Places you avoided for a long time but now love

Have there ever been places you avoided for a long time for whatever reason, but finally decided to take the plunge, and now you love?

For me it's Shaab in Pasadena. I thought it couldn't possibly measure up to Shabu Shabu house in Little Tokyo, and I wasn't that keen on Old Town Pasadena. But I finally decided to try it and love it. The food is at least equal, there's no wait(they take reservations), parking is much better, and best of all I don't have to hear that dreaded country music while I eat. I've never gone back to SSH.

There's another place like this but it's slipped my mind. You?
