We had another great meal here last night before the Kimmel concert. So how come it's so empty every time we go? The miso soup is better than average -- filled with mushrooms along with the usual tofu and seaweed. We shared a tataki tuna salad -- ten slices of seared tuna sprinkled with black and white toasted sesame seeds (perfectly fresh) and tiny roe (flying fish, maybe?) atop mixed greens, sliced cukes and grape tomatoes, in a lovely tilted bowl, with a light sesame/soy dressing on the side.
Then we shared three makis -- hamachi with scallion, eel with avocado, and spicy scallop (also with scallion). All three were outstandingly fresh. Many places use chopped up fish on the makis -- these were slices and you could really taste the fish. Two of the rolls were inside-out and rolled in the toasted black and white sesame seeds. The sauces on the eel and scallop were each so good no dipping in extra soy/wasabi was necessary (the hamachi didn't need it either, but I did paint a little on some of the pieces). The ginger seems freshly made and more flavorful than normal. It's a BYOB, but we never bring because it's hard enough staying awake at a concert.
One of these days, we'll go when there is no concert and try the omikase. Please go so they'll stay in business long enough for us to do that.
