Sushi of Gari 46 – NYC

Sushi Gari 46

I had to add this photo for the simple reason it makes me hungry every time I see it!  And to think that just a few years ago I wouldn’t even think about eating raw fish.  I blame my Zoology degree and deep understanding of zoonotic diseases.  It’s hard to eat something when you know it could spawn some sort of intestinal worm inside of you.  Our friends Mike and Ian were in town and we all decided it was time to go out and have some quality sushi.  Everything at Sushi Gari was perfect, minus the moment that the manager realized that we were done and started saying, “OK, you go now, clear table, more customer behind you!”

A sampling of the items we ordered:

Negi Toro

Eel Roll

Spicy Tuna Roll

Spanish Mackeral

If you are ever in town and are looking for a great sushi restaurant, look no further.

Good Food, Good Wine, Good Friends

These three things are the building blocks of my life. Over the years we experience many meals, countless bottles of wine (some more than others), and various friends come and go.  On occasion we are lucky enough to encounter a meal that will leave us speechless, a bottle of wine that makes us close our eyes in delight, and friends that last a lifetime.  With that said, I kick off this blog in honor of all the things that make life worth living and the treasured memories they produce.

Come celebrate ‘La Dolce Vita’ with me.
