Looking for a really current update on the L.A. kosher food scene, to prepare our "eating itinerary" :) for an upcoming trip. (I've read the Best Kosher in Los Angeles thread)
We're considering Shilo's, Bistro Baguette Cafe, Tierra Sur in Oxnard, A Cow Jumped Over the Moon, and possible return trips (We were there in 2005) to: Pat's, Delice (for brunch and nosh), Jeff's, Coffee Bean/Tea Leaf, and Milk and Honey.
We've pretty much eliminated La Gondola, and Milky Way (didn't like them last time around), and Prime Grill (based on some lousy reviews on this board).
Can anyone share updated comments on any of these (pro and con), and add other suggestions with reliable hashgochos, anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area (within driving/touring distance - from Pizza Shop and snack places, to upscale. Is there anything in downtown L.A.? Near any touristy attractions? In the Farmer's Market/Grove? ...
Also, any take-out suggestions for Shabbos.
Thanks very much!
