I went to School In New Lebanon and am retuning for my 20th reunion. I am lamenting the loss of Shuji's. Now that I am grown up and really like all types of Japanese food I could've finally appreciated it for what it was. The one time I went there in high school, all I ate was Tempura.
That said, I don't think I will be looking for japanese in the area, but my wife and I were looking for Breakfast on a Saturday and a Monday, Dinner Sunday night, plus something late night for Friday after I pick my wife up at Albany Airport Friday night @ 10 pm. Take out to meet her would be fine.
Also my motto is "to have something I cannot readily find in the vast expanse of LA"
