WOW!! Great report!
We'll be out in SoCal in late Nov. - early Dec. We planned on going to Phillipe's as one of our meals, and like you, wondered about the lamb. We read lots of good reports about it, but we dislike the "gamier" taste of mutton. After your report, we'll skip the lamb and stick with the beef.
Again, I'm glad to see that my report is steering people well, even if it's steering people away from what I did. (I think you're making the right choice; if you don't like lamb, I don't think this will be the magic lamb that changes your opinion.) ScreamingChicken, mar52
