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

time will tell.

if i can walk in at 11:30pm on a Tuesday, get a croque and a cocktail and both taste great, I'm not gonna complain.

assuming the pricing is reasonable...

Raku vs Yusho

it was the equivalent of 2 standard size tsukune balls, so unless it used to be a giant tsukune-pop, I felt it was an appropriate size.

“You go to Petit Trois for a plate of food and a cocktail, not a long tasting menu or a bunch of small plates – a real dish on a single plate.”

It is an interesting concept, many times this is exactly what I'm looking for.

Well that, and easy reservations.

Raku vs Yusho

Thank you hounds for the Raku suggestion. Even after the $40 in cab rides I thought the meal was a great value.

Super hits - agedashi tofu, foie gras chawanmushi, pork cheek

Minor miss - tsukune. I get that it's hodori chicken and all but the lollipop nature of their serving meant less surface area for charred goodness and tare.

I recall hearing they will no longer make anything bigger than a 4x4 after that 100x100 came out. Anyone confirm or deny?

Why wouldn't they just move to another spot in the SGV?

Sherman Oaks dining 'renaissance' - will it draw Angelenos?

Fedco, now there's a name I haven't heard in a while.

The Fedco in Costa Mesa became a target too.

Guerrilla Tacos: Enough to Turn a Meat-Eater Vegetarian?

"The other ones you mentioned, using fresh vegetables, while again I lack the expertise to speak definitively on the matter, I'm sure tacos and quesadillas made with fresh, seasonal vegetables are not unheard of in Mexico"

see AB in Baja where he feasts on zucchini blossom tacos on hand made blue corn tortillas. Not sure if it was "No Reservations" or "The Layover".

Samosa House Sunset

Negative - heard mixed reviews for their south indian cuisine. After 13 days in Mumbai I don't think I'm going to eat Indian food again anytime soon.

DineLA Summer 2014 Picks (7/14-7/27)

Wifey went to Warren's Blackboard for their dine la lunch ($15), she and her dining partner report a great meal

http://www.warrensblackboard.com/wp-c...

she had:
Stone Crab Melt, Tomato Jam, Pepper Jack, Grilled Sourdough Bread
Watermelon Salad, Humbolt Fog, Watercress, Hazelnuts, Aged Sherry,
Honey Vinaigrette, Fruit Cart Seasoning

Mains come with a side (salad, soup, or fries). She got the fries but clearly the best $$$ is the soup which was potato leek on that day.

The sandwich alone is $14. So it looks to be about a ~$6 savings

thanks. we got a prime time res for 2 next week. I've eaten nothing but Indian food for the past 10 days, so my body is hungry for Japanese.
