Omikase Dinner: Fuji

Bashful3 | Feb 18, 2015 04:58 AM

Usually my friend and I do lunch here, but this was a special treat. Before I describe, here's a question: where else can one
sit down, for either lunch or dinner, without ordering, and know
you will be delighted every time? That is our experience at Fuji,
for both lunch at dinner.

With that said, each surprise was small enough so that 7 or so courses did not over-stuff. First was exquisite: rich broth, filled with eggy custard, duck fois gras, mushrooms, served in tiny
covered cup. Next was a salad accompanied by two tiny bites of
lobster egg roll. Warm Japanese mackerel presentation over the top. This meal would have been lacking without a plate of superb sushi,and we were not disappointed. Hot main was a small piece (thank goodness) of Chilean sea bass sprinkled with oven dried garlic, accompanied by veggies. Dessert again over the top, but irresistible: molten chocolate lava, with the tastiest morsels of fresh fruit. Would you believe $60 for this feast, charmingly described by young servers?

Blissed out, driving home happy, got pulled over by Haddonfield
policeman. (For driving too slowly!) Had to laugh.
