THanks to those who responded to my "cry for help" for a J-restaurant to take my visiting J-friend.
(Aside:TO those who suggest I take her to a C-restaurant- she has been here for 12 days, doesn't really like NA/European food, and sushi in Tokyo can be quite expensive hence her request for sushi)
Your suggestions were great HOWEVER......most of the places are closed on Saturday....even my "low $" fave Sushiman.
THe only place I can find that is open on Saturday for lunch is near St Lawrence market called Isakaya (spelling might be wrong) but then I read a review that said that "if you were more than 2 peeps you would be stuck at the bar or a communal table"
Has anyone been? Any thoughts?
