went to morimoto on friday night....

had the $80 omakase, but since he screwed up and gave us shrimp- which one of us is allergic to-- he felt bad and sent us a couple of extra courses...to answer someone else's question- no, sake is not included nor is bottled water

we sat at the sushi bar and were served by morimoto himself....nice guy...

everything was excellent..although the omakase menus consist of a number of floating set pieces that they shift around...

excellent sashimi- had 3 differernt dishes with sashimi in them...
a great piece of angus steak, btw...
good clear soup- somebody does the dashi right...
i didnt love the black cod, but i never love black cod...still it was pretty decent..

i am a great fan of fresh yuzu..morimoto seems as fond of it as i am- and also had 2 other exotic japanese citrus fruits...

the highlight may have been the sushi, which i normally wouldnt say since i generally prefer sahimi.

but- these 5 pieces had top quality fish and on several, a highly original twist which didnt sacrifice the original aesthetic....

the wait staff: fawning and mildly annoying. also not very knowledgable. told me i had red snapper on my plate- when it looked like fluke...asked morimoto he laughed said it was fluke..

overall..id be happy to go back...
somewhat cheaper than
Nobu in NY,
