Sawa Sushi gathering, this Friday!

  • b

Hi Chowhounds! A number of folks have asked to go on a Sawa Sushi visit, and (to accommodate one who's only in town this week), I'm putting together a short-notice gathering.

Those who have already e-mailed me I've notified by return email. If you'd like to join us for sushi at Sawa Sushi in Sunnyvale, CA, please send me an e-mail ASAP.

Where: Sawa Sushi, Sunnyvale, CA
When: Friday, August 31, 7:00pm until ???
Bring: Your willingness to spend $150 or more AND your food courage to eat whatever the chef puts before you.

If that sounds fun, e-maile me at and I'll provide further details.

Space is limited to SIX people (that is, Burke, myself, and the first SIX people who respond and confirm, for a total of eight).

There will be other runs to Sawa, so don't worry if this is too short notice.

Happy chowhounding!

      Alas, no--

      We had to cancel for lack of attendance. That'll teach us to try to put together an impromptu gathering on the Friday night of a holiday 3-day weekend with only four days notice! We'll try again another week.

      We did go to Sawa's again on our own, though, the Sunday before. We're mixing our pleasures--we brought him some fine cheeses to taste. He and his wife loved them! Burke and I weren't sure they even liked cheese--we gave them a Livarot and some wonderful raw-milk Camembert. He responded by uncorking for us some 35-year old Macallan scotch.

      Despite all the discussion we've had, it's pretty obvious Sawa is family. We'll never leave him so long as we're in the area.
