Takeout from upscale restaurants?

Thank you guys for replying. I had heard that the higher-end restaurants frowned on takeout and some just flat out don't offer it, but from reading your posts I've some sense knocked into me: It shouldn't be a problem. Thanks.

Takeout from upscale restaurants?

I'm having a bad day. I want to curl up on my couch in my PJs and just stare blankly at my television. All night. Trouble is, the only thing that would really cheer me up is the pot roast at Jar or Tracht's, a pizza and butterscotch budino from Mozza or even the salmon tartare cones from The French Laundry (I'm dreaming, I know). It's a night where not just any takeout meal will do.

So here's my question: Do any of the upscale, heavy-hitting restaurants offer any sort of takeout at all?

Help! Need last-minute birthday cake in OC

I need a b-day cake by tomorrow (Feb. 7) and I don't want to go to a supermarket to get one. Are there any independent bakeries in OC that would have regular, non-custom cakes that they can just write "happy birthday" on and call it a day? It seems as if all the ones I've contacted need 3 days notice for a cake.

Thanks for reading the post!

THAI NAKORN BURNED DOWN!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!

Guys, from the OC Register:

By KIMBERLY EDDS
The Orange County Register
GARDEN GROVE– Fire crews are mopping up the remains of an early-morning fire that destroyed a favorite haunt of Thai food fans.

Flames broke out just before 2 a.m. at Thai Nakorn in the 12500 block of Garden Grove Boulevard, Capt. Edward Gallegos of Metronet said.

Known for its crispy catfish salad and spicy tom yum kah gai and tom yum king soups, Thai Nakorn has drawn rave reviews from Thai fans since it opened 20 years ago.

Mozza

I'm going Sunday! It took me an hour on Monday morning to secure a reservation. I hope it's worth it.
