I've been to Chinios in Santa Monica a few times and the most memorable part was the Chinese Chicken Salad, but really, my Chinese aunt can whip one in seconds and for free.
Afterwards, I decided I wanted to try Spago. You always hear about Spago, like it's the legend of LA. My boyfriend and I went there and I could not be more disappointed. The appetizer was beautifully plated, but totally lacked any flavor (It was some asapargus salad), and then our entrees were the complete opposite. It looked like someone threw a slab of meat on our plate and garnished it with bad stir fry veggies. And it was sooooo heavy in fat and rich in flavor that I could have felt healthier walking out of Jack in the Box.
I still haven't written off Wolfgang restaurants...I play it like baseball! So I've been curious to try Cut...any feedback? Is there a Wolfgang restaurant (aside from Chinios and Spago) that you would reccomend over Cut?
