ate raw fish with me
the restaurant: kanpai
location: westchester, just north of LAX
the occasion: love of friendship, love of sushi
heres a review a reader wrote on the Times’ Calendar section a little while back:
Get to know Peter, the head waiter. He is a sushi fanatic, and he will take care of you – I have never been disappointed by something he recommended. The quality of the fish is as high as any restaurant around. The non-sushi dishes are pretty good, but if you go to Kanpai and don’t eat the sushi, you’re wasting your time. This is not family-friendly Japanese food, but quality sushi for the purists out there. I highly recommend it, but make sure you have plenty of time to wait for the bill.
i couldnt agree more about Peter. bro knows everything. is very patient, will have the sushi chefs make your order the way you want. and will even remember you if you have a tiny habit of coming in with two knockouts.
i also made a buffoon of myself to the ladies. but thats nothing new.
