Haven't had a chance to blog lately. Just become a grandmother and have been in Los Angeles since late September. Have had some fantastic meals. To list a few:
Boa on Sunset - amazingly trendy. In fact the night we were there, Lindsay Lohan's father managed to vomit on some patrons. Luckily we were nowhere near him, but could see the paps following him as he left (being abused by the wife of the recipient!). Heaps of other celebrities were there, but to tell the truth, unless someone told me, I wouldn't recognise them. Director Michael Bay (Armageddon, Pearl Harbour, Transformers) was amongst them and Petra Eccelstone.
We also went to Nobu. I love their food.
Katsuya in Brentwood - also very good. Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi is indeed a master. The Phillipe Starck design was amazing.
Yatai (on Sunset), a tiny little restaurant with no signage, just a wooden door. We had the Tapas Sushi - Baked Crab Hand Roll, Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice Burger, Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Nasu-Miso (Japanese Eggplant with Miso Sauce), Crispy Vegetable Gyoza, Popcorn Shrimp and Kingfish with Jalapenos. All Amazing, particularly the Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice Burger. 9/10
