We’ve been out and about with the doggy in Santa Monica.
We’ve been to the ballet.
Omakase. Trust your Itamae. With instructions courtesy of our friendly and efficient wait staff. (No dipping! Dipping allowed.) Technorati tags: Sushi Sasabune. Cross posted on akatsukieats.
Looks like I won’t be swaying to the sound of Keane next month. Bummer.
After a half-hearted attempt to enjoy some jazz on Thursday, we gave up and went for more palatable sushi instead at Sushi Isshin (Lindbrook and Tiverton, Westwood). We’ve had all sorts of food at Isshin: bento for lunch, tempura, california-style rolls (like black dragon and caterpillar), chirashisushi, noodles. But we’ve never been on a Thursday, […]

We’ve been away. And now we’re back to the crazy heat of LA. It had been impossible to do anything in the daytime for at least a fortnight until it finally cooled off last weekend. Which meant the weather was finally to my taste, and we could hit the beach. Manhattan Beach for a change. […]
