finally stopped into this deservedly well received japanese restaurant for lunch and it was a pleasure. the chysanthemum lunch included excellent miso soup, delicious vegetable rice as an accompaniment, a tiny and perfectly fresh salad of microgreens with a single good cherry tomato and a few cucumber slices as a starter, very good green tea served free and refilled frequently, and a gorgeous platter of small tastes including salmon, halibut, seaweed, pickled cauliflower, beet, an exquisite custard with seafood in it, a tofu dish, a small dish of mayonnaise seafood and vegetables and truly yummy side dish of shrimp and vegetable tempura that included two perfect giant shrimps. i thought it was all excellent though i liked some things more than others, beautiful to look at, with first rate ingredients and pleasant service. I think for $16.00 it was a bargain as well. my husband who likes sashimi had the sunflower lunch and said his sashimi was as good as all the other wonderful small things, similar to mine with minor variations. this place is a charmer. lunch wasn't crowded on a monday, so it may be the best time to try it out.
