O Ya - potentially better than Uni

limster | Mar 9, 2007 05:54 AM

Had an excellent meal at the O Ya. Despite a few opening night kinks in some of the cooking, the food was multifaceted but nuanced and subtle and outstanding on the whole. The meticulously assembled nigiri and sashimi dishes were superior to the cooked dishes from the kitchen. Instead of the Nobu-like dishes at Uni that are now "classics," the dishes at O Ya are of their own. Will post details when I get a chance, but the standouts were the kinmedai sashimi, the daikon "dumplings" with miso-nut filling and the Santa Barbara spot prawn nigiri. Prices are comparable to Uni. Will be exciting to see how this place holds up in the long run.
