It’s kind of spicy, and they use uninformed turkey and all of a mixture we would find in a bánh mì, though it’s on their thick-cut white bread and it’s out of this world. They make some of a best sandwiches and pastries and salads in Los Angeles. It’s one of my favorite places for lunch. we had a fattoush salad, too. When we go with we to lunch, I’m going to wish to share, so we separate both.
For dinner, we had sushi with my daughter during Sushi One, that is wonderful. They have a $25 special where we get a play of miso soup, afterwards we get 10 pieces of pristine, ideal sushi, and afterwards a outrageous play of udon noodles in soup. And we leave as full as if we ate $100 value of food.

She’s a good improviser. we brought her with me to accommodate Norman Lear. we like bringing people to accommodate Norman Lear since they feel like they’re assembly God. I feel like when we go to see him, we shouldn’t keep him all to myself. You gotta share Norman Lear.
That night, we got Indian smoothness from a smashing place that we like called Amar Desh. we always sequence approach too most food. we don’t know why. It contingency be a Jewish thing. we have to make certain there’s adequate for everybody. What if a smoothness man wants to eat with us? we don’t know. So we sequence approach too much. And afterwards we have it in a fridge for a subsequent day or so, and that’s fun, too.

Burgers Never Say Die is a tip backyard hamburger pop-up that’s been going for a few months now, and we have to know somebody to get in there. And luckily we knew somebody, since it’s one of a best burgers I’ve ever had in my life. Absolutely incredible. He smashes a burger … it looks like a meatball to start, like we would find in a meatballs and spaghetti. And afterwards he smashes it onto a roaster so that it gets super skinny and it gets almost, like — they call it a “meat lace.” Crispy, crispy edges. And we get dual of those, both lonesome with cheese, on a buttered, soothing bun. Then they dress it unequivocally simply with only onions, ketchup, and mustard, and you’ve died and left to burger heaven.

Another outing to République, to take my print for this story! It’s one of my favorite restaurants, though there are dual things we should know: It’s unequivocally tighten to my house, and full disclosure, I’m an investor. But to be fair, I’m an financier in over 20 restaurants.
I saw something on a menu that I’d never seen before: a chili, though finished with steep confit. With an egg on it. we don’t know that if when we brew steep confit into chili it’s technically chili anymore, though we theory it is. It tasted a lot like chili, with duck, and it was one of a best chilies I’d ever had.
There’s a sushi bar on Larchmont that we had never tried, and I’ve lived here 11 years. My mother and we motionless to try it; it’s called Kiku Sushi. They have a $50 omakase that’s so fantastic. You get so most food that we indeed told them to stop. There’s a deal!
