Tell It Tuesdays: Pearl Dragon | Pacific Palisades

Restaurant: Pearl Dragon
Location: 15229 W. Sunset Blvd.
                    Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
                    (310) 459-9790

Drink Damage:  Cosmopolitan $10
Interior Swag: A giant Budda surrounded by bamboo shoots greets customers at the door. The lighting is low and the seating area is snug, making the environment intimate and warm. Unfortunately the bar only seats five people, and there isn't much standing room for bar overflow.
Service: Even though we sat at the sushi bar, a waitress took our order. The sushi chef delivered our food and was equally attentive and friendly.
Food & Drink: The cosmo I ordered was not a cosmo. Definitely had grapefruit juice in it. It was sent back to the bar after two sips and I switched to chardonnay. For dinner we ordered a variety of sushi rolls and a salmon plate. It was all delicious! A highlight of the meal was when a cricket jumped onto my plate. I was able to capture him and bring him outside. If it had been a cockroach I may have reacted differently. This bug didn't seem to bother us. 
Go-Back-Again-Ness: I like this spot despite the drink snafu and large insect. We will go again.
