an equal opportunity eater.
Taking the neurosis out of food, one meal at a time.

What does the Restless Chef do between meals? Scours her inbox for restaurant deals. I'm already lusting after this one at Kendall's in the Music Center and this Gourmet Happy Hour at Fraiche, although Culver City is so blinking far from Altadena.
Too far to drive on a lazy Saturday afternoon? There's always Magnolia on Lake, whose happy hour starts at 4:30 and then a short toddle over to Le Petit Vendome for a little wine tasting. They used to do one dollar pours on Saturdays, but now they moved that to Thursday night. They have a very tempting cheese and pate selection to go with their delightful wines.
Sunday seems pretty parched for happy hours, but after a weekend of mole prep I love to clamber onto a high stool at Ruth's Chris. They have terrific deals on drinks and little bites, and it runs on Sunday! Oh dear, I think I'm getting thirsty--maybe this weekend I won't cook at all. Do you have any favorite deals you're willing to share?
