I normally haunt the Southwest section of Chowhounds.com but find myself heading to Irvine in a few weeks to take care of some personal business.
I am looking for some great Japanese food and would appreciate any and all recommendations. I am not picky about the location and can travel just about anywhere in OC. By preference, I would like something more authentic than trendy. Sushi is fine, but I want someplace with a bit more substance than that.
Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
