Thanks as usual to the board. Just when I thought I'd been to most of the great sushi bars, I tried Shimizu which is not my normal stomping grounds and had a great time. Only me and one other customer in the place-is that typical for a Thursday night? Omakase sashimi and sushi of course. Had one (and sometimes two) of everything that they had. Wonderful! The other customer was telling me that he loved it as well (interestingly he just moved to NY to manage a hotel in town and they're importing Gordon Ramsey to open their restaurant). Blissfully staggered around the corner for a flodel (yodel on steroids) from Fluff-outrageous! Then stopped back in my nabe to try Lederhosen-great beer/great pretzel/great bauernwurst. No wonder I can't lose weight.
