OMG! i have never had a meal as varied and delicious as the one i had last Thursday.
sat with Hiro at the small back sushi bar and just let him do the choosing. there was at least 7-10 courses and i can't really remember them all (had the Crazy Sake) but the standouts were:
live scallop with foie gras. simply the most best scallop dish i have ever had. so rich, so smooth. both the foie and the scallop were lightly torched and sauced.
toro and hamachi sashimi were simple and amazing fresh and buttery.
live spiny lobster served three ways. first; sashimi style with (i think) poke rice. amazing crunch and a very bright flavor. second; sauced and torched. the tail meat cooked spot on and sauced with the tomali. the roe sacks were preserved and also very lightly cooked, wow. third; lobster miso soup. the shells once taken back to the kitchen were simmered with a miso short stock. rich, miso-y. perfect.
between these there was a bunch of other stuff, nigiri, sashimi and hand rolls. all fantasticly fresh and inventive.
dining by myself this took about two hours and all along Hiro and i 'talked story' about Dice-K, new Sushi restaurants and meals to come.
