2007 Pellegrino Dine Out -- Is it Just Me?

or are other hounds underwhelmed by this year's choices and menus as well, especially in OC but LA too?

  1. I was underwhelmed as well but the places that I might have tried were lunch only, which I couldn't do, so I didn't go out of my way to participate this year. It seemed like all of the Italian places had the same menu.

    1. re: Bon Vivant

      I cound not agree more. I did book Chinois on Main for lunch this Thursday and the only other option that looked good was the dinner at Ocean Seafood.

    2. exactly. yawn. plus, I've noticed in the past that most restaurants are definitely less than enthusiastic about the program. some places you have to ask several times for the Dine Out menu (because servers don't know what you're talking about). I've heard that in other cities the vibe is totally different.

      1. chicken breast and salmon... no thank you.

          1. I agree. But this isn't just a 2007 thing. Last year's choices and menus were very uninteresting.
