Nah, I hate valeting the M3. Even though the cars at Pelican Hill make the M3 look like a hoopty, I'm paranoid that something will happen to it, I've heard too many horror stories regarding valets. Plus, I get a kick out of driving our POS home depot car to the super ritzy, over the top places. That's one of the reasons I hate eating in LA, you HAVE to valet at some places.

Felix Continental Cafe at the Square in Orange. Great cuban/spanish eats and a $5 corkage but bring stems as they only have the little ones.

Tabu Grill, Laguna Beach. Website states $30/bottle with 2 bottle max. Went last night, got charged $25/bottle [scratch.gif] Brand new chef, new menu started last night. Spectacular butternut squash soup, beet salad. Vietnamese salad was very good. Foie gras was unlike anything I've ever had for foie gras, almost like a pate brulee, kinda weird. Pork was sublime, ribeye was good, but nothing special. The place has expanded into the space next door and not as dark. Great meal and vibe.

No, Hush was about 1.5 miles north of Tabu. Tabu has always been where it's located, but expanded to the area next door. I can't remember what used to be next to Tabu. I was with some non-wine geeks so brought easy drinking stuff. 06 Copain en haut and 07 Jadot Baudes. Both were delicious. Looked over the wine list, usual overpriced stuff centered around recent CA.

Broadway in Laguna Beach. $25/bottle, 2 bottle limit. Been open a couple months now. In the old space where Five Feet used to be. Terrific food, hip decor, fantastic service. Loved everything about this restaurant. One of my and my wife's new faves. 2 big thumbs up...except for the corkage, but $25 is standard for Laguna Beach. Brought a 02 Lafarge Ducs, loved this bottle, will post a TN in the wine talk forum.

Three Seventy Common in Laguna Beach, where the old Sorrento Grill used to be. Woo-Hoo, great corkage policy. $15/bottle, no bottle limit. 1st bottle is waived if it's not on the wine list. I looked at the wine list, everyone on this board WILL get the 1st bottle waived. Good food, hip atmosphere, Loud as hell. I think I was getting hoarse by the end of the night. Brought 2 bottles, but only opened one cuz the ladies weren't drinking much. That one bottle was free cuz it wasn't on the list. 05 Dujac F&P AC CM. Surprisingly, drinking great right from the start. I also brought a 06 RM Old Vines cuz I wanted to compare the two, but it never got opened. Saved myself $15 and took the RM back home.

I'm going to be in Long Beach later this month. Are there any BYO's in town or close to town? I'm going out to dinner with a vendor that's looking for casual food. She's recently become interested in wine, and I'm going to bring a bottle.

Agree with Michaels. Lasher's is also quite good, $15 corkage IIRC. Cool little place in a converted house.

Chapter One in Santa Ana is $15 but offers free corkage (and half-off bottles) on Wednesdays. The menu offers a wildly creative spin on some American classics, but it's hit or miss IMO, and a several dishes are just too clever by half and probably could use some editing. But their $5 all-you-can-drink mimosa brunch on Sundays is good sloppy fun and worth checking out at least once.

Agreed. Chapter One is a fun place and free corkage Weds. kicks ass. Really like the Mac & Cheese. We should do a dinner there on a Weds.

Lashers report

Pretty place from the outside, but not as pretty inside. Stil cute though. I'm a sucker for beets, so when the waitress said they had a special salad of golden beets with strawberries, I was hooked. After about 3 bites of salad, I said to my companion, where are the beets? She looked and was puzzled. Where's the beets? I was expecting to see beet slices or chunks, but what I had was 2 small 'pineapple chunk' type of pieces. [scratch.gif] I called over the waitress who headed to the kitchen to make our salad right. She came back with the only explanation I would have accepted. She told me that the beets fell to the bottom of whatever container they were in, and that's what got me 2 bite size pieces. Still short of what I expected. It was careless.

My friend ordered a chicken dish with a white sauce. She told me the sauce made the chicken dish delicious. I ordered the short ribs which was outstanding. It went well with the 08 Carlisle Syrah Papas Block. Outstanding wine that's drinking well now, but has a long life ahead. The $17 corkage wasn't waived, even thought we offered a glass to the waitress (who shared with the chef).

Before the bill arrived, the chef sent out an some apple concoction with ice cream, as a thank you for the pour. [cheers.gif]

I'd still return to Lasher's, but next time I'll pass on the beet special. $115 all in for 2.

Moros Cuban

Pretty small place. Great food. Probably should bring your own stems. They have no alcohol so bring what you'll need. Might be fun to take this place over one night for an offline.

$0 [cheers.gif] [thumbs-up.gif]

BTW - Their food is getting more and more inconsistant.

Piccolino in Mission Viejo is $15 but they waive corkage on Sundays and Mondays. The food is home-style Italian American done well. A lot of their pastas are made in house -- I had the duck confit ravioli and LB had the pappardelle with lamb ragu -- cooked to a perfect al dente. Not exactly a fancy place but huge step up from your typical OC strip mall mom-and-pop places.

Anyone know if The Winery's wine list is available anywhere on line? It doesn't seem to be on their site and at $25 (among the highest in OC) I don't know that I care that much about transgressing, but it'd be nice to check first.

Too bad, I liked their Hawaiian rib eye. Guess Houston's is out of our restaurant loop. Easily replaced by the Playground, but I'm sure they'll come to their senses eventually...especially after we open 10 bottles and stay 3 hours. But hey, we tip great!

You still around, buddy? I thought you were in Tenn. Anyway, started a thread about their curious wine list with ratings from different critics. I wrote up my experience on that thread. Long story, short...not great food, pretty good and well priced wine list. I probably won't go back.

Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

The Corner in Huntington Beach in no corkage, but bring your own stems. Food is good and inexpensive as well. My new favorite place!

That would be a solid place for a small wine dinner.

The email made no mention of a limit, but I wouldn't want to abuse the policy by bringing more than a bottle per person.
