Petit Trois, No Reservations, No Phone, No Cash & No tipping...

Great call. You can get a 3 course meal at Papilles for less than the price of steak and frites at Petit Trois and have an actual table to eat your food.

Fukurou - New Ramen Place in East Hollywood

I drove by this place and noticed it. Didn't know it was actually run by japanese people. Place was dead empty from what i could see from the road. Glad you liked it. I will check it out next time i'm craving some ramen. Can't handle the crowds at Silver Lake Ramen anymore.

Oh wow, those prices are so not in line with what I was expecting with this concept restaurant. Casual bistro my ass.

so basically, they are charging full service white tablecloth prices for barstool seats only type of place. ugh so over this Ludo crap.

I want to try this place and I think I will like it. Just can't get myself to deal w/ the hassle of waiting and fighting crowds to get a good meal.

yeah i thought that was odd too as Grimaldi's is known for their crispy crust. Nothing soggy about their crust.

Report: Desano's Pizza in East Hollywood

Glad you liked it. I've been eating here way too often for my waistline's liking. But I just love it. Can't wait for them to get their booze license so that I can finally enjoy the pizza with some good red vino.

Fun upbeat restaurants in Beverly Hills?

Good list although I've never considered Bouchon as a "fun scene".

Alimento Silver Lake

We were there Friday night as well and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The chicken liver mousse was one of the best I've had w/ their freshly baked bread (same bread as sotto). Perfect combination.

The tortellini as you mentioned was amazing, but I thought the squid ink pasta was even better!

The pork in a bun was a big hit at our table as well, although a bit pricey for what it is.

I enjoyed their rather affordable wine list and it's refreshing to not see 3x markup on wines. Most bottles are within the $40-60/bottle range.

Only complaint would be that the pasta portions were rather small for the price. You basically got a few bites of each dish if you were sharing w/ 3 other people as were.

Glad to have them in our neighborhood and will definitely be back to try the other dishes.

I drive by this place everyday on my home. I never see more than 2-3 tables occupied at around 8pm. Don't see this place lasting very long.

IVY ROBERTSON - OVER IT

point i was trying to make is that a host doesn't/shouldn't have the power to decide who gets to eat at the restaurant or not (assuming there are tables open). if the owner decides that he doesn't want to serve a particular customer, so be it. it's his business.

IVY ROBERTSON - OVER IT

why do barely over minimum wage workers feel like they have the right to treat customers this way? I wonder how the owners would feel reading your post? I would fire them on the spot. There is absolutely no upside to this business by having a host like this.

People complain about how nightclub doorman have similar attitudes, but I understand why that happens at nightclubs. They want to be selective in who they let in so that they remain a "hot spot", but for restaurants, this makes no business sense.
