Where to go for good "jack of all trades"Japanese restaurant?

Suehiro Cafe in J-Town. My Chowpup often asks for it by name.

No nigiri, but there are sushi rolls and occasional sashimi sightings.

C'mon guys, if October isn't the frickin' month for beer and more beer, then I don't know what is.

If you could go to one restaurant on your birthday, what restaurant would it be ??????

I just went last month.

High brow humor?

But I've made no mention of the occipitofrontalis muscle... ;-)

BTW do chickens even have a brow? If so, how does it taste after high binchotan heating?

Nobu Malibu, on the beach side of PCH, has anyone been ??? Is it a decent place to get a couple of drinks and maybe a tartare or a dish or two, i mean the food probably sucks, but how's the view and eye candy.??????????????

Nobu's forte is not his nigiri. It's his Peruvian-inspired fusion dishes.

Kokekokko (Little Tokyo) Will Close in Late January 2015

On the bright side, I am done announcing restaurant closures (for today).

Rumor is that the building is changing hands, and the current tenants are leaving...

And with the yen relatively weaker against the dollar, maybe now is a good time to go to Kyoto for another tabe aruki...

Red Medicine Announces It Will Close at the End of October

Polarizing or not, business has been slipping. I was there a month back (Friday night, just after midnight).

Crickets... Just my party eating, and 1 couple at the bar sipping drinks.

Who said we couldn't imbibe the ambrosia of the gods across state lines, in say, Las Vegas?

Might as well... the the terrine de foie gras pairs much better with Hungarian Tokaji anyways.

... and a free Ike's sandwich, to boot.
