Omakase Kaiseki

Jumi | Jul 31, 2002 02:10 PM

Is Omakase Kaiseki (sp?) two separate words meaning the same thing, slightly different meaning, or is it all one phrase? I've had omakase at Nobu, Jewel Bako, Blue Ribbon, and Bond St. Someone's taking me out and I would love to have omakase. I would like to go somewhere similar to Jewel Bako. They served a variety of appetizers in the beginning such as tartare, soup, and then a plate of sushi/sashimi/rolls at the end. The appetizers were prepared very nicely, even the miso soup. And the sushi plate had all kinds of different fish that I've never tried before. Is Sushi Yasuda or Kuruma like that? Or do they just serve sushi and sashimi. Oh, and the green tea at Jewel Bako was so toasty and earthy and the color was perfect like a murky green pond. I noticed on my way to the bathroom that there was puffed rice among the tea leaves. Does anyone know what kind of green tea this might be? Everytime I buy green tea, and maybe I'm just not preparing it right, the color isn't green but light brown.
