Latitude 43...someone had to do it

capeanne | Jun 2, 2008 07:21 PM

So we went last week, post lunch and pre dinner..I liked the space as it is interesting and the patio deck will be great on a good day for a drink ( only) , Greeted promptly and seated by a window. Menu is overwhelming and I am always suspicious of Cheesecake Factory approaches to dining..how can u do so many things and do them all ( or most ) well. We decided since we were at the sea to stick with sushi. Server was prompt and friendly enough but not too friendly in a good sort of way. We ordered the spicy tuna roll and 5 variations of nigiri. We also ordered ( for 3 bucks more) hand shredded wasabi. Well the tuna roll was falling apart and not at all spicy or flavorful. The other nigiri was blah at best ( confession we were at O YA that week so we were in no position to have sushi on a comparison basis for another month at least) but it wasn't the glistening, bracey ,fresh fish I expected. Not bad ..just not good or memorable or "we'll be back" grade. And quite frankly the 3 buck wasabi looked and tasted old and my head would have been cleared more with a losenge. But if you must go 2 warnings: 1) the chopsticks are metal and very difficult to maneuver in fact one pair were bent 2) if you order Sake you MUST ask for a shot glass...the " cups" are square wooden boxes with a lip at least 3/8 inch thick . WAY too much work to figure out where box ends and lips begin. It wasn't cheap and we won't rush back . However the fried oyster salad seems to be very popular as it was served often and looked great each time it passed us...not a destination and I fear I would do Lobster Pool or Halibut Point for mid afternoon meals first.
