Hubster & I are watching our calorie intake in preparation for a trip to HI in 3 weeks. So after a salad at Max's Palo Alto we decided to have a mai tai in place of dessert and made a stop at Trader Vics on ECR. Lo and behold we spotted a posting touting the coming of THE SEA (A high-end seafood venue), by Alexander's Steakhouse. Anyone have details to share? Am anticipating it to be phenomenal. Last day for TV is tomorrow.

      Nuts, sort of. I wish they kept the tiki and just added better food. But I admit to not stopping off there often, and when I'm in a tropical party mood going to Nola instead, so maybe it's time for a change.

        True that but the drinks were stiff, and reasonable. BTW isn't NOLA (in PA) cajun-creole? Maybe you were thinking of Hurricanes LOL!

        According to their website, the last day was yesterday -- in case anyone else was thinking of going by there today.

          I, for one, am happy to see a new venue, though sounds like it will be another pretentious fancy affair. But I will reserve judgement.

          Trader Vics had such a nice facade and ambiance that it perpetually disappointed when it came to the food (though my young sons were very impressed with it)
