My dear friend of three decades, Rob Fischer, has opened another restaurant! If you’ve been to Palo Alto, you probably have had the best burger and milkshake of your life at the The Creamery, a classic and delicious American diner. In February Rob opened Reposado, fine Mexican cooking in an awesome space on Hamilton Avenue where the the atmosphere is fabulous, fun, and energized. If you find yourself in Palo Alto, California, definitely visit REPOSADO RESTAURANT, say hello to Rob and tell him Lori Lynn sent you!
UPDATE: I just spoke with Rob. Mention Lori Lynn’s blog and he will be more than happy to serve you a complimentary appetizer with your meal! YAY! Oh, definitely take him up on this!

  1. Gosh, these are gorgeous and delicious looking food!

    Oh my this is so close by to where I live. I’ll have to let my husband know about it. Really, I can say that? LL sent me? I’ll try, that’ll be nice to say hello to Rob!

  2. LL,
    You asked what I was drinking….
    Hendricks on the rocks, a splash of tonic and 2 limes.
    Wish I were in Calif., that food looks damn good!

  3. Those look so good. I have a couple of cousins living in Palo Alto. I think I may bribe them in giving the place a try.

  4. There’s the grilled corn on the cob!! Glad that I’m not the only one substituting the traditional mayonnaise. Lime butter…how interesting!!

  5. Ooh, I’ve never been to a fine Mexican restaurant– will need to seek one out now! 🙂

  6. Lori Lynn,

    You’ve done a great job of capturing the experience at Reposado…and I can attest to the fact that they’re the “Best-You’ve-Ever Had Handmade Corn Tortillas”. Trust me, I know mexican food.


  7. That all looks so good! When is he opening up in Boston?

    I’m thinking I might have to try that Lobster dish…

  8. I will try to visit Palo Alto soon. All the dishes you show look great. Thanks for the recommendation.

  9. My husband grew up in the area, my first visit he brought me to the Creamery. When he was in school he actually used to work down the street. Palo Alto was sorely in need of a good Mexican restaurant – we’ll definitely be trying this…now if only I could get the inlaws to try Mexican…..

  10. Wonderful and creative looking food…I would definitely order the gordita de langosta and the huachinango! Good luck to Rob…and if I’m ever in Palo Alto, I know where to go!

  11. I have a dear friend with connections to Palo Alto. He grew even dearer to me while reading this post! Mamma mia, all the food I crave and don’t get here in Vienna! Adobo, heavens help me! 🙂

  12. WOW, they all look so good…yummie! Too bad it is too far from where we live (Southern California). By the way, thank you so much for visiting my site.

  13. Everything looks delicious!!

    I hope you fared well during the earthquake. They said it was south of L.A. My mother in law is in Belmont Shore L.B., she felt it pretty good.

  14. I don’t know where to begin, it all looks so good! The corn dishes look absolutely mouth watering! I love it!Palo Alto here I come!

  15. Hey All!

    Thanks for your nice comments. Rob is looking forward to meeting you. EAT. DRINK. RELAX.

    Lori Lynn
