Tonight, we met my boyfriend’s friends for dinner. And, in the hopes of sampling a little bit of everything, we ordered a large variety of dishes to share. Among the four of us, our selections ranged from kobe style potstickers to spiced braised short ribs to sushi, ending with an assortment of desserts.
Having not eaten here for many, many years, I’d actually forgotten how fantastic the food is, along with the ambience. The dishes are beautifully plated and the room is chic and sophisticated. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and think that you will, too.
