    Worth it for what? There's only interest because of the show, although Sur can be good. There are far better restaurants in both areas, but it sounds like you're visiting and hollywood-minded.

        I absolutely wasn't being insulting - I read your question as one we see from tourists with an interest in Hollywood and what's hot in magazines.

          If you are considering other places beyond the two which you list, but haven't been to as of yet (Sur and VB) it is incredibly helpful if you list where you have been in the area under discussion here, and which ones were hits and which were misses. That way we can avoid spinning our wheels by recommending places which you have already been (knowing you are looking to try someplace new) and more accurately hone in on those places which might have similarities to those you've been to already, and said you liked.

        Never tried either but if the link to the Real Housewives of BH compels you to go then do report back. There are a number of other restaurants in the area, however, that are much more highly regarded by the members of this board. Also in BH and serving wonderful food: Scarpetta, Spago, AOC, Momed, etc. I guess it depends on what you are looking for.

          Ok...we have been to a few in BH. We were looking for something new and that was worth trying. So those two are obvioulsy what is trending now thanks to the Housewives show.

            Scarpetta - new and definitely worth trying.
