Thanks to you CHs for your Fresno/Clovis recs. My trip was postponed until this week and my biggest regret is that my business trip is too short for me to be able to sample all the places that you all recommended.
Polarbear was right when he said that Fresno would surprise me. Actually I was both pleasantly surprised and overwhlemed. I have run out of days to eat and have to leave tomorrow at noon!
I went to Plaza Ventana my first night here. It was delicious! I had the camarones and they were cooked perfectly and there were generous amounts of beans and rice, guacamole, sour cream and chips along with 3 kinds of salsa. Not greasy at all and very flavorful. Service was friendly and efficient!
I stopped in at Citron to look at their menu this afternoon. It is a beautiful restaurant and the food sounded great but I shied away from there because of a previous post about the rude service.
Tonight I tried to get a reservation at La Paella but they weren't open when I called. I ended up at Vitucci's instead for a superb veal and pasta dinner.
I hope to return to Fresno/ Clovis and am debating about whether to stay here next trip or go to Visalia where my next meeting is scheduled. Thanks to you all for your recs. I am looking forward to coming back this way again!
