To Live & Dine in LA

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
– George Bernard Shaw

In my life, food is not only a physical necessity, but a soulful requirement.  I cherish the moments of my day that I dedicate to food. Every bite, sip, and even the sizzle in my cast iron pan make me tingle.  Call me a foodie, a glutton, or a fatty… whatever suits your fancy; I just LOVE food.  So in a quest to continue engorging myself in the world’s best cuisine, I’ve compiled a list of restaurants that I must dine at before I die.

“Great restaurants are, of course, nothing but mouth-brothels.  There is no point in going to them if one intends to keep one’s belt buckled.”
– Frederic Raphael
