Random news....

I always wanted to try the tofu kaiseki restaurant Umenohana in Beverly Hills, but never got around to it. Only about six months after it opened, it's already closing at the end of August -- apparently too much tofu, too formal, perhaps just too Japanese for the West side crowd.

On a far less exalted note, the Briazz pre-packaged sandwich and salad place on Wilshire near LACMA is now O to Go, which has sort of a take-out orgasm connotation. Apparently they've switched to all-organic, which is a nice idea. Unfortunately, the wild salmon caesar I tried there yesterday was virtually tasteless. They could at least borrow the garlicky caesar dressing from the otherwise undistinguished Johnnie's Italian next door. They better still have the chicken chili, my default healthy lunch, or they're in serious trouble.

Next up on my lunch list to try: Pistachio Grill in Beverly Hills; sandwiches at Boule and M Cafe de Chaya, which co-worker Joe Adalian says is both tasty and healthy.

It was really good too.
Oh well.

(And not to be too crass, but even better than the food was the amazing bathroom. Seriously, amazing.)

The sandwich I had at Boule was excellent! Enjoy :-)

The Briazz in the first floor of the downtown Gas Co. Bldg. is "O To Go" now, too. (always thought it was a silly location, since they're competing with the Gas Co. cafeteria).

The previous four comments look like "blog-spam" to me!

I miss the soups at Briazz and I notice that most of the help is gone, too. So I walked up to LaBrea Bakery (and the walk made me feel virtuous) and got a chopped salad.

O-to-Go bought out all the Briazz locations--so they're changing them one by one.

You must go to M Cafe--I'm obsessed with everything on the menu - I haven't had a dud yet.
