Japon Bistro, Pasadena- change in chef, don't bother.

tokyostrogirl | Oct 4, 200408:01 PM

After touting the charms of Japon Bistro on this board for a while now, I must tell you this: Don't Go! The chef who created the menu and executed creative yet comforting, unique yet familiar and overall outstanding food (sushi and hot items) has moved on.....back to his old stomping grounds of Z Sushi in Alhambra. Details are fuzzy but it seems management had no experience in the biz and the two parties parted. Anyway, glad to hear that Ito-san (aka Toshi) is back at Z since it is closer to my house anyway. He says he is working on getting Z back to a certain level (apparently it had dropped off in the past few months) and I, for one, am looking forward to consuming large quanities of his creations. Hoping the previously discussed hapen cheese, his extra crispy/juicy unagi, and perfectly seasoned saba will all make apperances at Z.

Address: 1132 N Garfield Ave, Alhambra, CA 91801
