Murasaki Experience

Luke HJ | May 18, 2004 12:49 PM

On Sunday, in the event of celebrating my brother's birthday, me, my fiance and my brother went to Murasaki on Clement street for dinner. In light of recommendations from fellow chowhounders, we let the chef decide on the meals. It happens to be one of the best japanese meal experiences I ever had, the experience is comparable to having the testing menu at Morimoto's in PA last year. Although my fiance insists that Murasaki is more satisfying.

This is what was served in order:
Fresh Oysters
Seared Monk Fish Liver in Ponzu sauce
Thinly slivered raw halibut
Crab Salad
Agedashi Tofu
Grilled Yellowtail Collars
Something Mushi (a soup in a teapot, with seafood)
Toro Sushi (cheek part, melt in your mouth good)
Yellowtail Sushi
Fresh Abalone Sushi (not too crazy about this one)
Spicy Hamachi Roll
Fresh Salmon Sushi
Unagi Sushi

The unagi was supposed to be the last dish served, but we were enjoying ourselves so much that we ordered more. So we got

Amaebi Sushi
Toro Sushi (Belly part, good but not as good as the cheeks)
Razor Clam Sushi

Since it was my brother's birthday, they gave us green tea mousse on the house. The mousse were extremely well done.

Overall, the bill came up to $180 before tips and we are very satisfied. We would highly recommend this place to everyone.
