Nesai, this is the joint that some of you were discussing earlier.

I think it was in the forgotten restaurants thread.

      oh, yeah, that is a former hound.

      i think it's either exile kiss or elmo monster.

      have you tried Nesai ?????

        That's it, Elmo Monster. No, never been. Not even on my radar.

          You mean, chow-dar.

          Where's our main main, Sevrog, when we need him to supply the puns.

    2. Hi, Kevin

      I don't know what others were saying earlier, but Nesai in Newport Beach on Riverside Drive is owned and operated by Michiko Soffer, the widow of the legendary Sid Soffer of Sid's Blue Beet in Newport Beach.

      Her first restaurant in Newport was Issay and we were regular customers. She used to take me to wine tastings with her.
