Just curious if anyone has tried his restaurant in Santa Monica? I love his recipes... but would like them so much more if someone else made them!

Once my husband took a $60 taxi from the airport to pick up take out (while I waited biting my nails at the airport wondering if he would be back in time for the remainder our flight). We had the best food on the plane journey to Toronto in all these wonderful little paper take out boxes. Everyone wanted our food!!!

Been there. Overpriced and over-heavy for my stomach and that's when I was first starting and doing lots of dehydrated. Fell asleep before we hit the fwy. which is not a good sign for me. Then again, it may have just been my choices.
Best place I've found currently is Terra Bella in Redondo.
Overall, it was a good, albeit pricey, experience. Everything our party ordered seemed to have a lot of the same seasonings. I don't recommend it as a regular dining spot, but to go there to check it out, get some ideas and try some different things.
btw... imo, his recipes in his book are rather complicated and have unusual ingredients. Not a great beginner's recipe book... just throwing that in for any Newbies reading this thread ;)

I call his book RAW a coffee table book, that and Roxanne Klein's/Charlie Trotter's which has beautiful photos of food but the ingredeints and preparation is daunting.
Usually takes many other recipes to make a recipe, and quite a few steps along with exotic obscure ingredients.
There's another place on the other side of LA near Hollywood called The Goddess Cafe, the prices are reasonable and the menu isn't over complex. Lots of salads and a few choice sandwiches and yummy drinks.

I just visited his website and the photos of the food are wonderful. Very artistic bordering on manic. (Like all true artists?) Made me curious about edible flowers but I was not interested in getting the recipes. Just google Juliano.
