SHIBUCHO in Costa Mesa

Pate' | May 25, 200508:40 PM

I called Shibucho today to see if they are open for lunch on Saturday. The fellow that answered the telephone answered in Japanese. I asked if he spoke english he said "no". There was a long silence, I hung up the telephone. How do I find out if A.) They are open for lunch? B.) Their hours in general C.) How to arrange dinner and arrange for omakase?

I felt badly hanging up but it seemed superfluous to say "good bye" if there was no chance they would understand me.

Is this unusual?
