KATSUYA – 1st Chapter to the “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”


Katsuya has been a long-standing favorite of the Celeb crowd, always drawing paparazzi whether its outside their Brentwood or Hollywood location. Part of the SBE franchise, Katsuya has made it over the two-year hump for usual Hollywood restaurant  turnover and has been around for the last 5 years… there are many reasons why.

Katsuya is officially going to kick off my own “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” series. Although this restaurant boosts tonnes of great dishes, we are going to talk about the show stopper…….”Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice.”Anyone that has been to Katsyua knows that this dish is a signature one, it’s a staple, a “you have to order”.  Spicy raw tuna (but not too spicy) set a top of a deep-fried, crunchy, jasmine rice square,  it practically melts in your mouth. Pair it with their signature Watermelon Mojito and you will be back… it’s a promise. If you are looking for ambience, great food, inventive cocktails, and a good crowd, make your next meal here.

Regardless of what it is – (Oversized sweats, old t-shirts, baseball hats, plaid shirts..) I  always have had a tendency  of stealing clothing items from all the men in my life. Weather it has been my boyfriend’s sweats or my brother’s t-shirt I have always felt there is something sexy about when a woman wears men’s clothing. It is completely unobvious and fairly androgynous, but still it turns out to be highly flirtatious.

Last week caught me on the street sporting a more casual look with a tailored men’s shirt. It inspired me to write this post, currently it is my favorite look.  Dressed down or up – pair is with heels or sandals, it can be a day or evening look. My current evening look for this piece is with heels, shorts, and a statement necklace. If you wanted to dress it down – cutoffs, wedges, and a slightly wrinkled shirt does the job. Here are some celebrities take on the look…
