This Actually Happened – January 28th, 2011

The World’s Greatest Sushi Bar

Last Friday, we walked down Lankershim Blvd in North Hollywood, a stone’s throw from our new apartment, and we passed by what appeared to be a night club. The line was unbelievably long, and the VIP line was also packed. “This must be the hottest spot in town,” we thought. We made a mental note to visit the place in the future; Tokyo Delves sushi bar seemed to call to us. The following evening, we decided to walk by and see if the Saturday crowd mirrored the previous night’s. To our surprise, the line was empty. We approached the bouncer and inquired about the place. He informed us that the restaurant only does three shows a night. It was a little after nine, and there was one empty table left. We also learned the eight o’clock show ended at ten thirty; the restaurant is cleared for the next show. I didn’t want to be limited, but @EFidalgo12 convinced me to give the place a try. We walked in and our waitress, Laura, was welcoming. The entire staff continued to push us towards taking saki bombs, but we finished off a bottle of Jack prior to entering the place. (My apologies to johnnie Walker!) Long story short, we did four saki bombs and the night was amazing. The wait staff is comprised of actors and actresses who perform different singing and dancing acts, throughout the night. (I can’t decide if the NSYNC show or the Beauty and the Beast act was my favorite!) We managed to get on the VIP list for the last show and returned. Great Food, Great Staff, and the time of your life! Everyone is drunk, including the staff, who are encouraged to drink, plus, all of the customers get up and dance. (Many get on their chairs!) I never thought I would find a sushi place that I liked more than Fuji in Quincy, Ma, but Tokyo Delves is the world’s Greatest Sushi Bar! BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

I love the New York Giants! (I don’t want to go to church!)

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.
