Valentine’s Weekend Restaurant Tour

New landscape Moleskine journal. Rule is I can only draw in it on the fly. No taking pictures and drawing later. I’m forced to draw fast and not careĀ  about making it perfect. Todd at Thai Hut February 15 2014.



The sushi chefs at Hana, 7th Ave and Missouri, our favorite new sushi place. It’s BYOB which is great because you get a lot of really good sushi but your bill isn’t insane because you had a couple glasses of wine. Because you bought your bottle at the cute French pastry and wine shop across the street! No cork fee. SUSHI! The people are really friendly and BUSY. Cuz they know what they are DOING. Very popular neighborhood place.



Breakfast Monday morning at Melrose Kitchen before work. I know, right? Phoenix doesn’t have a Melrose. But it does: one big one and lots of little ones. Melrose This, Melrose That. There’s one of those artsy arch things that goes over the road, a metal laser-cutout paneled thing that says Melrose, so we know where we are. This is Melrose. This is Melrose Kitchen, 7th Avenue north of Indian School, a place what serves some damn fine vittles in the am.
