  • I can vouch for Blue Ribbon Sushi. Here is my vouching: omg omg omg.

    Per Se is on my list of restaurants to visit when I have serious money. I visit their website a lot.

  • Alex, I haven’t eaten at Blue Ribbon Sushi, but I have eaten at Blue Ribbon Brasserie. If the quality spans over the entire group, I am pretty excited.

    I’ve eaten at Bouchon Bakery, which has some freaking amazing, well, everything. Probably the best lunch I’ve had in the States.

    Thanks for commenting. I didn’t realize any of my LJ friends followed my blog. 🙂

  • Truffle Scented Gruyere? Now THAT is a $45 soup and sammich I’d have to try. (To channel Jennifer Love Hewitt, I would “totally” get the truffles)
