Made out LOS Reservation for Monday Night.

We're keeping our fingers crossed for stellar veggie food. I'm personally excited for all the stellar German wines.

Anyone (Dave Feldman?!?) have plans to be there Monday around 6pm?

    I'm nearly 3000 miles away! Unfortunately. I'd definitely recommend asking forBank (his name is pronounced BANG) or Bill (the owner).They are both "wine guys" and if they have time, love nothing more than schmoozing about wine and food. Have fun!

      Thanks for the tips!

      Sorry that my post was a bit rough typingwise- posting after a couple cocktails is never a good idea! :)

        For some reason, I didn't notice the "Veggie" part of your post. Please keep in mind that MANY of the dishes can be altered for vegetarian purposes. For example, the crispy rice with sour sausage can be prepared with tofu instead of sausage and it's terrific. There is also always a spicy tofu salad available, even if it isn't on the menu. So if you see a sauce that looks particularly promising, let them know.

          Good point, Dave. I went with a vegetarian friend and was craving khai soi (or however you spell it...). They made a version with tofu that was perfect!

            This is all such good news! A large percentage of our group are veg.

              Although there is not a separate "vegetarian" part of their menu, all of the various curries and sauces can be done with tofu (the musaman curry works particularly well with tofu), and there are some unique offerings - their spicy mushroom dip packs a flavor wallop, and for a real change of pace they do some interesting things with jack fruit (probably best compared to an artichoke), something that is rarely found on menus in this country.

      OP reporting back here. We had to cancel. It's a long story, and I'm bummed. We're in Vegas every now and again, so I'll keep all this info handy. Thanks everyone!

        In all my years here, I think this is the first time I remember a cancelee coming back saying so - that was thoughtful of you.

          Just common courtesy. :)
