You: “Hey (Potential Date), I would love to take you to a nice restaurant for dinner and maybe a drink or two!” [Translation: Let me impress you by taking you out for a moderately-priced dinner with a decent bottle of wine. It will get us tipsy, but I am not going to spend an arm and a leg.]
Potential Date: “That would be great! I LOVE sushi! Can we go to a sushi restaurant?” [Translation: Steak and taters gets me all bloated and – just in case – I don’t want that nor the resulting gas.]
You: “That sounds PERFECT!” [Translation: I hate sushi, but I would rather you not be gassy either so… I am going to take you to a place where we can get the best of both worlds!]
Has this scenario happened to the #tastebuds?
The sushi is just plain good. They have a fantastic, homemade variety that includes everything from your standard rolls to vegetarian rolls to a few creative options. It is all freshly made, so there is no need to worry about it getting funky
in the process.
Personally, we love Lemongrass for its “other” menu. You can find everything from perfectly prepared Pad Thai to Pacific Rim Chicken. We order that with extra, um, “Rim Sauce” (grin). To be honest, we can’t select just one item off the menu to rave most about because it is all pretty darn fantastic. The service is equally as great as the food. The staff is knowledgeable and patient, polite yet efficient. They know the menu like the back of their hand and they will take the time to answer any questions that you might have. Pete and Char, the owners, are often there greeting you up front. If they learn your name, they will remember it for years to come. That’s the kind of place Lemongrass is; fine dining at a very reasonable price with hole-in-the-wall service.
As you might suspect, since the #tastebuds have two hands each and four thumbs between us, we give Lemongrass Fusion Bistro “four wasabi-covered thumbs up”! Oh, and when you go ask for extra “squishy bread”. Trust us. They will know what you mean.
