Gotta hand it to MenuPages. Their coverage of local restaurants has really expanded over the past few years, and a recent perusal made me realize that my wife and I had fallen into the routine of ordering deliveries from the same old places, over and over again. Nothing really wrong with that (or those same old places), but we had been excluding a lot of places just because we didn't know they were there.
I was impressed to find that MenuPages now lists some 24 Japanese restaurants (depending on how you search and what filters you use) in the Park Slope/Prospect Heights area. Many are places I'd never heard of before (Ten, Naruto Ramen, Koto Sushi, etc.) (Yes, yes, I know. We have to push that rock aside once in a while and get the hell out of the cave...)
We decided to throw caution to the winds and order delivery from some of these places, and so far our experiences have been quite positive, with the occasional misfire. All in all, we like what we've ordered, so we'll continue to experiment, at least with delivery.
But that got me to wondering what other Chowhounders think about the various Japanese restaurants in Park Slope. I did a quick search on this and was surprised that there weren't many hits. The few hits I did get were a year and more old.
No need to be reticent. Share your thoughts on the state of Japanese restaurants in Park Slope.
