Gulfstream, Toscanova, Rocksugar, which one?

Anybody recommend one of these over the others?

  1. I take it you are going to be at the Century City mall.

    Gulfstream or Houstons. No reports yet on Toscanova.

    1. I like the salads at Gulfstream. The food at Rock Sugar is atrocious. Haven't tried Toscanova.

        1. I had drinks and appetizers at Toscanova last week and it seemed just fine. It was pretty much run-of-the-mill Italian probably on par, in my opinion, with Trilussa or Il Fornaio. Friends have gone for lunch and said it was decent.

          Gulfstream is expensive, but the fish is generally well-prepared. I've only had good meals there. It has nothing that blows me away, but is consistent.

          1. If it's anything like the Gulfstream in Newport, they do an excellent job. Pray for the best crab cakes ever (on special Saturdays in Newport), the Shrimp Orleans or something like that they serve on Tuesday is to die for, any halibut or swordfish or Caesar salad... it's all basic, but excellent. And much more fun to sit at the bar than in the restaurant.
