My girlfriend has a hankering for the perfect seared ahi, preferabbly with a pepper crust. She would not mind the ahi being served as part of a salad, but she wants perfectly fresh and seared properly rare ahi.
Proximity to Santa Monica a plus.
BTW - despite all common sense telling us to go elsewhere and order otherwise, we both had a truly mediocre ahi salad at the World Cafe on Main Street in Santa Monica this weekend. In our defense, it was gorgeous out and there was a nice table available on the patio.
