Hello I will be visiting Seattle for the first time onmthe first weekend of Oct. i really want to go to Shiro's but everything I have read recommends getting there early and sitting at the bar so you can have the chef prepare the meal im front of you.
Since I will have limited time in Seattle, standing in front of the restaurant before it opens just isn't feasible time wise. Do you think it's absolutely necessary tomsit at the bar? Will I not get the full "experience" if I don't? Can I just reserve a table and get the omasake and have the same experience and meal that someone sitting at the bar would?
