I have a gift card for yamashiro, have read that the food is mediocre at best (???) so not overly concerned about the price as I am not really paying for it. Want to just make the best of it and order something that is good. Avoiding red meat and sushi as we are pregnant. Any ideas?
Also, can I sneak in with a dressy top and neat jeans or is that too cas?
This will probably ruin my foodie cred or something, but I really didn't think the food was mediocre -- I thought it was good for that type of pan-Asian food. We liked the lamb chops and the black cod, and I enjoyed the sides like black rice and apple coleslaw. And it's certainly a great space.
While the food is not that great, it certainly isn't all bad and definitely no worse than many Japanese restaurants around town (like Sushi Roku or Hump).
Go and enjoy the view and (free!) food.
