Thank You L.A. Hounds

Helen | Oct 28, 199908:26 PM     3

Just returned from a week of happy mealtimes in L.A. I left NYC clutching the L.A. Zagat's & several dog-eared pages of comments I downloaded from this board (hope I wasn't infringing anyone's copyright, but I couldn't get my PC & monitor on the plane...)
Anyway, thanks for tips on Ciudad (1st of many memorable meals in town,) Ruen Pair, R-23, Shibucho (after those two may never have the heart to eat sushi in NYC again,) Suehiro, let's see, where else did we go, James' Beach & Capri in Venice (especially liked the latter), and a couple of highly satisfying tacos when I was in Grand Central Market, from a stand with a throng that was three-deep, maybe called Tomas?
Wouldn't have heard of/sought out/found most of the above without your postings. And was it just our luck, or are all the waitstaff out there much lower on the attitude scale than the general run in NY? And how is it that I lost weight out there, after all of the above?
