  1. If it weren't all about the Benjamins, Zagat would do a separate LA Asian Guide.
  2. A quick glance thru the 2005 Z guide looks like 9 sgv Chinese listed and 5 Korean in K-town. But heck, they only list the Guelaguetza in Palms and not the 2 Koreatown/downtown branches.
  3. A couple of points. First, Zagat is pretty generic in its ratings and totally misses out on Monterey Park when it comes to Chinese. Second, those Health Dept. ratings are to be viewed with extreme skepticism. Lots of the points taken off don't directly relate to the healthiness of the food, tho I would agree that at 63 you might have some problems. Third, the County of LA like the City is strapped for cash. I went into a pretty good take out/deli/wine store recently and got some excellent food. As I was leaving, I noticed that the place had a B rating (downgraded from the usual A). I as
  4. An upscale wildcard pick is Noe at the Omni hotel. The chef, Robert (?) Gadsby, can be very creative.
  5. In addition to JFL's picks which are right, I'd say try AOC for it's delicious small plates and wines by the glass, 8022 W. Third St.; Guelaguetza on Olympic for Oaxacan; Philippe's, 1001 N. Alameda for a great french dip sandwich.
  6. The (accurate) comments about Glendale dining notwithstanding, you can get very good food and service at Cinnabar, 933 S. Brand Bl. It's Cal-Asian.
  7. In LA, Patina (delicious), Quizno's (ok), The French Garden (not very French).
  8. Does Macy's recommend Gimbel's? You might try Chowhound's LA board.
  9. You might check Bangkok Market on Melrose.
  10. Speaking of Fred 62, they make something called a Thai Cobb Salad--sorta Thai, sorta Cobb, but no baseball.
  11. Lambretta, if your boss is looking for good, high end places, I'd suggest Spago (Beverly Hills), Josie (Santa Monica) and A O C (West Hollywood). As for Thai, I think the best Thai in Thai Town is found at a very simple, BYOB place called Ruen Pair (for example, you can get fried morning glories there) on Hollywood Blvd. For a more upscale atmosphere, and alcohol, another choice would be Jitlada on Sunset.
  12. It may not strictly count as pie, but I had some tarte tatin from Nicole's in South Pas this weekend and it was delicious.
  13. If you do drive down Highway 1 be sure to have a good pair of shades. The sun. The sun. Comes and goes as you navigate the twists and turns.
  14. What's the name of the restaurant in Paris and who are the proprietors?
  15. Well I'll give you candy, Give you diamonds, Give you pearls, I´ll give you anything you want! hundred dollar bills Monkeymay, now you have to marry him, marry him, marry him. Actually, we are each happily married.... to other people.
