last nite a friend and i went to sea sea saw's goodbye weekend. holy moly!!! saw ccccl111 (is that the right number of c's?) and i am jack's brain and both of their wives. we were all standing at the bar and oooohing and ahhhing at all of the fabulous things - luscious tomatoes with fressh mozz and shaved grilled octapus. mushrooms steamed in parchment with noodles that was to die for. pork on rice buns. soft shell crab sandwhiches. and wave after wave after wave of amazing fresh fish, too many to name. and all for 35 bucks. we had processeco at 8 bucks a glass.
it was bittersweet. the food was amazing, the quality sublime. the whole point was to clear out the food because sea saw closes tonite. i'm so sorry that sea saw wasn't able to make it. i am happy chef nobuo is looking at a new venture in central, and dare i say it, downtown phoenix. that makes me happy. but its never a proud moment when such a landmark closes. its obvious chef loves what he does, and its clear that he has major skills.
i was glad i was able to enjoy his send off, and i look forward to his new place. but i am giving them a moment of silence this afternoon. farewell, sea saw. we hardly knew you.
