A Spanish Paradise…the Azu Restaurant

So, I’m not going to tell you too much about my recent date, since my good ‘ol mom reads this blog, but I will tell you all about the food.  One word – YUM!  We went for a first date to Azu which is a Spanish restaurant on Ojai Avenue.  It was completely over-the-top, out-of-this-world […]
