expectations

Last night, Christmas eve, I was solo so headed out to my favorite sushi bar, Koo, for an evening of sublime fish and welcoming service.  My usual seat at the bar was waiting for me, as was Suzuki-san, my favorite chef there.  Spoonful of Happiness, and a multitude of screamingly fresh fish,  along with a few glasses of Otokoyama, was all it took to make my night a merry one.

A couple of friends of mine are on their way to New York today for the holidays.  Knowing my penchant for fine food in the Big Apple, they made reservations at my recommended three Hall of Fame  eateries there – Jean Georges, Le Bernadin, and Blue Hill.  All three I have extolled on numerous occasions, my love for the chefs there and I am a bit afraid that I have set their expectations up so high, there is no where to go but down.  But, today being Christmas, expectations are bound to be high, all over the world, not just New York.  And not just on food.  I can only hope to not disappoint too terribly.
