Friday night #Eating thread. What are you #Eating?

Submitted by Autocracy Now on February 22nd, 2013 at 6:58 PM

Just picked up a couple frozen salmon filets at Trader Joe's. The fiancée prefers yellowfin tuna, but these are lean times.

Who's #Eating well tonight?

Brisket (been on the smoker all afternoon),  lightly steamed snap peas, homemade scalloped taters, and an arugula/endive/spinach salad.  

Washed down with a cold Shiner Bock.  

Great day.  

I saw on Facebook that Tay Odom's is getting very close to realizing his dream of the #Eating gardens.  This was one of our proudest moments.  

#eating.  Hell yeah.

Nice, mild fillet, with some butter, garlic, season salt and dill. Baked until cooked, broiled until slightly browned. Ate mine, then when the wife said she wasn't feeling well, are hers too.

For tonight, we went with homemade chicken enchiladas with black beans and cilantro lime rice. As a result, it will not be an overly social evening in my house, but the meal was delicious all the same.

Seriously overpriced.  Not worth it at all, in my opinion.  If you want to sit at a trendy spot and you want to pay for that, then fine.  Otherwise, you can get better sushi for half the price a ton of other places, and you'll actually be able to see the people you're eating with.  

Which Katsuya are you going to?

...u must be thinking of SBE versions of the chain at LA Live, Hollywood or Brentwood...which are for tourists or industry types that are overpriced. Katsuya Studio City is not cheap but is reasonably priced and is great if u have kids b/c the they have a $6.50 combo meal for the little ones. And most of the excellent sushi spots in LA (Sushi Iki, Sasabune, Asanebo, Kiwami by Katsuya, and the now closed Sushi Nozawa (now closed)) are far more pricey than Katsuya and not as kid friendly. But I am always open to new suggestions.

I was thinking of the SBE one - I didn't realize that the Katsuya on Ventura wasn't affiliated.  We like Kabuki for kid-friendly sushi, although those can be hit and miss.  We used to go to Octopus in Burbank which is very good.  There are other sushi places named Octopus, and I'm not sure if it's the same (there was one in K-town under the building we lived in that was very different).  

Where in LA do you live?  I assume the valley if you have kids and you're going out in Studio City.  We're up in Valencia.

...Encino...but like Studio City Katsuya more than Encino. Yeah, Chef Uechi consults for the SBE group...and has some sort of interest in those, but if u go to Katsuya website, none of those restaurants are listed. There is an Octopus in Encino...but have heard bad things from that location...don't know if related. Friend in Pasadena goes to Kabuki and says it is family friendly.

Spring roll, pancake, lotus root salad, catfish soup.  Ann Arbor is getting a new Ramen Spot soon from Chef Takashi Yagihashi called Slurping Turtle.  He owns a Michelin Starred Restaurant in Chicago and also the original Slurping Turtle.  He also use to own a restauarant in Detroit called Tribute.  His son goes to state though so there's that.

Yagihashi didn't own Tribute; the Wisne's (Epoch Group) did.  "Tribute" was a tribute to their late daughter.  It was on the corner of 12 Mile and Orchard Lake in Farmington Hills.

Was lucky enough to go there a few times for special occasions before Yagihashi went out to Vegas for a bit before he set up camp in Chicago.

I ate perogis with ham.  And salad topped with crumbled clothbound cheddar.
