Smiley, they're putting the facade from the Boat onto the old Steak 'n Stein building, which is being moved to the current location of the Boat & being renovated to match the nautical style of the Boat.

Has the Jay's Jayburger on Santa Monica reopened? Jay's Jayburger opened a location in San Diego with the same chili recipe, but I don't think it made it.

I think the Steak and Stein building is staying where it is now but is being "renovated" and a new boat facade added. They plan on tearing down the old Galley completely to make room for parking for the new Kohl's store that replaced the old shopping center. Having been to the old Galley (I never made it to the old Steak and Stein) I don't think the changes will retain any of the character of the old locations. At least we still have the Northwoods Inn and Steak and Stein in Pico Rivera.

I don't think it has reopened yet. The one in SD was in Mission Hills on Washington. I managed to go there once before it closed. I think they picked the wrong neighborhood to open in (Mission Hills is pretty expensive and upscale).

Barney's Beanery- (323)654-2287, 8447 Santa Monica Blvd.

...and if you get tired of sampling 150 imported beers you can head on across the street to the Oakie Dog (also known as Danny's) or a few doors down to the Volcano Burger for a double cheese that rivals Tommy's.

COSTA MESA

WESTMINSTER

Riviera at the Fireside - I have not been yet but it's high on my list - 13950 Springdale Street, Westminster, CA 92683 714-897-0477



Jab!
About La Cave: I have dined her for years (I grew up in Costa Mesa), and the food is great! I always go for the Filet & Lobster, which I highly recommend! The mood of La Cave has always set patrons in the mood for Martini's and you will be quite pleased with the selection of entertainers that perform there if you plan to stay after 10pm.

About The Riviera (now Riviera at the Fireside): This restaurant, originally in South Coast Plaza for decades, is now located in the old Fireside Restaurant, both of which have been considered fine dining experiences (although The Riviera has always been my favorite), thus with its relocation is now called "Riviera at the Fireside".

This restaurant will always be my favorite for 2 reasons:
First, this is my first "fine dining experience" shown to me by my mother when I was 15 years old (just before I got my drivers license, and of course, ready to take a date in a car all on my own). She also brushed me up on my proper dining etiquette, how to properly "approve" your wine selection before its served (cork check, wine sniff & taste...yes, yes, at 15 years old!) Also, this is where she gave me my "pep talk" on being a gentleman to the ladies from picking up my date(NO HONKING AT THE CURB!) to dropping her off (and properly escorting her safely to the door.) This is also where I experienced my first Flambé'ed dish, Diane Flambé (aka Steak Diane). Our waiter "David" was also very helpful and saw what my mother was doing and took the liberty of teaching me the reasons & uses for the multitude of forks, spoons & knives used during a fine dining experience. He is a fantastic waiter! Ok, so this first reason had more info than you really needed to know, here's reason number two...

Second, to this day this is probably the only restaurant where I have tried every single dish on the menu, which hasn't changed much since my first dining experience there with my mother 26 years ago, and there has never been a disappointing moment from the initial cocktail being served to the dessert & coffee at the end of a fine meal.

As you may guess, I highly recommend this restaurant. Also, when you make your reservations, ask for "David's Table", who is still there! In the 26 years I have gone, I have only missed one dining experience there without him.

If you want to impress your date (wife or girlfriend/boyfriend...and yes, you can still have a "date" with your wife), this is what I recommend for both fantastic palate sensations & visual presentation:

  • Gulf Shrimp on Ice
  • Spinach Salad "Flambé" (For Two)
  • Filet Diane "Flambé", or Duckling a' L' Orange ("Flambé" with Cointreau) or Pepper Steak "Flambé" Au Cognac
  • Banana (or Strawberries) "Flambé"
  • Cafe Diablo (with COGNAC, GRAND MARNIER & RUM), and yes it is presented "Flambé"!


No matter what you choose, you must order the Cafe Diablo just to see the presentation, although having a complete "Flambé" night is something you always remember!

Just my 2 Flambé coconuts worth!

Admiral Risty in Palos Verdes

http://www.admiral-risty.com/Main.html

Great steak and seafood in an old timey, nautical setting. Drinks are really good too.

The real non-food bonuses to this place is the fact that it is decked out with nautical history/decor, not over the top, but enough to keep the atmosphere. During the day you command a sweeping view of the pacific ocean, as the restuarant sits a little above the Point Vicente light house.

Sugercaddydaddy - Great personal info on La Cave and Riviera at the Fireside! I love flambe dishes and order them whenever they're offered. Steak Diane has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid and my mother started making it in the 1960s. It is a dish that restaurants often don't make right. And I can't believe they make a flambe salad! And cafe Diablo is one of my favorite after-dinner drinks.

For a long time I've wanted to start a restaurant that harkens back to a 1950s dining experience and serve everything flambed. I would simply call it "The Flame" and have a big neon flickering flame on the sign.

I can't wait to try these places.

HOLLYWOOD/LOS FELIZ

The Dresden - OK it's been 10 years since the movie Swingers came out and the trendy crowds no longer go here, so it's time to visit it again. It's still as cool as ever. The food in the restaurant is pretty good, the lounge is gorgeous, and there's live entertainment every night except Sunday (Marty and Elaine still going strong after 23 years). - 1760 N. Vermont Avenue, Hollywood, California 90027 (stumbling distance from the Tiki Ti)
