What were your top restaurant experiences of 2012? Mine best meal experiences this year were (in no particular order):
Jair Tellez meal at "El Take It Easy"
Collaboration Kitchen (I know not really a resto)
Pacifica Del Mar
Flavor Del Mar
Sushi Ota (at the sushi bar)
Burlap was one of my most disappointing meals of 2012 and Cowboy Star I thought was good but overpriced.
So many wonderful years on Christmas Eve at the Whaling Bar and Manny at the helm.
It was tradition for us locals to at least have one drink and see everyone at the bar and then hold court in one of the booths, eating and drinking till late and then singing Xmas songs all the way home in the village.
Great memories..will you have a toast for me since I can't be there.
The crumbles that I make taste just like ground beef but better and I do a slightly crunchy taco with extra sharp cheese, avocado, sour cream, jalapenos and a hot hot salsa..no pico de gallo crap.
Here is the menu for Haggo's..pricey and no 'Crumbles'..what's up with that?
My top experiences were anywhere that didn't imprison live trees or have 8 ft portraits of Barbara Streisand. Anywhere the young male waitstaff did not call me or my friends, "hon." Anywhere a Seasoned Chef DID the cooking, called the shots, and managed the kitchen like a pro. Anyplace that didn't have a crab cake or beet salad on the menu.
