Eating around USC

if your a student @ SC, el cholo on western is 1/2 off with ID on weekdays.
29 is also a good place to pick up a pint.

Hatfield's or Providence*?

looking to go either prov. or hatfield's.. but sounds like Prov has the upper hand...
being able to do a wine paring at hatfield's is tempting tho. ( gets a bit too $ at prov. w/ the seven course for me)

Hatfield's or Providence*?

A once a year event for me.

I have been to Providence a few times. so I want to try Hatfield's this time instead..but at the same time, very hard to step away.

any suggestions?

i do enjoy drinking also so, prov chef's menu w/o wine or hatfield's w/ wine.

Downtown & Romantic

water grill can be fun with the oyster bar. flavors from the main menu feels light after Cimarusti left.
Cicada is a good choice. I'd head either to the sushi bar or tempura bar @ thousand cranes..the kaiseki has hit/miss days.

What do Chowhounds do for a living (besides eat of course)? [old]

I am an architect...4 years out of school. I don't have a TV or Internet at home, and only buy what I need. The $$ I save goes straight to good food.

Furaibo favorites?

the grilled onigiri chazuke at the end of the meal is great. tofu salad and fried tofu (agedashi tofu) is a must.

Shibucho (OC) on a Sunday: Open? OK?

don't there is room for more than 2 doz ppl. but make sure and reserve a seat at the counter.
he'll let you know if the fish isn't worth serving. but don't expect him to make a spicy tuna roll or anything of the kind. try his anago and also the tamago if your in luck...very good

bring your own sake/wine in LA

we've been going to our usual sushi bar that allowed us to bring our own bottle of sake after we got comfortable with the chefs.
wondering if there are other places where we can bring our own finds without feeling guilty or building a relationship.

suggestions for BYO-wine place with no/low corkage would be great too.

Napa Valley - port wine

[The Chowhound Team moved this post from the Wine Board because of its location specific nature.]

I’ll be going to Napa this weekend and would like to bring back some port style wine. Was a fan of the Buena Vista ports from Sonoma, but are no longer in production.

Also suggestions for lunch/dinner would be great too…(nice but not pricey)

thanks
