Wow, I just found this site. Read the tale of Renu Nakorn Thai restaurant, I was salivating and then almost cried that it's not there anymore with the fabulous woman.
I live in land locked Illinois and will be in the area April 14th - April 18th. I have to fit in food finds in the evenings, work durring the day at the convention center in LA (Gourmet Products Show). I will not have a car and am staying at a hotel in Santa Monica (shuttle bus between). What are some good picks? Any current ideas. Want to try anything, some cheap, some fancy...need an education on sushi. Am I stuck without a car? I would enjoy trying some spots and responding with a review. Many thanks to any help!
