grabbed a lunch at Montecito. It's a bad theme restuarant that left it's taste back in California. The owners think that square feet equals success and sadly this airport hangar filled with predictable food and tacky memorabilia will not make it on any must eat list. Tip to owners: know your audience - this jack astors and no different.

I had Lunch today at Bam Breakfast & Bistro, the most amazing burger I had in a long time. The place is very colourful and clean, they have comics and a cool art wall. Must check it out.
