Okay, I'm mostly a lurker here but I've got to ask this question:
Anybody ever notice a chlorine taste to pastas in certain restaurants? I've tasted it in Buca, Louise's, and San Gennaro and have been afraid to go back ever since.
I realise it's probably just LA County re-chlorinating the water but I found it to be disgusting in restaurant food.
Is this common or did I just get unlucky and hit the trifecta?
(BTW, I've NEVER tasted chlorine in any food from Giovanni's or Guido's)
