Elie, love the name. Love the picture.
Love NAHA. This was my first trip to NAHA and I couldn't have been more satisfied. I walked in with two colleagues and was seated by the window along Clark Street- just beautiful. The space is open and refreshing, but not bare. And the pop music added a kind of informality to what is a very formal dining experience.Because it was cold and rainy (actually, my only pseudo-complaint is that the heat needed to be turned up a bit), I started with the soup of the day- a potato soup. The presentation was beautiful! Cool, fresh tuna in the center of the bowl, the warm soup poured around it table-side.For lunch the halibut with sweet potatoes and other seasonal flavors. It was perfect. The halibut was light and moist, and there was a warm sauce poured on top, which again, was fitting for a rainy October day. I left nothing. Dessert- the almond clafoutis. We all oo'd and ah'd when the desserts came. From the foam creme anglaise to the spaghetti thin sugar sticks, it was gorgeous. I must admit I was a bit confused when I first bit into the clafoutis- I was most excited about the almond, and didn't taste much of it. I couldn't complain though- the fresh, farm blueberries were a treat, and they made up for anything I, at first, was missing.In all, a wonderful experience and I completely understand what all the hype has been about. I can't wait to go back- for dinner.
