I have a great ten year old in my life that is more adventurous and curious about food than most adults. He has eaten rolls and nigiri salmon, yellow tail, ebi and tuna with me. He is patient, beautifully mannered, well-traveled, just a cool, handsome kid.
I've told him when school lets out he and I would go for proper sushi. I am thinking a weeknight first dinner seating at the bar of 15 East. I know he'd enjoy seeing the picture of the cross section of the tuna, and having Masa explain the cuts. And I know he'd try anything. (I don't care if they charge full adult price; it's fair, as he will be occupying a seat at the bar. And this kid can eat.)
Is 15 East a good choice for this? Is there another (high-end) interactive chef who would be appropriate for this? In no way, am I expecting to disrupt service, btw. No more than an inquisitive adult guest at the bar would.
