Beware of restaurants that boast of only a small plate menu.Please Mary and Joel this isn't a knock on Socal.it's the rage all over the country. You go online to Yelp or their websites to see the menu.
For some reason the pictures of the food is so much bigger than what they actually serve you. Trust me I'm not looking for Claim Jumper size portions.Valentines evening we had dinner in Studio City.We ordered a few plates.I was looking forward to the braised short rib with caramelized onion,etc.Waiter brings out this plate and the short rib was the size of a marshmallow.Umm hello didn't this cost 12.95? I'm laughing getting ready to shame the waiter and the manager in one clean swoop but the part time GF put the kibosh on that.So my point being unless you know the joint and have enjoyed it before stay away form this racket.This is like the 4th place in 3 months where I'm like " WTF is this food for midgets ?"JHC.
There's actually a diet called the "9-inch dinner plate" diet (or close to that), the reasoning is plates used to be that small, now Americans eat on pizza-sized plates.
Maybe the restaurants are listening to Ms. Obama and reducing your calorie intake.
Now you know exactly why I took my wife and my mistress for some In 'N Out last Thursday night.
Quality food at decent prices and extremely nice customer service staff.
Don'tchu got no In 'N Outs down there? I believe that's where they originated, no?
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Mike your gonna love this story. In the late 70's I meet this high roller in Vegas named Jimmy Lobianco. He tells me he owns a small piece of the Buggy Whip. So were drinking at Cleopatra's Barge @ Caesars.Next thing I know this lounge lizard singer named Eddie Fontaine comes over kissing Jimmy's azz.I'm like "who the eff is this guy,madon " He goes back on stage sings a few Sinatra songs,flirts with the ladies etc. Jimmy goes " this effen hump owes me 20 large,I'm gonna get it one way or the other" Fast forward to 3,4 years later I go down to the Buggy to see Jimmy and guess who's playing in that lounge area? None other than Eddie Fontaine. I was cracking up. Jimmy comes over and goes " I got my hooks in this M effer" Then he tells me this guy has been a hitman for years. Yeats later he got convicted for planning a hit after trying to strong arm some guy.
OK, I buy it that Eddie Fontaine owed some guy some money. But Eddie Fontaine was never a hit man. He was, however, convicted and sentenced to four years for offering a hack C&W singer money and a nice guitar to kill his wife but he appealed and he was freed on a technicality which had someting to do with inadmissable evidence (Eddie had a previous child molestation charge and other stuff on his record). Eddie had a hit rockabilly record (top 100 or so anyway) and could sing and write music. He also did pretty well acting in bit roles on forgettable TV shows like Kojack and Baretta. He was a regular on one TV series but the show didn't last long. Apparently he played the Fonz's father one time on Happy Days. He lived in Encino. He may have been a bit of a dirt bag but he wasn't the biggest chump ever and he did all right professionally.
The Buggy Whip has always been in the wrong part of town.
