  1. yes--what a great restaurant. We have lived in PHX for a month and just finally got there yesterday for lunch. We had the spring rolls, the seafood pho and a pork noodle dish. All were amazing! We met some wine people at Mondavi and they really like it because it's BYOB? is that true? if so how awesome!
  2. I live in San Diego and one of my new favorite places is Chef Lau's. http://entertainment.signonsandiego.com/profile/271234 It's great Asain Tapas at a really reasonable price. Dumpling wrapers and noodles are made fresh--they claim they are one of the few in the US who make these from scratch. Atmosphere is great, and not your typical paper placemats with Chinese birth signs on it. Another great place is Region. www.regionrestaurant.com Region is seasonal regional cuisine and strictly goes by this philosophy. It is really reasonably priced and on Tuesdays there is a prix fix - three cours
  3. Five Feet Restaurant 328 Glenneyre St. Laguna Beach, CA 92651 949-497-4955 The best duck I've ever had. And the wine brats call it a savvy spot. (I actually went there because of the wine list) And the Travel Channel said this about it: Best Original Eurasian 5'0" (Five Feet) Where: 328 Glenneyre, Laguna Beach, CA 92651 Phone: 949-497-4955 Hours: Sun - Thu 5 p.m.-10 p.m.; Fri - Sat 5 p.m.-11 p.m. Prices: $18 — $30 entrees When 5'0" (Five Feet) made its culinary debut, the restaurant offered a rarely seen blend of Asian techniques and ingredients and California cuisine, helped create the title
  4. Yes to Region! Although the acoustics are terrible on busy nights it really is the best dining in San Diego. Tuesday is the night to go as that is when the ingredients are at their freshest. Why I love Region: The first time we went was a Saturday, and with a group of people I was just meeting for the first time. Although the food was AMAZING the experience was less than perfect due to the fact that I could hardly hear what the person next to me was saying. But a few weeks later, the chef came to the school I work at--to talk to a class. The students were all excited about this restaurant,
  5. Sushi on the Rocks in La Jolla is very good and great atmosphere and in the Village. Carolyn, thanks for the welcome. I just moved to La Jolla, and am a librarian at a culinary school in Mission Valley. I came across eGullet in my research---
  6. Candela's in the Gaslamp has hands down the best service in town. Although a little spendy for Mexican, it is amazing, romantic and unique. My favorite place for a good first drink out of work is at The Bitter End. They have a black martini, which is espresso and booze. Picks you up and puts you down. Lou and Mickey's also has some classic cocktails that cannot be beat---several from which more than one person can drink. Taka Sushi really is the best Sushi in town and it happens to be in the Gaslamp. Here is their website: http://www.takasushi.com/ Wahoo's although a chain, still my fa
