I am not going to pretend to be a food critic because I'm such a poor writer but I'll let the pictures (bad pics) speak for themselves.
We both ordered the 7-course Omasake and once the order was placed, our waiter warned us the meal will last 1.5h. At the end of the meal, I wish they had offered a butt massage or sushi chef dancers for entertainment purposes. However, David making weird faces while eating wasabi was pretty entertaining.
Here are what we got from the Morimoto Omakase and the would have been price if we ordered it separately). There were a few highly recommended dishes such as the Toro Tartare and the foie gras oyster which were both in the Chef's choice Omakase. The waiter says a couple of the dishes can be interchanged if we didn't like the choices.
The Toro Tartare (Full plate is $28)
Osetra caviar, sour cream, wasabi, dashi soy.
Whitefish carpaccio ($16/$21)
Hot oil, mitsuba leaf
Not on menu. Could have skipped this part. Nice presentacion.
Oyster foie gras nom nom nom ($21)
Market oysters, foie gras, uni, teriyaki sauce .
5 pieces of sushi nom nom nom
Main dish Surf and Turf (~$39)
Wagyu filet and lobster tail/claw.
Finally, the desert.
Mousse cheesecake, cafe sauce, orange sherbet, red bean pastry, shortbread.
The END. Up until the main course, I was thinking of a nice juicy burger from Shake Shack afterwards. After the meal, that was still my thought!
It was a perfect sized meal for a size 0 gal but I am happy we tried this place. My fav would be the oyster foie gras, the white fish carpaccio and the sushi.
