Maude: September's Tomato Dinner

that's a weird reason to not enjoy some great food, but to each his own...

Maude: September's Tomato Dinner

I've been twice and both times, left very satisfied but not overly stuffed. Unless your husband is a really big eater, I think you will be fine.

They do have a wine menu that also has some wines by the glass.

Report: Desano's Pizza in East Hollywood

They finally got their beer and wine license. Most bottles will be in the $20-30 range coming from Italy and CA. Beers will include some italian favorites along with local craft brews.

Go support them!

Game changer? Newport Seafood -> Beverly HIlls

I could be wrong, but SGV may also be $17.95/lb. I just know it had "17" in it.

friend wants to have dinner at bazaar - realistically, how much am i going to spend??

I've gotten out of there fairly satisfied at ~$100pp the few times I've been. It's not that bad.

Please let us know. If it's anywhere close to the $17/lb that they charge in SGV, this place is a no brainer to avoid the drive and lines.

Tacos Leo's now on the eastside!!!

I'm going to try the cabeza next time. saw someone else order them and it looked really good.

Anyone that has tried n/naka able to offer suggestions?

Providence would be a good choice if you want to stay in the LA area. The service is impeccable.

Best KBBQ if price were no object?

there's only two players in this contest. Parks and Chosun. For my money, I pick Park's everytime. Just think their meat quality is better.

Moving to Los Feliz from Seattle, Please Help.

Mexico City is simply awful. Anyone that thinks that's good mexican food has zero credibility.

Los Feliz might have one of the best butcher shops in the city, but doesn't come cheap. Check out McCall's Meats on Hillhurst.

As far as Farmer's Markets go, there is a Sunday morning market right in Los Feliz Village on Vermont. There's also one in Atwater Village on Sundays. Not sure which one is better.

For sushi, you will have to travel a bit. There's Sushi Kimagure in Pasadena, Sushi Zo and Q in downtown, or Shunji and Mori on the westside.

Not much turkish food around here that I'm aware of.

For best produce, I go to Gelson's in Silver Lake (not far from Los Feliz).

I don't want to this thread to get too off tangent, but eastside doesn't mean east of downtown. Just saying...

Amazing tacos indeed.

the famed Tacos Leo's truck on La Brea and Venice have recently set up shop on the corner of Glendale and Temple on the edge of Echo Park. It's not a truck but rather just a stand w/ the al pastor trompo and some flat top grills. Looks like they have the trompo out every night unlike the original location, which I believe only has it on weekend nights (I could be wrong).

Price is the same at $1/taco and the same salsa bar is offered. Tastes exactly the same.

We have it good in LA - for sushi

had another fantastic meal at Kimagure last night

Help!! N/Naka or Zo

this is the no brainer of the year. N/Naka by a landslide.

I wouldn't even pick Zo even if your friend just wanted straight up sushi, which is what Zo does.

Favorite sushi right now? With low price as a consern.

I work in South Bay and will check out Nozomi. Their uni bowl looks like a killer value.

Maude reservation

My guess is that even the restaurant doesn't know their september menu yet. Seems like a lot of people have a misconception that whatever the key ingredient is for that month, that ingredient is going to be the focal point of each dish. But it's totally not like that. Yes they do incorporate the ingredient in each dish, but for the most part, they are done very subtly. So i don't think it really matters what the ingredient is...just go because almost every dish they put out is excellent.
