Restaurants & Bars 6

(415) at the JCC

We tried to drop by (415) Saturday night at 9:30 and it was packed, not even standing room at the sushi bar. But no problem getting an opentable res for Sunday night. It was cold and rainy so we weren't really in a sushi mood, which was good because they don't use real shellfish (due to location in JCC) so many of our favorites were missing (is eel shellfish? no unagi). However, we ate copiously from the rather strange but mainly delicious offerings. Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Thai -- I am probably forgetting a few of the cuisines represented. The scallion bread with "strange flavor" eggplant sauce was delicious, almost a meal in itself. The "tapas" of golden pineapple was ok and the shaking beef (I think this is what it was called, their website isn't live yet) was delicious. Vietnamese spring rolls were pedestrian. The best dish here or almost anywhere, it was flatout delicious and unusual was the hacked ginger chicken. The black cod was almost as good as that, just wonderful. We ordered way too much food and finished almost all of it.
