Kiji report (Guerrero and 22nd)

Pavement2112 | Dec 29, 200510:58 AM     1

Came back from Connecticut and needed some sushi - stopped by the new Kiji.

The sushi seemed better than most around, definitely a higher quality of sushi. They had some good shiitake mushrooms stuffed with hamachi and grilled as well. Solid agedashi-tofu.

Overall, the service was spotty with the server not knowing which sushi was what. Also, they serve sake in martini glasses - seemed kind of weird.

We had one Japanese person there who said that US sushi rice is almost always under-flavored. The sushi rice in Japan had a stronger taste, maybe people in the US might not like it.

Still, the quality of the food was pretty high. Dinner for two with drinks was over $80, so it would be nice to see the service match the price.
