best of 2000

  • d

with the end of the year approaching, it is time to give my nominations for the best of 2000:

best breakfast: uncle bill's pancake house in manhattan beach - the cheddar & bacon waffles are the best breakfast dish i've ever had (and i've had it probably 30 times)

best entree: prawns with garlic noodles at crustacean in beverly hills. expensive at $48 but worth it.

best dessert: napolean at citrus in hollywood. layers of creme brulee and wafers - just incredible!

best appetizer: crab cakes at ivy at the shore in santa monica.

best overall food (appetizer, entree & dessert): shiro's in pasadena. great spring rolls, catfish, and tiramisu.

best atmosphere: crusatcean in beverly hills: upscale trendy place with a koi stream running underneath the floor covered by glass.

ok, let's hear your votes! the only ground rule: it must be of restaurants you've been to in 2000.
