New Japanese Restaurant - New Brunswick, NJ

Has anyone been to the new upscale Japanese joint on George in NB?

It looks like a lounge and by walking by, it had an intriguing menu- I would love to hear if anyone has been to this restaurant as of yet and your thoughts..

    It's called Hotoke - http://www.hotokerestaurant.com/

    We had a dinner there yesterday - very hip decor, remiscent of upscale asian places in NYC or SF. The food is quite good too though a bit pricy. We liked lobster spring roll with wasabi cream, and vegetable dumplings with yuzu/soy sauce, Excellent sashimi.

      It is fusion--stuff like short ribs cooked in mirin along with traditional and unusual sushi. The food is quite good, the service is very friendly, and a good range of sake.
