Tonight, we swung by Sushi Zen, the Okinawa equivalent of Cheers. You can pop your head in any night of the week and always see someone you know (or someone John knows...but then, he knows a lot of people). The head Sushi chef used to have a restaurant in NYC till his mom got sick, so he moved back to his native Okinawa and opened up a hole in the wall with fantastic sushi and edamame. It's hard to have a distinguishable edamame but let me tell you, it's the best I've ever had.
So as we were wrapping up our meal, John's friend Heather came in Sushi Zen with 3 very large, shiny, practically still squirming tuna from an afternoon fishing trip. She gave them to the chef, and then we got to watch him fillet and serve. What a great community!
