Sushi Yasuda report

Skillet Licker | Dec 17, 2007 10:42 PM

Strolled in late one night by myself and sat at the bar. My chef was the fourth down line, Yasuda being the first (the chefs appeared to be arranged according to experience/mastery).
I basically had this chef to myself and he was quite amiable. I ordered omakase and assured the chef that I love everything - no limitations. At several points he asked whether I wanted to keep going, and keep going I did. The final tally was 32 pieces of sushi (no repeats), two Sapporo beers, and a divine green tea mochi for dessert. With tax and tip the bill came to just over $200 and was worth every penny. Everything was exquisite. One particularly memorable piece was not even fish but rather a tasty and refreshing "scallion sprout" sushi. Nor was this meal the gluttonous indulgence that it may appear as the sushi is classically sized and really just a small bite each.
