Sushi Azabu – NYC

4 May

he8:  Not sure if the sushi was amazing or if it was she8 and her frozen smile from eating sushi back in NYC that made me love this place. Little of both, I think.

she8:  Tiny spot located in the basement of another restaurant with only 4 tables and the sushi melted like butter on your tongue. However, I could have swallowed my chopstick and had a fabulous time. With he8 and back home in NYC.  My two favorite ingredients!

we8:  FLUKE CARPACCIO, “WAGYU” BEEF – TATAKI (Thinly Sliced Wagyu-beef, Japanese Radish, Onion, White Radish Sprouts with Garlic), RED SNAPPER  NIGIRI, AMBERJACK KAMA, NEGITORO-MAKI (Blue Fin Tuna and Scallion Roll), GREEN TEA ICE CREAM (fruit & mochi).

Parlor – New York

19 Apr

he8:  It’s like they took CBGB’s, shoved it into skinny jeans and taught it how to cook.

she8:  Cool members club. Gorgeous models hang from the wall. A mixologist pouring. But the army of Magnolia cupcakes marching towards me stole the show.

we8:  Hanger steak with spinach and wasabi mashed potatoes, Grilled salmon with risotto, ravioli (but we don’t remember as a result of a mixologist mixing madness).
