Dude, that's so moist!

    Who the hell doesn't like Rudy's?

    That, Forrest Gump, is all I got to say about that.

    Except I could also add that  the sauce is peppery perfection.

    And the meat is always moist and tender.

    Oh, and the service is fast, almost too fast.

    Okay, that is all I got to say about that.

    Speaking of moist, I've heard a lot of people (more than one or two, anyway) recently admit that the word "moist" makes them cringe. Why is that? Moist, moist, moist, moist, moist, moist.

    moist  -

    describing someone or something that looks bad a hot mess sounds bad or looks bad.

    1.damn, dat bitch look real moist !
    2.you sound real moist right now, stop it !
    3.Man, that chick was lookin so moist last night i had to leave

    Damn you, Urban Dictionary. Now you've gone and moisted up that word for me too.

    Once I heard that the owner Kent Rathburn (and his brother, I think) defeated Bobby Flay on Iron Chef on the "secret ingredient ISSSS PORK!" episode, I knew which entree to go with. And boy, was I happy I did. The pork tenderloin served on creamed corn is one of the best dishes I have had in a long time. Best pork tenderloin, hoofs down. I also had a chance to try a few appetizers; my favorite was the fried green tomatoes. For dessert, I had the cherry limeade pie which was de-lish-us.

    Uchi's menu is akin to soft-core porn for the foodie:

    First, he invited me to eat the "crudo--sea bass, orange oil, garlic and black pepper in a citrus vinaigrette." Then, he gently placed the "uchiviche--salmon, striped bass, vine-ripened tomatoes, yellow bell peppers, garlic and cilantro" next to my  "maguro sashimi and goat cheese with cracked pepper, fuji apple and pumpkin seed oil."

    I thought I was almost done when suddenly, he told me to try the "shag -- tempura fried bond roll with salmon and squid ink sumiso sauce."

    Alas, he had to tend to other diners so I "hot rock seared it myself --wagyu beef with ponzu sauce on a japanese river rock."

    I have the same thing each time, and it never fails to satisfy.

    Dear Yelp, I want to marry Paggi House and be Mrs. Paggi House. I love everything about this place. I swear the first time I walked up the stairs I thought I was in the wrong place, maybe someone's private party? It's the closest to a spa +  restaurant concept I've ever experienced and I have experienced a lot of spas and restaurants. I really love the cozy outdoor patio (duh) furniture and heaters and, oh,  the blood orange margarita, and well, that's all I had tonight. If you want to know more about the food at Paggi House, please refer to the dozens of other reviews here on Yelp. The End.

    I love Eddie Vedder. Yes, even the newer stuff. Hell, the soundtrack from Into the Wild is one of my favorite CDs of all time, but I digress...

    Long over the shock and disappointment that my future husband is not the owner, Eddie V's is my favorite happy hour because of the food (most of the appetizers are 1/2 off--some exceptions, of course) and the entertainment value.

    If you like your fish raw, and a little spicy, come here for the Tartare of Pacific Ahi Seasoned  Curry Oils with sliced svocado, citrus & yummy sesame crisps. OMG! I can taste it now...

    I've been to this location at least a dozen times and I always prefer the bar area to the restaurant. Mainly for the aforementioned "entertainment value." Take last night (please, my head still hurts)--Jerry S. and I are sitting at the bar, enjoying impromptu wine tastings (I didn't even break out the Yelp card yet) and realizing the restaurant is about to close when a group of "more-important-that-you's" came in and wanted food 5 minutes before closing. The bartender was super nice to them and offered several choices of cold apps, but one of the MITY's didn't understand why he couldn't have a steak...eh, you had to be there. It seemed a lot funnier until I tried to explain it...
