We went to Nishi last night for dinner. Maybe it was because I wasn't feeling so well that I craved something hot and homey. I was going to order their seafood nabe but then I remembered their chawanmushi. It's a steamed egg custard with dashi, chicken, shiitake & enoki mushroom, kamaboko and mitsuba. It definitely hit the spot. I bypassed the seafood nabe and went for the bento box. Nothing special but good quality salmon teriyaki, salad, salmon, tuna, mackerel sashimi, tatsuta age, and miso soup. My wife and I both commented on how good the miso soup was. You can actually taste the soy bean. She had the sashimi platter which left enough room for some green tea ice cream.
On our way out the waitress thanked us for coming and mentioned how dinner crowd has been sparse. I sure hope Nishi survives this economy. I don't want to lose a quality Japanese restaurant in Westchester.
