Which place should I choose?


Recommended Posts

I hate to sound CH-ish, but:

 

I will be at the WCR conference in Pasadena in early November. There is a dine-around on a Saturday night, in which a smallish group goes to a local restaurant. The possibilities are in three price groups, and I have to choose one restaurant. Please advise. :blush:

 

$90

Ciudad

Grace

Hatfield's

Jar

Luques

Tar Pit

 

$70

AOC

Cecconi

Church and State Bistro

Mozza

Red White & Bluezz Wine Bar

Street

 

$55

POP Champagne & Dessert Bar

 

Thanks for your help.

It's okay. :) I picked Red White & Bluezz Wine Bar, not because I expect a gourmet tap-dance, but because it looks like fun even if the group turns out not to be interesting, although that is rarely the case. Also because the last time I went to a jazz club with these folks (Jazz Factory in Louisville), I heard a performer (René Marie) I loved so much I've been following her ever since. And as I recall, LA has a decent jazz scene, so local talent should be worth hearing.

Arg. I haven't been on lately and so just saw this. Have never heard of that jazz bar, but that doesn;t mean anything as I have never been to a jazz bar in LA. I really like AOC on that list.

That's okay, too. I know which of the ones I've heard of are supposed to be good. I was just wondering about the others. :)

 

Hey Susanne,

Just so you know...

 

Ciudad is now Border Grill - they changed over about 2 weeks ago

Grace is closed - Neal is trying to open a place downtown at St. Vibiana's

The rest are ok, but I would recommend Hatfield's out of the bunch.

Or come downtown to the Nickel. No booze tho :(

 

Cheers!

Monica
