To the person who did a hit and run on our mailbox this morning (driving a semi-truck according to my husband):
Well, I have a lot meaner things running through my mind, but suffice to say… Not cool, dude. Not cool.
We had the omakase for dinner, as well as the beverage omakase. So many courses, soooo yummy. The descriptions are sometimes vague, as I had a hard time both hearing and remembering everything they said. The Kobe shortrib might be the best, but it’s hard to choose.
Blue fin belly tartar fresh and crunchy chives sturgeon caviar
Kummomoto oysters Japanese salsa, lime ceviche, jalapeño slice

Raspberry lemon soda
Spicy lobster creme fraiche
Kobe short rib, wasabi greens, vegetables, red wine reduction
Sushi: Tuna, amberjack, Bonita tuna, red snapper, clam
Sauvignon blanc dessert wine (I think. Not sure what she said.)
Ginger peach cheesecake
The pictures at the end are the inside of the restaurant: a rather phallic-looking table light, divider walls that changed from lime to pink/purple, and organic-styled ceilings and walls.
In the mood for somewhere new to eat, I searched this place up on Yelp. It’s new in town, not that we actually eat in town normally.
The appetizer was a Mediterranean Mezza Plate, a sampler of several of the appetizers, including baba ghannouj, falafel, and spinach pie.
Dinner was seared sea bream with a nicely acidic sauce of tomatoes, cilantro, white wine, and garlic. Very enjoyable, especially the sauce and the asparagus. Ed had tangerine braised short ribs with truffled risotto.
We ended with a slice of baklava, which was deliciously nutty.
Yella was a charming stop, with some well made food. I liked the hummus and baba, although I’m certainly no expert. I plan on going back to try some more of their dishes.
