Bitter and Sweet

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while. I have no excuse, but being lazy. :) Anyways, what an exciting week for us. We were honored by the presence of Jamie Ford, the author of the New York Times Bestseller Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. It is such a good book. In fact, it had some hand in giving me inspiration for our menu. The book really made me reflect upon the whole dynamics between immigrant parents and american born children and the loss you never realized will be lost when someone passes. It is a very heart felt book. Makes me think about my family and what I take for granted and makes me laugh when I see the similarities between my grandmother and parents' school of thought compared to that of mine. Yes, my siblings and I are not alone! Also, along the same line of excitement, we are super amped that we got a chance to serve Lori Matsukawa. From where I stood, my little spy perch in the kitchen, she looked just as lovely in person as she does on TV. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to talk to her, but my sister said she is very kind. Thanks to the Japanese Cultural Center for sending both of these amazing people our way. Virtual high five guys.

On another note, every Sunday we will have jazz night. A kind gentleman by the name, Frank "Stainless" Steele will be performing every Sunday evening. You should all come down and have a nice quiet dinner then sit back and relax with a nice glass of red wine and a creamy pate choux as Frank titillate your senses with his smooth notes. Sounds so sexy doesn't it? Maybe I'm in the wrong business. I should write ads or something. Oh well, in the next lifetime I guess. Okie dok, you all take care. I'll check back in real soon. Come check out fried chicken Tuesday, Oxtail Wednesday, Adobo Thursday, Korean braised ribs Friday and our new beers we have on tap! Before I go, this is for KK....hella! Okay, that's out of my system. Update soon!
