Love Kona's Sushi Only when Koji, The Japanese Sushi Master is there. I know, I know, I am biased. I have followed Koji from NY where he had his own restaurant and following to this place. Koji Makes the Best Sushi and other dishes. He needs to be with others of his caliber. Koji has been in movies with Drew Barrymore, Robert De Niro, and Kate Beckinsale. He has served sushi for Al Roker, The Rockefellers in NY, and worked with Morimoto from Iron Chef USA. I do not feel Kona knows the jewel they have in their Sushi Master, Koji. IF Kona would allow Koji some creativity here then this place would be smoking hot and not just mediocre! I think Kona should also put Sushi somewhere in the name too like: Kona Grill and Sushi Bar or something so when you drive by looking for something to eat while in City Place SUSHI would pop out at you and you would not be left guessing what Kona Grill is. Koji rocks Kona Grill! It's a shame they don't know how good he is!
Recently I had the opportunity to visit Havana restaurant in West Palm Beach. I've heard so much about this restaurant that I decided to give it a shot. At first I was thrown off by the outside appearance but then when I was informed where the dine-in area was locate, I was taken away. The 2 level decor inside, was very warm and had an old Cuban feel to it. I was greeted by a very friendly hostess that promptly seated me and my party. Perfect for a romantic dinner, or even a business gathering. They can even provide a V.I.P. room big enough to accommodate a party of 16. They have a wonderful variety of different dishes anywhere from chicken, to meats, to selected seafood. They also have great quick items when you are on the go, the sandwiches offered are delicious and very filling! They also offer very traditional Cuban desserts that are sure to please! I recommend Havana to all, you WON���T be disappointed! I wasn���t!
I am 45 years old this February...I grew up in WPB. One of the fondest memories of my childhood was going to Russo's. The "Russo" is simple, but, I can still remember how the flavor of the sweet bread combined with fresh deli salami and ham, the romaine lettuce and the olive oil just seemed to be the perfect combination of flavors. I am so happy to see Russo's is still going strong. I don't remember her name, but the sweet african american lady that worked there for so many years, always had a smile for me, and I even remember the owner....working so hard to feed the long lines waiting for his special subs. I hope things haven't changed too much over the years...I live a few hours away now, but the memory of this place and the people who made it special will always have a special place in my childhood memories.
