The dashing and accomplished Mr. Wood and I are giving each other the gift of ignoring the Valentine's Day flowers and candy and tables-for-two. This year, instead, Team Wood is marshaling a group for a relaxed sushi outing the day before Valentine's.
There's a lot of sushi in town, but a recent email caught our hearts. Hanabi Sushi in Brentwood is weathering rough economic times, what with the economic downturn and the terrible winter weather. The place has gotten sterling reviews on yelp and urbanspoon.com for its handsome decor, cleanliness, friendly service and outstanding sushi.
Occasional Bites commenter chris w is going along, and who knows who else. We're absolutely going to stuff ourselves with sushi, slurp noodles and probe the menu's nooks and crannies for the various goodies we read about in yelps and spoons.
Want to come hoist a chopstick for anti-Valentine's Day? Come on, with or without date, as a group date, or with the kids.
Hanabi is at 214 Ward Circle in Maryland Farms. Kampai, baby! We'll have the sake cooling.
