Real wasabi at Nishimura?

RicRios | Apr 4, 2007 06:03 PM

Today lunch at a downtown sushi bar, I asked the chef if he knew where they serve real wasabi.
He recommended Nishimura (on Melrose), he said the chef will grate real wasabi ($100+ / lb...) right there in front of you.
I searched this board, not may recent threads, very opposing views, nobody mentioned the real wasabi.

Questions for the connoisseurs:

a) do they grate real wasabi in front of you at Nishimura?

b) how good is the sushi ?

c) how good are the cooked dishes ?

Chef said to expect about $100 pp, less than Urasawa, but definitely more than a sushi place downtown.

Bonus piece of info: Chef I spoke to speaks two languages (and I'm quoting here), Tokyo and Osaka; he mentioned the fact Chef at Nishimura speaks same two languages.
