45 S Mentor Ave, Pasadena, CA 91106
This restaurant is very highly regarded in the area, and has a great reputation among the locals. Although the food was ok - it was just that ok. I wasn't impressed at all - especially at $30 a plate. Smitty's, which is just a few block away on Lake, has much better food at lower prices. I don't mind paying the high price, but I want high quality as well - the food at Bistro 45 was average quality - not high end at all.

This is a pretty good restaurant, but not great. If you want something in the Montrose area that is more high end than Black Cow or Rocky Cola, this is the next best thing. For really high end in the Montrose area I would rather go to 3 Drunken Goats or New Moon.

They have a good selection of roasted chicken dishes and kebab plates. Good place to go if you are looking for 'fast food' type kebab food, that is not super expensive, but that is still good quality. I like every dish I've tried, except the chicken sandwich - which was a bit bland. But recommend the chicken plates, the beef plate and all sides.
J's Maid Service
3550 Foothill Blvd, La Crescenta, CA 91214
I called their cleaning service to schedule a day for maid service. The lady mentioned that they would first need to come out and look at my place and give me a quote. We schedule a time on the following Monday from 12 to 12:30 pm. I rushed home from work, and waited until 1 pm. They never showed. I even called them at around 12:40, and got a voicemail. I was very disappointed and irritated. I re-shuffled meetings and my schedule in order to be home by 12 so that I could get this quote, and they didn't even have the courtesy to call and cancel. I have yet to hear from them. Would not recommend. Not dependable.

I found out about this restaurant in the AAA magazine. It's very casual, and good prices. The food is very authentic and tasty. The plantains were probably the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is trendy, but casual and comfortable at the same time. I had the seafood plate - but looking forward to going back - their braised pork looked delicious, and I loved their salad selections.
The Bar Method
8416 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048
The staff is friendly, the instructors are all great, never intimidating, and the workout itself is very effective and fun. The only thing I wish they had was more than one shower. Other than that great!
