I'm always satisfied with Mitsuwa.

Had a fantastic dinner at Providence the night before and Rivera on Friday was sublime. In my opinion those are the two fine dining spots worth noting in LA.

I actually just got back from Tsujita. Wasn't crowded today. Have you been to Asanebo?

haven't been to hannosuke, but love mitsuwa. and had dinner at rivera last night. it really is remarkably good.
that's the mushroom carpaccio, really beautiful plate in that it's extremely thought out and definitely arranged, but completely natural looking.

Hey, nice to see a post from you.

That's one fine plate of spaghettos.

I'm in a spaghetto (laugh.gif) mood at the moment.

The quince dish from Jerusalem is interesting flavour-wise. My mother and a few friends that tried it liked it, but I wasn't completely sold. The texture is a little disappointing. While the quince still offers an ever so slightly crunch, the meat is completely soft (mushy), which is a bit off-putting. Probably beause it was minced very finely too. Maybe I just misinterpreted "very soft flesh", since thirty minutes of slight cooking wasn't enough at all. But to me, very soft means, well, very soft.

I adore Rivera. I have been to no other restaurant in LA as much as there. There is no other place like it, and for me it is really a top place to eat. I just worry about that location and the debt. I have a bad feeling it won't last.

You should try Hannosuke. Get the ten don, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the karate. Best in LA by far.

I haven't, is that the miso specialized place?

I love ramen but really for me it's a late night food and Tsujita is so inconvenient. I love the broth, and I like the tsukumen even more, but that is not lunch food, I'm sorry.

Their tsukumen/ramen menu is going to be served at dinner for the next 4 nights.

Rivera was excellent. Nice cocktails, too.

i know. i've been saying that since it opened (john is a very old friend ... came to my first thanksgiving dinner in la in 1986). But last night (wednesday night), the place was packed. i think that nokia/staples connection works. and bill chait, his business partner, is some kind of restaurant genius.

Glad to hear it. I think Rivera is a top 15 place, as much as I hate lists. For me in the USA, it is. It has the kind of food you cannot find anywhere else. Even the "boring" staples like the yucutan butter and that corn flan... holy shit man. Every fish dish I've gotten has always been perfectly cooked, which doesn't seem to happen. Even my turbot at Providence the other let me down a bit. Rivera is solid.

I'll be in LA at the end of April. Anybody care to suggest a place? Bouchon and now Rivera seem towards the top of my list, and I don't care about fancy vs. rustic or anything. Just great food.

definitely rivera, possibly providence, but there's probably not much point in bouchon (sorry T!). if you've eaten at one, you've eaten at pretty much all of them. i'd go for something that is more la-centric. great korean, japanese, chinese ... that's really what we have that's best.
