Last night, I went back to Shunji after just a one week break. This is NOT something that I can afford to do all the time (or even some of the time), but the timing worked out for me to go two weeks in a row, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity. And chrishei, being my "sidekick" (his word, not mine), accompanied me.

Since I just did a detailed review of my omakase from last week (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/904360), I'm going to crib J.L.'s style and let the photos speak for themselves (but I'll answer any questions about the dishes in comments below).
