Japanese Food in Paris?

Simon | Jun 30, 2010 03:06 PM

hi...NY/Asia-based Hound, who has recently moved to Paris...

So far, the Japanese options seem a bit grim...

Following a thread here, i went over to Rue St. Anne and tried two places...Kadoya was awful food (and despite the previous thread which lists it as Japanese-run, it is 100% Chinese-staffed: cooks, servers, etc, all gabbing it up in Mandarin --- i chatted w/ the staff: all from various parts of Mainland China)...i tried a second place (forgot the name) which was even worse...also vile food (i had two bites and asked for the check) and not Japanese-staffed...

Haven't tried any of the places on Rue Monsieur Le Prince, but they appear to mostly all Chinese run and the food i saw people eating looks sub-supermarket quality...

Went to Youlin, which is a fun place, but is French/Japanese fusion, and while the omakase was yummy, i was famished afterward as the portions are very small...

OK...where to get decent traditional sushi?: requirements: All-Japanese chefs/staff, fresh fish...is there an authentic izakaya anywhere?...open to all neighborhoods and all price ranges and all varieties of Japanese cuisine...arigato gozaimashita in advance...
