I got nothin'

Rather I really have too much. There is still so much to recount about our recent Seattle trip over the Thanksgiving holiday. Unfortunately, it has already been quite a while and my memory is not what it used to be. (To be completely honest, it was never all that great.) In an attempt to start to clear out the flog inbox, I will relive our Sushiman experience.
We were very fortuate that all of the places that we wanted to visit happened to have accomodating schedules that week. Salumi was open on Wednesday and Sushiman was open the day after Thanksgiving so we had a chance to visit twice. Something about living in LA really increases the desire for great sushi. For some reason, there just seems to be no great places here. Many come close. Nobu has decent fish and a great atmosphere but it doesn't have everything and is just not special. Sushi Karen in Culver City has really great yellowtail but is not an overall wonderful experience. We still visit whenever we are in the area though. Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
As it was lunch, we decided to each try one of the lunch specials. She got the sashimi plate and I the sushi plate. Much to our dissapointment, Bobby was not present that day. The fish, as it always is, was great. Even the day after Thanksgiving so you know it wasn't delivered that day, it was still quite good. They use only wild, Alaskan salmon so this is obviously our favorite here. A few months ago, when we were in Seattle, we actually again made two stops at Sushiman in a single day. There for a little appetizer before heading to my dad's house for dinner. Then for a delicious dessert of salmon and toro sashimi. We actually closed the place down that night. Bobby was behind the bar and he is a very friendly, very chatty person. So we talked about sushi and many other things until about half an hour past closing. This is truly just a wonderful place. Anyone with an opportunity should go. Sorry that I cannot recall more details but it has been so long. Serious sushi craving now though.
