Having travelled for 6 weeks across this country from San Francisco to Chicago and back on Route 66 to LA , this was the best dinner we ate. Thank you! This is what I thought the US would offer.

Try seafood tajine! It went perfectly well with sake. And better to get reservation because this place is busy all the time.
