    LA is overrated for EVERYTHING.
    Only thing I have truly loved there was The Getty Museum.

    Everything else is a fucking shitshow.

    Vegas has one of the best concentrations of excellent restaurants imo. One of the few reasons I still keep coming back.

    Preach. I'm amazed that the best steak I've ever had was a dry-aged at Capital Grill. A long way from an overly fancy place, but it sure was incredible.

    +1 Vegas, one of the best meals I’ve ever had was at Joes Seafood Steak and Crab in Caesars Palace. I still think about the stone crab, and their lobster tail and filet surf and turf was divine.

    I really like the idea of Vegas, it checks a lot of boxes for me imo.

    I rarely go though, I should fix that

    Definitely. We went a few weeks ago, everything was wonderful except for the gnocchi which were just good (technically perfect gnocchi but flavouring needed more depth). Top notch serving and atmosphere.

    For everyone saying SF is top in the USA, how many years has it been since you've went? I was just there for a week, company expensed trip, ate at as many places as I could and man it was forgettable.

    Nashville was far better. So was Vegas.
    I can eat more hot wings than you.

    He decided on Burger Baron. 99th Street in Edmonton.

    SF is the most over-rated city in the US. Last time I went was pre-covid, and it was already had a pretty solid disgusting shithole vibe.

    Overall California is over-rated, and I would never choose to live there.

    I had a good meal in San Francisco last time I was there. Then I stopped outside and I was still in SF and that sucked.

    Most disappointing trip I have had in the last 10 years.

    The secret is going across the bridge into Sausalito. Scomas is worthy of note

    leaving San Francisco is usually a good idea, yep.

    I like San Diego.
    Best seaside town in the state. It's the one I'd choose to spend tourist dollars in.

    I've been many times and it's the one place I find myself thinking I could live.
    But it's probably that bias thing where you Gail to recognize the difference between living at a place vs vacationing there.

    But LoL it just made the Racine & Laramie Tobacconist come up in my Facebook feed. Hands down, the best tobacconist shop I've ever been to. Incredible!
    Thanks for listening, Google!

    *It's in Old Town San Diego...

    La Jolla leaves a lot to be desired culinary wise given the prestige of the San Diego area “village”… was in old town a million years ago, remember enjoying it, but don’t remember any details

    If you get a chance you should check out the original location in South Beach.
