    Lorrie Manresa I have found to be hit and miss the first time I went it was fantastic the second time I was disappointed items were cool not hot when served and the third time it was great again? I have heard this from friends as well. Thanks for sharing!

    believe it or not, the beef is the same as French Laundry (i think they're the only 2 restaurants that get it) but i do agree w/ you there. TFL simply grilled it and that's all it needs.

    i can understand liking French Laundry better - i just don't.

    Hmm it could be what people refer to as a hit and miss. some of the dishes were definitely delicious while others left me . I am definitely not opposed to going back again, but on a food tastiness scale, at the moment I am a huge fan of Michael Mina's ...

    yup, i've heard many of the same things from friends who have gone to Manresa. I am not opposed to visiting again at another time of the year ... perhaps summer? haha ...
