Lunch in Venice area....?

i don't think it's open for lunch yet. i went there for dinner the night before it opened and had a strange experience. i wanted to order a bottle of wine and asked the waiter a question about the selection and he said he wasn't familiar with all the wines. Fine, it's new, so i asked if there was a beverage manager or some one else to help. instead of answering that question he went on to say oh that wine, it's this this and that (insert and wine descriptor words) i let it slide and just ordered the bottle we were thinking. about 10 minutes later he came back and started opening the wine and we noticed it was not what we ordered. oops. he left and no joke, 20 minutes later he came back and said he finally found it but alas he didn't have it with him. a few minutes later some some woman with a sour puss came over with the bottle already opened! no showing the label- no nothing. she just started pouring. i said whoa! can we even taste it? she said in the most snotty tone, so you want to taste the wine? who chose it? well i was stunned. i asked her if she was ok and if there is anything wrong. she just glared at me and started sighing and rolling her eyes. this was not a person that should be in contact with the public. i couldn't even tell if she actually worked there or was a girlfriend of someone involved. it really ruined the whole tone for the evening. and 20% tip was pre-added. not sure if it was for the pre-opening or that's how it's going to be. Maybe they know there are serious service problems?

Soup Searching

I've had a sore throat for more than a week now so it's time to get serious about finding some wonderful and nourishing soup. This would be consumed during a work lunch break in the Los Feliz/Silver Lake area. What are your best suggestions? TIA.

Has anyone seen me?

NO!!!! I can;t find it either!! at gelson's at least. They also used to carry it at Bob's in Santa Monica. Worth a call? This flavor is so good! People either detest it or love it. I'm in the love camp. I've also bought it years ago at that market off Beverly Glen in that mini-mall with the deli but I think it has since closed.

Where is a good place to buy smoked whitefish in Santa Monica area?

Nate and Al's. Lenny's Deli. Most any Jewish style deli has appetizing in the deli case that they cut to order.

Lindy and Grundy Closed!

Not surprising. McCall's, Belcampo, Cut Above. Harvey Guss. Not to mention all the kosher butchers. I don't think there is a shortage of high quality butchers in LA.
