    FOOD!

    OK, I know that second only to great photographs or out photographing for photographers is food or more to the point where to go. So I'm asking all you western half of the US. Where is the best place to eat while out on a fieldtrip.
    An example for me is I took a John Sexton workshop and we went as a group to a dinner in Carmel Valley that had the best Cheese/chili soup.
    Lets share.
    I don't want any of that Scotish dinner McDonald's!

    In the Tucson area, this is a no brainer. Best Mexican restaurant, for my vote, goes to El Torrero. Don't know the address, but it is at south 4th avenue and 26th street (north west corner), just behind the pawn shop, so you won't find it unless some one tells you about it. Wonderful Sonoran style food, great staff, "interesting" atmosphere and very inexpensive prices. Same owners and waitresses for many years and incredible food.

    Cameo on 82nd and Sandy in Portland. Perfect place to go for breakfast after photographing the sunrise. They have jugs of REAL maple syrup on every table and sell their delicious pancakes by the acre.

    San Francisco - that's a place where it's hard to get a bad meal. Really like the Asian places, especially Thai. Also the seafood.

    Mountain View - anything along Castro Street (that's why the locals call it "gastro street")

    Napa Valley - Trevigne

    Monterey - Rapa's at the end of Fisherman's Wharf is great for lunch

    Yep I eat out alot when I am on the road. Especially in the winter. These are where I like to go. In the SUmmer, in the mountains go to a grocery or deli get a sandwich and eat it in the aspens or pines. Everything tastes better outside, even Balogna

    If you are down near San Diego, in Encinitas, there's a place called "La Especial Norte". Best I've had in the area. They were in last year's Saveur magazines. They have about a dozen mexican soups to try out. Its a couple of blocks off the beach which is nice.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
