Zucca? Too oily and heavy. I think it is one of those places where the image is more than the substance.
I thought it was very original to include The Gutter- although some of their dishes could use some work (their version of a tofu scramble called "the hippie bowl" is overly heavy, porridge-like and waaaay too spicy!) it is nice to see a low-budget place with so much creativity and no snobbery make the list. The pancakes rock, and they will make anything vegetarian if you ask.
Other thoughts on the issue?
