Introduction to Japanese

Tommy D. | Aug 18, 2011 10:12 AM

I've been meaning to learn about Japanese cuisine which I haven't tried except for a few random Benihana-type places upstate. What would be your top five recommendations? My budget is moderate, about $50 to $70 per person before drinks but including tax and tip. I'm considering:

- Ushiwakamaru (sushi)
- Ippudo (ramen)
- Cocoron (soba)
- Kajitsu (shojin)
- Sakagura (izakaya)

Perhaps Blue Ribbon Sushi? I like the broad menu but can't tell whether it's considered authentic. I think kaiseki is out of my price range, Thanks very much.
