The Daily Shortlist March 12
Since hearing Mia Doi Todd’s album “Manzanita,” I must say, her lush voice and delicate guitar strumming have had me hooked since. So pairing her with Jose Gonzalez is almost a no-brainer for deciding whether or not to go see this show. With all the new restaurants moving in on Dekalb Street of late, Sushi D stands tall offering a relaxed atmosphere, friendly waitstaff, and sushi rolls like the ‘D’ Roll with eel, tempura flakes, masago, and avocado. My favorite bar on Dekalb Street, Moe’s is an eclectic bar where you can chill out and watch the locals stroll around on their way to any of the great restaurants in this upcoming hood. Though small, Café Lafayette is a quaint looking café with French influenced cuisine that serves crepes, burgers, and entrees like Sauteed Rack of Lamb with tabbouleh and mint puree ($15.95).
