Best Meal You’ve ever had: One time, my husband and I had a big certificate to Uchiko (Chef Paul Qui’s restaurant), and, feeling rich … my husband snapped the menu shut, and simply told the waiter, “Dazzle us.” (PS he never talks like this). We ended up spending the equivalent of our monthly mortgage that night on top of the gift certificate, but it was worth it! Tasting after tasting of beautifully-composed, non-traditional sushi rolls, like my favorite, the Tiger Cry: Cured wagyu beef, rice paper, red pepper, charred green onion. It’s not for purists, but it’s a tasty little bite.
If you had a mission statement, what would it be? Be a better listener.
