First let me say I am new to this board and loving it! Such a pleasure to find like minded foodies. Stumbled on it by accident when checking into New Orleans restaurants.
I love Japanese food, Sushi included, but having lived in California for a number of years, I fear I am quite spoiled when it comes to the traditional seating and service of Japanese food. I am not talking about grill tables, but the sit on the mats, teppanyaki style dining, with multiple courses, and attentive service. The whole Zen thing, and little Koi ponds would be nice lol
I have found excellent sushi bars, good grill table restaurants, and nice regular table restaurants, but I want atmoshere! Anyone remember the Old Tokoyo Gardens on Westheimer? If you can help me find Houston's most authentic Japanese experience that would be awesome!
