Dear Twin Cities Hounds -- I'm in LA and will be in the Cities this coming weekend visiting a friend who moved there two years ago. While in LA, our tradition was often good Japanese food and I'd love to relive that experience in her newly adopted home. We prefer casual (read: blue jeans considered appropriate attire), and neither of us are sushi fans. We enjoy good, traditional Japanese cuisine in a low-key environment. She lives in Fridley and anything in about a 15-mile radius will be great. Thanks for any suggestions you can give!
