Was Quantum closed for a while? I remember it opened just before I moved from SB and I didn't get to try it and then when I was back there last year I thought when I drove by the signage was down.

Going home in a few days (Monterey Bay) and already have dinner with the grandparents at Carmel Chophouse, parents at Bouchee Bisto and best friend at L'Auberge. No Bernardus this trip except for maybe a day at the spa there.

Quantum used to be private dining only, and then they opened up for general lunch and dinner. Perhaps there was a transition period when they were closed?

I still remember the first time I noticed the restaurant: there were lots of expensive Porsches parked outside including a Carrera GT.

Yes, although I suspect you're not talking about the one at Crescent Heights and Wilshire. Tasty stuff.

i suggest "outdoor grill" between washington blvd and washington place near centinela. ask for the tri-tip sandwich.

I have a good friend from Tennesse who insists that you can't make "real barbecue" with beef.

I love their Wahoo's bowl with the grilled fish. Had it for lunch on Monday.

I miss Wahoo's. I like the bowl with terriyaki beef and the enchiladas are good too.

For a cheap lunch, I recommend the Burger Joint in the Parker Meridien. Unbelievable burger/fries/soda for like $11.10.

Belltown, Seattle - Highly recommend "Marco's Supperclub" on 1st and Wall. The outdoor seating is serene and cozy at the same time, the food is spectucular, and the ginger lemonade is worth a stop by for on it's own. Very reasonably priced as well.

I recommend, Jackies.

Frankie's 457 in Carrol Gardens Brooklyn.
Sweet Chessus Christ the brunch was amazing (however, they are ending it on August 4th) and the french toast is beyond words (which will remain on the menu after the 4th). I'm going to try to make it out to dinner soon.

Shake Shack is actually pretty good, but yeah, lines are insane.

Frankie's Sputino? Brunch ending? Good! WTF is up w/ brunch in an Italian restaurant anyway? I hate to say it, but since having kids I'm now all in favor of banning 'brunch' as a concept and meal. By 12:30 we have been up for almost 7 hours, had breakfast, run errands, played in park, etc., and are ready for a mid-day meal. The boys said they wanted pasta. So we went to Frankie's w/ visions of a nice leisurely Italian lunch, maybe a little wine, and an espresso to fortify ourselves for the long haul until dinner. The place is packed w/ grungy, unwashed sleepyheads nursing hangovers and rubbing the sleep from their eyes. Sorry, no pasta (it's brunchtime!), no this, no that, but lots of Mimosas, pancakes, frenchtoast (sorry SoCal), and granola! It happens every freakin' weekend when we try to go out for lunch, but I thought a restaurant that seems to pride itself on it's 'Italian' authenticity would have to sense to steer clear of this stupid institution...

Sorry for the rant.
