Two Glendale Mentions In The L.A. Times

I was going to post about two Glendale mentions in the LA Times this morning but was beaten to the punch by Patty at her excellent Eating L.A. blog.

The first mention in The Times was a very favorable review of Palate, the new restaurant and wine store on Brand. Anne and I had an excellent meal there shortly after they opened.

From the review:
"With a short, seasonal menu, nothing over $20, and a killer wine list and cheese selection, Palate lives up to its full name in a big way. For food and wine lovers, Glendale just became a destination."
The second Glendale mention was in a corporate profile of Panda Express. It turns out that the Glendale Galleria was the site of the first Panda Express, which was derived from the Panda Inn restaurant in Pasadena. Who knew? Sadly, my first exposure to Chinese food was at the Panda Express at Fedco on LaCienega. Downtown Glendale also has a Panda Inn, though I would definitely recommend Fortune Inn at Broadway/Maryland before Panda.

Chi Dynasty in Los Feliz is back and really can't be beat for Chinese food

Thanks, I'll check it out. I haven't had much Chinese in Glendale except for Fortune Inn.

Kozy Korner on Wilson is Thai but also has some Chinese dishes. I haven't tried the Chinese dishes but everything I've had there has been excellent.
