update: narutomi turning away non-japanese

shipshape | Jan 14, 201510:22 PM    

Was disappointed this afternoon to be turned away from Narutomi and being told it was a "members only" restaurant. I guess this means members of Japan! Seems like a few other people on the internet have had a similar experience here in the last few months. We didn't do anything rude; as soon as we opened the door the server asked "um, can I help you?" in a way that definitely implied we weren't welcome. (For reference, one of is Asian-American and the other is white.)

Just a word of warning!
