She later went to become a co-host of ABC Daytime's hit show The View, which won its first daytime Emmy during her time at the show. In 2011, Lisa will have her own series on the new channel, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network called Our America with Lisa Ling. Lisa was a special correspondent for CNN's Planet in Peril series and is a contributing editor for USA Today's USA Weekend magazine. She is the co-author of "Mother, Sister. Daughter, Bride: Rituals of Womanhood," and "Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and The Other's Fight to Bring Her Home" that she penned with her sister Laura. She also serves on the Board of Directors for the California Museum.

    Beer braised beef brisket, Carolina style pulled pork and more conventional BBQ chicken sandwiches are all available here. The pulled pork is great, but the beef brisket has a juiciness to it that can be tasted even without the many sauces they have on the menu. Chicken wings that taste like they were cooked on an open fire are a delight. Sides include creamed and fried vegetables and mac and chee ... read more >

    The Tasting Kitchen on Abbot Kinney in Venice is an eclectic restaurant that looks as much as a studio housing an art collection as the eye can tell but beneath the decor is a venue that is a lot like an Italian trattoria that serves amazing pasta dishes including the can't-miss lamb ragu. However, the menu is constantly varied and that means you'll get different tasting menus and different dishes ... read more >

    "It’s as much a restaurant as a bar, so what better way to celebrate an entire evening (for whatever occasion) at one venue? You can enjoy traditional tapas dishes and fusion sushi and various other tasty morsels. If you prefer, you can have a sit down meal in an environment that’s as classy as a modern art gallery (a tasteful one that no one would be offended by). Drinks include cocktails that ha ... read more >

    "Sushi here includes Albacore, Tuna, Salmon, Snapper, Yellowtail, and Halibut. All good, healthy and delicious. The oyster sashimi is excellent and filling. Portions are generous. The “Trust Me” (as in, most probably, “Trust me, I’m a chef”) menus are excellent and a great introduction to sushi for novices and a nice way to get a good rounded fix for sushi addicts."

    "With various dumpling kinds not just limited to the pork, Din Tai Fung is so popular that they had to open two branches. Unlike other dumpling shops that require you speak a little Chinese, Din Tai Fung employs English speaking waiters that will serve your food fast. Shrimp and vegetable, Chinese greens, chicken and various other kinds of dumpling filling are on offer. The pork chow mein dishes a ... read more >
