Gen Sushi: semi-secret menu!!!

Silverlake Bodhisattva | Apr 6, 200611:40 AM

Went to Gen for dinner last night, four people, table, with reservations. I'd been there a week before, also for dinner, also at a table (2). This time, rather than JUST the short menu, (which mirrors the lunch menu) the drink menu, and the "sushi sheet", waitress brought us an APPETIZER menu!
This (single page/back-front) was broken down by cooking method, and included miso-marinated black cod in the "grill" section. Which was spectacular. The really INTERESTING stuff was on this menu! I'd never seen it before!

Did my extremely imperfect attempts at asking for things by Japanese name remove some of the "gaijin" stigma which I carry on my very Caucasian forehead 6'4" above the floor?
