Lawry's Prime Rib - La Cienega - Excellent food and service

I despise that place. The decor is like being in a bad airport marriot dining room, in the early 80's .... yuk. I never ate there. We walked in and we walked right out when we saw the place.

Great Friday night culinary experience at Doug Arango's

I just had that Scallop dish at Doug Arango's this past Friday. It was delicious. I loved the risotto and the scallops were perfection. I started with the Tuna Appetizer. It was very spicy but great as well.( I wish I would have thought to have sake with it like you did Olivernyla)

Kung Pao Bistro-Studio City Review

I like the Studio City location way better than the Weho spot. I love their Twinkle Walnut Shrimp, (yeah I know the title is nuts but it is so good). It's a crispy shrimp dish with walnuts, broc, green beans and coated with a citrus mayo sauce. Fattening as hell Im sure but it is great every time. Have you ever tried it Carter Or Hypnotic23?

Chefs with balls (pehaps quite literally) in LA.

For game try the following:
Grace practically the entire menu is game, Spago has an excellent rabbit dish, Chaya has a great Venison Filet (It was better than any traditional filet I"ve EVER had), Doug Arango's has an awesome Duck breast sliced with cherry compote and also a Lamb tartare appetizer that was incredible, Sona has great Duck and Lamb

Pizzzza

I recently tried the pizza at Doug Arangos in weho and was pleasantly surprised. It's very thin crust which I love, but if your looking for thicker pizza you may not enjoy it. We had a great caesar salad and then opted for two pizzas. We had a shrimp pizza that was phenomenal and a margherita. The pizza is very light and you can eat an entire one. The restaurant is a little upscale but casual. I usually have fish dishes when I dine there and always enjoy them, but never had the pizza until last week. If you go, you have to try the shrimp pizza.

Zankou Chicken still downhill

The chicken at Zankou is plain with hardly any seasoning on the skin. It's pricey for what you get and very bland and the sides stink. California chix kitchen's chicken isn't much better but they at least have very good sides.

Your Fave NY Style Deli?

I think Jerry's sux. It's a chain and is way overpriced. If you want NY deli, you have to go to Canter's, Greenblatts or Nate and Al's.
Canter's has great corned beef and prune danish. Greenblatts is a little pricier but has great corned beef and awesome scalloped potatoes and the carrot cake is insane. Nate and Al's is my third choice, but not as good as the other two.
Where is Langer's? I've never heard of it.
