Has anyone noticed the restaurants that the LA reviewers of ZAGAT go to??? I was checking out the 2002 edition, and over 1,000 people went to the OLIVE GARDEN in the past year. Call me a food snob, but you couldn't pay me to eat there. And look at the other top visits - Jerry's Deli, Louise's. If I found out someone regularly went to any of these restaurants, I would ignore any food advice they might give.
And Cafe Bizou getting such a high ranking. This restaurant, which used to be terrific when it was Cafe Katsu on Sawtelle, has gotten progressively worse over the years. The last time I went the food was virtually inedible (however, the service is always prompt and friendly). Yes, they have a $2 corkage, but they have crappy stemware.
Who are these people???
