I finally made it to Soho Sushi, the Chipotle of sushi places. I don’t mean that as a slam (I confess: I like Chipotle), but the concept: build-your-own sushi, approachable ingredients, a good way to try out a possibly unfamilar cuisine– is Chipotle-like. It’s located […]

Friday Five: Indian

Friday Five: Indian

Review: Shaan India

Ah, Indian food. There’s probably no one cuisine I crave more. Throughout our relationship, it’s been my goal to make The Better Half like Indian food. So far, I’ve been pretty successful. I make Tandoori-style chicken at home, and he has actually said to me, […]

Disclosure: I’m not only on the board of Falcon Theater, I’m their director of social media and publicity.  I haven’t talked as much about the theater here as of late, but this one’s a perfect match to you, my readers. Swear. So, we don’t really […]

Review: Habit’s Cafe

Review: Habit’s Cafe

Habit’s is an Oakley standby. They’re known for bar food, burgers, and their convenient location before and after events at the 20th Century Theater, or just as a neighborhood hangout. For me, my exposure to Habits came a bit later in life, as I’ve never […]
