Or better said, how does Maruya stand up to some of the great sushi spots in Tokyo?
After a show at ODC my girlfriend and I walked over to Bar Bambino only to discover its out of business (moved?) and Maruya sushi has taken its place.
The quality of the fish was superb as was the Uni, although the rice seemed a little too sweet. The presentation and service were heads above. I cannot remember the last time I was at sushi place, nay any restaurant, and did not have to catch the waiters attention at least once.
Maruya is the best sushi experience we've had in San Francisco.
