new venture by the former chef/partner of Patina, Octavio Becerra. The food was amazing!! Fresh in house churned butter, pickled peaches, fennel and cippoline onions w/an assortment of salamis and cured meats that were so spectacular, my mouth is watering again as I'm writing this. We had a "cannoli" that was so light and delicate, it really should have a new name created just for its self. The stuffed zucchini blossoms were perfect as was the evo baked tuna and tender and succulent short ribs. Each course was served with a different wine that was chosen by the sommelier - his choices were spot on, interesting, and all were wines we've never had before. I unfortunately didn't bring a menu home, but I feel confident in saying that not one entree was over $20.00!!! You can really tell that this place is a labor of love. The vibe was warm, relaxed and fun and there was a real sense of pride in everyone that worked there - from the hostess to the waitress and on down. I don't think I've had a better meal in years!!! Just had to share :) Has anyone else eaten there yet????
