Since my trip to Japan last year, I've been looking for a good Japanese restaurant on my home turf. I found what I was looking for at Ran in Forest Hills. They do kansei (Kyoto) style cuisine. Their sushi has been impeccable. (IMHO much better than Mickey's). We were in on saturday for lunch, and had their bento. The fish component was lightly seared tuna in ponzu sauce that blew us away. The futo maki was the best I've ever eaten.
I'm worried about this place. I really love it. It's close to where I live, the Forest Hills food wasteland. It doesn't seem to be catching on. I don't want to lose it. Please, hounds, give them a shot.
