Restaurant Resolutions in 2009
Last year, I had the resolutions of trying a new restaurant each week, or 52 new restaurants for the year, and I was able to accomplish it! Still, I didn't get to some of the restaurants I had resolved to try on my list last year. This year, I'm resolving that at least half the new restaurants I try will be ethnic food and I especially want to explore the offerings in Torrance and Gardena and the SGV in more depth. On my list:
Moles La Tia
Ricky's Fish Tacos
Lazy Ox Canteen
there are a ton more, but I need to put some more thought into it. I'd love to hear what others have planned.
I love this post. I am proud of myself as I really ventured out in 2009 and averaged about 2 new places a week (new to me that is). This year I hope to hit AT LEAST the following:
The Tasting Kitchen
There are ton of more for me as well and this doesn't include all the new restaurants due to open - Hatfields, Osaka, The District, Waterloo & City, First & Hope and all the great ones I discovered that I want to return to or old favorites. Fun and daunting at the same time!
Bouchon. Sounds good, although a "destination restaurant.
No "destination" restaurants. They don't seem to last very long. The neighborhood ones are the keepers.
Non-molecular restaurants (foam free-please).
No offal, please
Guess I'll not be visiting Bazaar or Animal. Honestly, every time I read a review of Animal ..... never mind. To each his own.
I'm hoping to win the Mega Millions Lottery (or start a new project at a rediculous high pay scale) so I can afford all those places that I've only read about here and elsewhere! Especially that Japanese place in BH that some of you bloggers describe with both words and food porn pics, it's torture!!!
