Restaurant Review: Whisknladle

The atmosphere at Whisknladle on Wall Street in La Jolla is probably the best example of laid back, classy-casual dining, maybe in the whole city.  The covered patio is just gorgeous and airy yet comfortable and cozy- read: “romantic”.  They […]

Restaurant Review – Lefty’s Chicago Pizzeria

outsideleftys

Pizza Hut.  Papa Johns. Dominos. (Little Caesars doesn’t even count because it’s actually cardboard); all these places are inferior! You here me? Inferior!
