We went for the special promotion lunch at Megu during Restaurant week and were blown away. The restaurant itself is a delight to look at, with one of the most dramatic dining rooms in the city. And the food is outstanding too. The miso soup was the best we’ve ever had, filled with interesting textures (including an herb swaddled in a Japanese starch—junsei?). I had the sushi while my partner opted for the kobe beef hamburger. The latter was small but very satisfying; the sushi was primo and quite the generous serving. The dessert was a cake made of crepe layers interspersed with a green tea flavored cream. One of us liked it, one didn’t, but it sure was inventive.
Overall, we came away feeling like we had had a great treat, and that we’d go back, either to another promotion lunch, or another time when we’re feeling like celebrating and have some money to burn. Incidentally we had no trouble making reservations using OpenTable.com.
