    The first place I ate at in America. Classic American diner - just like I had seen on TV. Built in a L shape with leatherette seats around the windows and individual seats lining up in front of the counter / cooking area. There is a small enclosed patio area in front of the building. I understand the restaurant is open 24 hours and I ate here at various times from early morning to late at night. Great for people watching - especially when you are from overseas as I was. The staff are friendly but I found the evening staff more willing to chat but it was not so busy in the early evenings.
    Far more expensive than other places locally I am told but reasonable for English people or Europeans in general.

    Favorite Dish: I ate mainly breakfast here - the sausages and bacon were well cooked and the eggs cooked to order. In the evening I had burgers and these were good too.
    I could not understand why I was always brought iced water when I constantly refused it but this is a minor point.

    The first restaurant I ate at in America. The restaurant is on a busy street in a pleasant residential area but a huge heavy full panelled door which was closed is not a welcome entry to a restaurant.
    Inside there are two rooms - the rooms have high ceilings and the front one has a bar area and walls covered in photos of film stars who may have eaten here - I must admit a quick glance at some told me I had never heard of them.
    The second room was more of a function room the party I was with was booked in to. Again there was a bar but the room was dark and very cold - on a cold January night it desperately needed heating.
    The staff were however attentive and food was ordered and brought to the table reasonably quickly.
    Although a jazz night was advertised there was no sign of the act and we left at 10.30.

    Favorite Dish: I had spaghetti with meat balls. The portion was a good size and value for money but as I came to its end there was a pool of oil at the bottom of the plate. I know this is usual but the amount of oil seemed excessive.

    Nice, dark, moody lighting with Spanish theme. Indulge your senses in the ethnic music, deep reds, browns, and crimsons, and the tantalizing food.

    Service is really questionable...both times I went I waited awhile to get drinks...and get a double if your ordering cocktails!

    Favorite Dish: ~Ensalada Ole (grilled chicken, avacado, goat cheese, and roasted pepper salad)

    ~Flat Iron Steak (DO NOT get if you hate anchovies!)

    ~Bruschetta Barcelona (Grilled bread w/ pesto, tomatoes, goat cheese, and garbonzo beans)

    ~Beef Empenada
