A while back Ranee took me, Eric, Andrew and Rob to a secret spot for lunch. Oasis Cafe is a Mediterranean restaurant hidden in the back of a jewelry store in the heart of Jewelers Row! I mean, literally you walk into the jewelry store and pass cases and cases of diamonds and other gems and then you’re standing in front of a counter and placing a lunch order!! The food was really good and we sat outside in a plaza nearby our office and ate. What a great lunch!
