restaurant.com - Los Angeles
I took advantage of a restaurant.com deal once last year and now I seem to get daily emails about it. One of the places I chose - Stefan Richter's LA Farm, stopped honoring the certs before I used mine, so I have to trade it in.
Most of what I see for their LA participating restaurants look less than inspiring, and not where I would choose to go on my own.
Question: ARE THERE ANY GOOD LA RESTAURANTS ON RESTAURANT.COM?
I'm in H'wood and mid-Wilshire, and prefer not to stray too far, but I will go aways since I do have this credit to spend. I purposely didn't limit it by cuisine because I sense there won't be that many recommendations even w/o a limitation. Maybe I'm wrong?
Something seems to have happened with Restaurant.com and a lot of restaurants dropped out. I have a lot of credits because restaurants stopped accepting certificates I had purchased.
Of restaurants in your general vicinity, by far the best is Marino on Melrose for classic Italian. Locanda Veneta by the Beverly Center also is listed and is good.
Other places worth trying are the Ethiopian restaurants on Fairfax. Rosalind's, Rahel's, Marathon, and Buna are probably not the best restaurants in the area, but might be worth trying.
Bruddah's in Gardena still accepts the coupons. Also CBS in Chinatown, decent if not great Chinese. A little far from you, but Restaurant.com has slim pickings these days. Pann's also quit them and Back Home Lahaina Manhattan Beach went out of business. I don't think BHL Carson takes the coupon.
