Sex Sells and So Does Britney

Better yet listen all week, it’s a great show with lots of fun, surprises and moving moments–from Twisted  Tivo to Miracle Mondays…it’s got it all.

Friday, April 25 Patti Pietschmann, the Dining Diva, dished with Rick Dees in the Morning on the new Movin 93.9 FM about Luckyfish, a  hip, new spot in Beverly Hills serving some the best sushi and Japanese food in the town at affordable prices offering what they call the kaiten-zushi concept in Japanese dining. Color coded plates go from chef to table via a conveyor belt that winds through the luncheonette-style restaurant. The menu: from shushi rolls, sashimi and nigir priced from $3.50 to $10–there’s also soups (try the Miso) salads (tofu and seaweed and spiky chicken are my favorites) , Chilean seabass teriyaki and other  choices such as:   Crunchy Panko Breaded Shrimp with Tonkatsu Sauce ($6); Yakisoba with Shrimp or Vegetables ($4.50-$6.50); Japanese Shishito Peppers ($6.50); and Chicken Kara Age ($4.50).  Desserts include Mochi Ice Cream ($4.50); Vanilla Crème Brûlée ($3.50); a fabulous light cheesecake,  and a selection of Fresh Fruit ($4.50). You can also eat outside on the patio or take out.

Located at: 338 N. Canon Drive, just steps away from Wolfgang Puck’s Spago, but world’s apart in the pricing. www.luckyfishsushi.com

And if you missed it, on Friday April 18, the Dining Diva had fun with Rick Dees in the Morning on  Movin 93.9 talking about an outside the box, fun, fast food restaurant called, get this, “Oinkster”.   It’s the brainchild of super Valley chef, Andre Guerrero (who runs the popular Max in Sherman Oaks, California) who says he came up with the name during a late night rap session. “My girlfriend Jan who’s also my pastry chef threw it out and we all loved it,” he confessed. Everything on the menu is freshly made, even the ketchup and whipped cream. Open for lunch and dinner Oinkster’s menu includes sandwiches like house cured pastrami ($7.50), 1/3 pound hamburger made from fresh Nebraska Angus beef ($4.25), BBQ pulled pork ($6.50) and assorted Rotisserie chicken plates, salads, Belgian fries, and great shakes and malts made with Fosselman’s ice cream. Really yummy stuff. Oinkster 2005 Colorado Blvd., Eagle Rock, California, www.oinkster.comThe Dining Diva also mentioned her awesome steak dinner at the Palm in West Hollywood—where even in this era of a steakhouse on every corner, the Palm rules. My  New York Strip was prepared to my perfection—Pittsburgh style, charred on the outside, lightly pink inside, my husband Richard’s , man sized 28 ounce Porterhouse was outstanding—and he ate the whole thing.  Our carrot cake and rich chocolate cake desserts were sinfully deeslicious. The Palm, Santa Monica Blvd., WeHo, www.thepalm.com – YOU REALLY HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE PROGRAM FRIDAY MORNINGS ON MOVIN 93.9 FM AND BE SURE TO SET YOUR FM DIAL TO  93.9 FM Mornings  from 5 AM TO 10 AM to listen to Dees as he jump starts Los Angeles with his witty skits like Candid Phone, Dees Sleaze, My Mom is Smarter than your Mom — celebrity chats, Show Biz Buzz by Patti Longlegs Lopez, Mark Wong’s slant on the news..and well, you really have to be there.

Sexy sandals, shiny hair, it’s all good

The Golden Door opens up new worlds with mini-vacations

Your Dining Diva just spent a week of divine penance at the Golden Door in Escondido, California where I was pampered, pummeled and whittled down to size in salubrious bliss. The Japanese-style resort is simply the crème-de-la-crème of its genre—where a handpicked staff of fitness instructors, therapists, nutritionists etc are on hand to cater to the every need of each of its 40 weekly guests.  The elite facility, with a price tag to match of nearly $8,000 for the Sunday to Sunday program, attracts, as you might expect, a well heeled clientele who can easily afford the tab.  If the price is too steep for your budget you may want to consider booking a mini-three or four day break. Offered for the first time ever, The Door’s three and four day programs include a private trainer, fitness program, deluxe Asian style room, all gourmet spa meals plus snacks, three in room massages, make up lesson, manicure or pedicure, herbal wrap, cooking class and transportation from San Diego airport. Everybody simply must experiene the Door at least once in their life-warning –it can be addicting—I go once or twice a year and my body thanks me for it, so does my husband. The Door is open for women only with the exception of four men’s weeks and four coed weeks a year. The all-inclusive mini spa breaks cost $3,625 for three days and $4,725 for four. Check it out at www.goldendoor.com or call 800-424-0777, tell them Patti Pietschmann sent you.
