Okonomiyaki in DC?
Are there any restaurants in the DC/Northern VA area that have okonomiyaki? I'm a huge fan, but I haven't been able to find a place around here...
I believe they have something like it (an omelette/pancake sort of thing) at Chez Mama San in Georgetown. But I don't know what the status of the place is. I heard they were going to close down, but they have a recording now saying they are on vacation and will reopen in December. I've never eaten there.

I'd hate to see it go; I like very much. Unfortunately, there are rarely many diners in it. Perhaps the location or lack of attention? In any event, it would be sad to see it leave. Nice ambiance, quiet, good food, friendly attentive servers [although sometimes a bit of a language barrier]. Except for the parking issue, it is a wonderful little place.
I just phoned Chez Mama San. They are open. Last seating tonight -- Thurs., Jan. 4, 2007 -- is at 10:00 p.m.
Unfortunately, Chez Mama San no longer has okonomiyaki on the menu- the waiter told me that they only served it at lunch previously, and they now only serve dinner. Any other okonomiyaki options that anyone knows of?
Chez Mama San's food was excellent, although the service was a bit slow.
