Late Discoveries

God, I love sushi.

So much so that I suggested that we have some for dinner tonight.  It had been way too long.

No, the picture above is not what we had for dinner.

It is actually something I demolished several months ago with the help of my friend Teesha. 

But that's beside the point.

We went to dinner at a place we'd never been to, which had good reviews online.  It wasn't the very best sushi I've ever had, but what won me over was the atmosphere.  There were so many regulars there, I practically felt out of place being a newcomer.  The servers called out to customers by name when they came through the door.  The owner greeted everyone with a hearty "Hiiiiii!" when they entered.  Many people were asked "Do you want your normal table?".  It felt like the sort of place I'd want to come to regularly, just so they knew me and "my" table.

Alas, it is not to be.  We're moving within a couple of months.  It's sad when you make discoveries about places that have literally been right under your nose for years - I have ridden the train past this place (and a fantastic looking bistro not 100 feet away) twice every day for years.  And just now I've found it. 

It's not as if I won't be able to find good places to eat where we're going - there's a dozen restaurants I can name off the top of my head within the immediate area.  I guess I've just always been the kind of person who really starts to value something when I know I'm about to lose it.

Is there a lesson in all of this?

I'm just gonna be honest here. If I had only sushi to eat I would be sooooo skinny!

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
