For the second edition of his Friday LA Blogs questions, Jonah's asking about food. I like food.

Where is the last place you ate out?

  • Last night Kathy and I went to the CPK in 7th+Fig. I had the Carne Asada pizza. She had a salad with chicken on it. We sat down at 9:10 and made it back to my apartment in time to catch Swimming Pool at 10 on Starz.

How often do you eat out?

  • If you include fast food, usually once a day. Going somewhere sit down, probably twice a week. Today Kathy's going to come downtown for lunch and we're going to go back to the Yorkshire Grill, where I ate lunch on Wednesday.

Where is the place you eat most?

  • The cafeteria at JPL probably doesn't count, does it? I don't know a place I go "most". I'm going to cheat and say downtown. There's just so much here all in walking distance. I can't claim to have put even a dent in the list of places to try.

Where do you tell your friends that they "have to try"?

What dish do they have to order when they get there?

  • Eh, whatever they want. I, on the other hand, always get the same thing: Fettucine a Limone with grilled chicken.

Where do you eat when money is not a concern?

  • You go eat steak, and you go where it's the best in LA and open 24 hours, obviously. (Pacific Dining Car, for those who haven't been there). On our first trip I ordered the baseball steak, because I am above all things curious. It really was roughly the proporitions of a baseball. When I ordered, the waiter said "Ah, getting a piece of the the rock."

Where do you eat when money is tight?

  • Used to be C&O's... I don't have as much of a fallback now as I did, though. If money's real tight (which, hey, it often is) I'll probably walk over to Grand Central Market and get a huge meal-sized taco for $2.

What restaraunt have you wanted to try but haven't been to yet?

  • Kathy and I were just talking about this yesterday... There are so many. Ciudad, because we've got a good coupon. Cafe Pinot because of the location. Well, anything Patina Group that I haven't tried, for that matter. I could go on, but you asked for one.
