I guess fine dining in L.A. is a relic of the past. No wonder there are so
few posts anymore here in the la.eats newsgroup.
LA is still good for food.
From what I see, not being a major restaurant person, I would agree.
That fact that ba.food has 100-400 times the traffic that la.eats has
is likely due to some cultural factors, not the intrinsic issue of BA
vs LA food.
I hope Julian and Meg can say more about LA food. (Sad that I can't
think of an actual LA resident who posts a lot, but only these semi-LA,
but also BA, or Santa Barbara, residents. Are there no LA residents
really active and posting?)
I expect to be visiting the greater LA area (not confined to Arne-Land)
in the next few months. I would love to say that I'll be checking out
the various Michelin-whatevered or Zagat-whatevered places and
reporting back here, but we all know this would be bullshit. I'll
probably visit some ribs places, maybe an Island burger place (there's
one now about 30 miles south of me in Monterey/Del Monte Center), and
maybe some other place my brother suggests.
That fried chicken place on Sepulveda--I want to call it Zagat Chicken,
but I know that's not the name!--is high on my list of places to try.
