[QUOTE=BLTLDZ;1016717]Thank you so much everyone.
California grill is already on the list :wub: We love it there!
I was looking for a really good sushi place, so this sounds REALLY good!
Is it comparable to “Kimonos” in the Dolphin?[/QUOTE]
We are very, very particular about our sushi. The tuna needs to be dark red, nearly purple if possible!, and the hamachi needs to have a touch of pink. The fish needs to be sliced perfectly, with none of those long dramatic tails hanging off the rice. The chef needs to work quickly because when we need anothe rorder, we don’t want to wait forever. I mean, we are probably every sushi chef’s nightmare.
The walkway to the Mikado is very lovely – through a Japanese garden and over a pond. Then you go straight into the sushi bar. The chef is quick and the pieces of sushi are perfectly sized, fresh and cut to perfection.
I have never been to Kimono’s, but I have had sushi at Teppan Edo and I did NOT like it at all. There was more attention paid to presentation than freshness and flavor, and we left huge amounts uneaten there.
Note: California Grill has stunning sushi, in particular the Malibu Roll. I see it is already on your list, so Iwanted to mention that if I were going to CG tonight, I would order that Malibu Roll!
