Hi Saito san and everyone,
Has you been to Hatsunezushi recently? I plan to book it but from my research so far it’s a pretty polarizing place. It’s the first time I’ve heard quite a few negative feedback on a place of this high caliber and reputation? What’s your view on it if you have visited it? I’m tempted to book it but looks like it’s risky cos the price is so high. Thanks a lot and I’d really appreciate your comments.
i dont know about you, but if you waited in line before at the first location, it is not comfortable at all.. waiting down the stairs for such a long time. many tourists make the line longer. reservation maybe make it much easier.
@D Rather than describing it as quiet, i would call it elegant/serene. I seem to recall a piano music playing in the background. If you visit on the weekday 5pm slot, you could be the only guests there. Perfect date spot for impressing your wife.
He may not be the most boisterous chef around, but he is very willing to share if you try to ask him about his materials/prep work. He also has a funny side to him. When he heard that i visited sushi yu,he keep on doing the sushi yu gesture of sticking out the sushi on his palm.
They are completely different. Miyoshi focused more on expensive over the top ingredients & theatrical effect while Jo offered more variety of dishes showing the culinary skill of the chef, in additional to ingredient sourcing skill. Jo is a smaller restaurant with wooden counter. It’s a simple yet elegant restaurant so the vibe at both places is completely different too. By the way, there’s one gentleman in their board wrote his comment on Miyoshi on this board too.
