Stuck in the Gaslamp District. HELP!

haha..I grew up with cow brain "pane". Slices that were dredged in flour and bread crumbs, pan fried and served with lemon slices. I honestly think that most people would not be able to tell the difference from a med/soft pan fried tofu and would think..mmm this is creamy and the best tofu EVER!!

Thank you, great ideas.. Must be why La Valencia is all booked. Palm desert will have Coachella that weekend, so that is all booked. Will give this place a try and report back.

Thank you very much!! I appreciate the feedback! Will report back. Like I told my husband I do not need a reinvented wheel but would love a really good wheel. Sadly a French place without a foie dish seems underdressed. :(

Yes, he wants to have a cigar and was concerned it may be frowned upon at RSF inn, so we shall stay DT and he will pollute the air there.

Blue ribbon, Blue Ribbon, Blue ribbon !! Not claiming to be Neapolitan like pizza but it is fantastic. "staff favorite" is one of our favorites.

Thank you so much. We are in our early and late 40's so we are in the perfect age bracket!! I think I am looking for a good solid dining experience, does not have to be innovative, just tasty.
My other suggestions to the spousal unit was a repeat dinner at Addison.

Thank you, we have been to most of the CH darlings and always avoided this and really wondered why. Thought of trying Juniper and Ivy or the Ironstone Fish and oyster. Maybe the next day.

Soo, it is our anniversary in a couple of weeks. Is Mr. A's worth it?? Or do you go there just because and then you have eaters remorse. We were thinking of leaving N. County and pretending to be cool and hip and stay downtown.

Gifts from California

The chocolate swirl cookie butter. I thought that was a myth till I searched ebay and you can see on instagram #traderjoes all the resellers of the stuff.

Yes so true, when i was growing up my grandma raised a pig all year and it was sacrificed before winter/late fall. They would eat anything. Between chickens and a pig, you can get rid of all the kitchen scraps.

Da-Le ranch will sell you a whole pig if you are interested..we got 1/8 of a grass-fed cow from them. "Cow-pooled" with 7 other families.

oh it is OK..as we age gracefully it is our duty to become booze and food snobs. I can only handle 2 cocktails so I always go for my favorite tequila, booze etc...might as well make them really tasty and smooth.

Yes, you walk over. People around us had food. We actually had dinner and some drinks at Jayne's Gastropub across the street then went to PP. Yes, when we went to Addison on a Friday night it was just hubby and I at the bar and the bartender was very helpful and chatty. I told him to make me his favorite cocktails and I was open to try something new. He explained to me the different ingredients etc..quite an artist. I think you could get some snacks and sit outside as well, we saw people there. We had cocktail hour before dinner..

yes agree with the Addison cocktails..very very good. I had a beautiful Pisco sour there and a great Manhattan.
Love Noble but no food and the res system is a PITA. My favorite is the Goldrush..bourbon, lemon and honey
Polite Provision was good, snacks next door
Prohibition was disappointing, only went once.
We had a very nice evening of cocktails and apps at Prepkitchen in Little Italy

Thank you..if I show my husband the foie pic he may die of anticipation till we get there. One night we are leaving the kids behind so that is why I want one special place. The rest can be more casual, although my kids are very adventurous CH eaters.. pho, ramen, thai etc..
