Fuji in NJ

I went to Fuji last night in NJ. My wife was upset that they didn't have liquor, but we both enjoyed the food. (we just moved down from NY so we are not yet used to the BYO culture). We started with agedashi tofu, and some tamago and hamachi....all were excellent. The tamago was nice and fluffy and not too sweet. It is nice to see a restaurant that does not load up the sushi with tons of rice. The amount of rice to fish was such that we both regretted not ordering more sushi. Instead as a main course we had the chirashi with was great. For the two of us our meal was $60 w/out a tip. Before we went I had high expectations which were met. The decor was nothing special, and the servers were dressed up in kimonos which didn't add anything to the flavor of our experience. The staff was very genuine. My only disappointment was that they did not have any squid....my favorite roll to order is "ika-shiso" (squid roll with shiso leaf).
