Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Miso Happy!

Good Morning, Darlings!

A week or so ago, Miss Tami and I had a girls’ lunch at Miso Izakaya just to catch up. Pretty yummy, I must say.

Even though the rain was coming down in buckets outside, inside we were feeling sunny and warm. The sushi here is so beautiful. Take a look.

Don't You Just Love All That Color?

This sweet little outpost on Edgewood is finally garnering some much deserved attention. The space is sparse, but impeccable, with a couple of cool light fixtures that look like branches. The service, expedient but non-intrusive. The price tag seemed to be mid-range for a nice lunch. We both got out of there for $30 each. That includes a glass of wine and dessert, so that seems fair.

I got two rolls and Tami got a roll and a handroll. The only snafu was that they only serve their famous buns at dinner, so that was a bummer. But we can always return! The fish was fresh and the rolls were super tasty.

Dessert was another dimension. Morelli’s Ice Cream. Salted caramel for me and roasted banana for Tami. Here’s a photo, but there is no way you can tell how awesome this stuff is. Go visit them on Moreland…or you can get it at Miso, too! I visited their tiny place the other day (when the temps rose to 70F!) and tried everything. And they encourage this behavior. But I digress. Here’s that photo I promised:

That’s all the news that’s fit to print today. I hope you have a tremendous Tuesday!!

    I’ve been dying to try this place! Finally made it there for lunch on Monday but they were closed 🙁

  2. I love the header of your blog. So classy, just like you my dear! And, I love Miso. Brian and I eat there about once a week. When can you and I go out for lunch? I miss me some Patti!

    I love that place — especially their interesting Japanese small plates (which I think is what Izakayas are all about) — unusual and delicious.
