Meiji







Who would've known that a Rival drinking acquaintance (thanks, David!) would end up investing the (former) tourist-trap Yakitori/Sushi-Cho restaurant and make it into one of the more interesting Japanese restos in the Golden Triangle... David, a longtime Paris fixture with contacts in all the right places recently took over the aforementionned place, added a former Nobu Paris chef (bonzai!) , spruced up the place a bit, and revved up the gastronomic quotient. From many a drunken evening pre-opening, with David, I know he's serious about what he's doing. And the Chef, well, let's put it this way, he's been known to disappear with a giant octopus for hours in the kitchen, only to emerge (after much kung fu shouting) with a tray perfect sushi.
We ate tartar of tuna with ginger, warm oysters with saki sauce, raw tuna slivers with sesame and saki sauce, scallops in a "teapot" (drink boullon first, then eat seafood and mushrooms inside) , fresh line-caught seabass, classic sushi platter, all washed down with cold Kirin on tap.

Thanks

What do you mean? There are virtually no good Japanese restaurants in the area. Kinugawa is a little far, and very expensive for what is on offer , before they open their mega-resto on rue Bayard, that is. Othr than that , places like Kaiten and Zen Garden are really crap.
