The New Sasabune

Well, they have moved to a better location and my sister will be clerking for a law firm in the building this summer, so I decided to check it out today.

It's not the worst restaurant in town anymore.

Underground parking is free with validation and was nice to have today even if it meant going down to P5 where most of the visitor parking lies.

The most dramatic difference is in the ATTITUDE -- the airy open space seems to have made everyone happier because the waitresses were downright friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. I saw the sushi chefs smiling and chatting up the customers at the sushi bar. As Blanche said when she saw Dorothy had picked out the same dress for a social function, "I-i-i-i-it can't be."

Chef's special:
-- a plate with maybe ten pieces of albacore sashimi drowning in sauce (tasted good though)
-- a cup of soup "made of salt" with a few scattered greens and leaves
-- sushi: tuna, toro, halibut (yum), ono, butterfish (yum), yellowtail (2 pcs), scallop, salmon, albacore and kampachi (yum)
-- blue crab handroll to die for (better than Echigo)

I had a Diet Coke. Total w/o tip: $42.49.

The fish is very fresh and there were quite a few people so turnover is presumably high, which is good. The taste ranged from fair (just a couple pieces) to good (most) to very good (the yums).

The pens are very pretty.

I'll have to find a new worst restaurant in town.
