Here is a scoop for all you foodies. There is a brand new, nearly unknown French restaurant in my neck of the woods and the food is AMAZING. There are no other words for it. It's a small totally unpretentious place called the Canyon Bistro. It's tucked in Topanga Canyon, so hidden and out of sight no one knows about it yet unless they live there. I just received an e-mail featuring a special prix-fixe, five course dinner for Valentine's day. Here is the menu, and I'm telling you for 65 bucks and free corkage it really is a bargain. 'm going. And no I'm not paid to say this.
