Fuddruckers Santa Monica (Again)

Line out the door and around the corner today at about noon. I imagine the office workers and hospital / rehab centers / retirement home workers nearby are happy for something new. Lots of scrubs in that line.

Favorite burger for $5 or less?

Definitely Big Jo's. I love their patty melt, too

No Corkage on Westside

Some of the Hillstone restaurants have no corkage - at least for the first bottle, and then minimal after that. It's case by case now (used to be all of their restaurants).

Ingo's in Santa Monica (in old Callahan's space)

Yes, the website clearly states that they are closed on Tuesdays. Seems to be permanent.

Greek Theater Picnic Baskets

The Greek doesn't lend itself well to picnicking, not like the Bowl does. Few tables, and those tables share space with the smoking section.

Los Angeles Restaurants good for Sunday Brunch for a Large Group?

Where in LA? In Santa Monica: Michael's, Fig, Penthouse all do baby shower brunches.

Also tell us your budget. Having a baby shower is different than asking for a Sunday Brunch spot for a large group. Showers tend to be loud, last for hours - not all restaurants are accommodating.

Like you, was walking past. Have seen many soft opening posts here, the A-Frame one from a few years ago went for pages and pages.

Will fully review food and service when properly up and running, just wanted to give the heads up that it's soon to open and give an idea of decor and menu. For a soft opening, it was truly one of the most organized and professional and consistent I've been to, so have high hopes.

Went to Friends and Family this weekend, place officially opens on Wed night. Have to say, food was consistently excellent, service outstanding. Same owners as Misfit, so their bar/drink menu is outstanding. Something called The Good Doctor drink will get me back there quickly (vodka, chili, and a mix of cucumber, kale, celery, and apple juice).

Had the filet and the chili garlic broccoli, very good.

They've kept the integrity of the mid-century design of Callahan's (built in '48, I think), kept the counter for the bar, kept the formica tables and booths. It's loud, but enjoyable. A nice addition to the neighborhood - one that's teeming with restaurants in a quarter mile area.

Menu is mostly chops, beef, some grilled seafood, and a wonderful variety of greens.

What about it? Are you asking where to go for ice cream in Santa Monica?

A: Sweet Rose Creamery

Fajita Chicken tostada is great. Chicken taquitos are the best comfort food in LA. My default when I'm exhausted and just need something savory are those chicken taquitos.

Top 5 Downtown L A?

I would head to Maccheroni Republic, it's in your budget and very close to the Chandler.

Friends from out of state moved to Venice CA. Looking for authentic Chinese food Locally?

Formerly California Wok on Wilshire just east of Bundy is about as close to SGV you'll get, without going to SGV. A new chef from SGV took over about 6 months ago.

Venice has some pretty terrible Chinese restaurants.

Also add: Bar Hayama on Sawtelle.

Mastro's - Best location?

It's not grim at all, there are lights pointing at the ocean, and you can clearly see the waves break, with the whitewash catching the light beautifully.

Mastro's - Best location?

Quality is the same at all, as is service. There are no variations that I've seen, none at all. Malibu has the nicest location, thanks to the view.
