  1. I'm not, but I'm impressed regardless:

    "Esparza puts it this way: "We're of a similar age, so we remember the old Tijuana when all the college students and cholos used to go and get drunk on the Avenida Revolucion. It was [Manzke's] idea to bring that '80s Tijuana club music. We have 2 Live Crew on our sound system. You're not going that see that with Daniel Boulud."

    Esparza has helped Manzke locate everything from ingredients to talent, including wild Sonoran chiltepin chiles used in the aguachile en molcajete and one of the best tortilla-makers in L.A., a woman in Boyle Heights."

      y'know, esparza has always been reliable when it comes to where to get tasty food, but beyond that, almost everything he writes and says makes my butt clench.

      1. re: linus

        No arguments here. But his food knowledge is legit.

        The whole Bayless v SGLA thing was so, so petty/ridiculous.

    2. Petty Cash web site:

      I laughed when I read this blurb: "Walk-In's Welcome - No Reservations" Say what? If you don't take reservations you had damn well better welcome walk-in's or you won't have any business at all.
