    I hated Bruxie when I went, don't understand why everyone is going nuts over it.

    I went again yesterday and got the Wild mushroom/goat cheese/arugala/basalmic reduction (which is what I got last time, because they didn't have the pulled-pork, which was recommended to me). I thought it was still pretty good...something about the waffle maybe? On the other hand my friends all got the fried chicken/maple syrup one which they were not too pleased with. Meh.

    I had three different ones, bruxie burger, a breakfast one and something else. We left pretty unsatisfied but who knows some of the other ones might be better.

    Been to sun of a gun, really liked their foods. Havens burger is a gutbomb destroyer, but its pretty good. A bit too heavy but worth a try.
    Decided to focus of foods portland isnt doing the best at- tacos, tacos, tacos, tacos, tacos, sushi and good burgers.

    If that's the case, I'm convinced between Ricky's and Cacao you've got your taco bases covered. Maybe add Chichen Itza, too.

    So my brother has been in Japan for 3 years and is back to visit and I want to take him out for dinner. He has requested a good burger - based on what I've read so far (and because I haven't been to either) I've narrowed it to Rustic Canyon & Comme Ca. Any recs?

    Never had Rustic Canyons, but Comme Ca's is pretty damn good, good steak frites and drinks too.

    okay so i've done a quick look through the thread since I'm going to be in Santa Monica this weekend (and i'll be with friends so i doubt i'll be able to drive around LA much), and it looks like Fred Segal Santa Monica is the only place mentioned I should check out in SM. Any other recs for SM?

    Brentwood Country mart. Monocle, Unionmade, Farmshop, the Diesel bookstore, etc.

    If your in Santa Monica on saturday go to the farmers market on the promenade. just go early vs. later though...its much less touristy earlier on. get a Godmother Sandwhich at Bay Cities Italian Deli.

    I live in Brentwood, and I'm new to the area. Where can I go to get myself a haircut?

    I used to live in the South Bay and I would drive down to Long Beach to get my haircut at Syndicate, which was awesome and cheap ($21). Now I live too far away for that to make sense and I need a new go-to. Any recommendations for good, cheap, no-frills barbershops around Brentwood/Santa Monica/West LA?

    Thanks!
