That Japanese Place on Central Avenue?

The one next to IHOP? Some of you had written about it previously. Is it still good? I can't remember the name of it.

    I concur with Jay below. Thought you might be talking about Central Avenue in Albany. Given the scope of "Tristate", it certainly helps if a poster can narrow the query down a bit. There are a lot of Central Avenue's in the various cities/burgs/towns/villages that this board encompasses. My particular gripe, and I've seen it more than once on this board, is when someone asks for a recommendation in the Adirondacks. Six million square acres of land, and we are supposed to respond to that sort of question?

    It's a disease particularly prevalent among NYC dwellers, who, in verification of the classic New York cartoon, don't believe that there is a universe north of the Harlem River.

    Not particularly picking on you, dschube, but just a general rant about some of the queries on this board

      Yup, 'upstate NY' can get lumped in with an area of millions of square acres. I think it's funny when NYC people ask about a good stop betwen NYC and Montreal. Approx a 300 mile stretch, yeah I'd say it would help if people narrow it down. I too, thought this was Central Avenue in Albany (the state Capital!). We were in Montreal last weekend. We met this family from LA who, after learning we were from Albany, remarked that after Montreal they are travelling near Albany - Niagara Falls! Sheeesh....

      We went yesterday for lunch based on all the great recommendations on Chowhound. Loved it! We split a bunch of small dishes, as well as the tempura scallops entree. Both the food and the service were excellent. I'm already thinking about what I want to try when I go back.

          Wow.. Sounds good. Do you know their hours? Are they open on Weekends? How about evening? Also, do you know approximately how much are their entrees? Thanks ahead of time.

          The name is "Fujinoya" I haven't been but a few of my friends have and they all said good things about it. A few have said that it is very "authentic" which would lead me to believe it's the real deal.

            We love it! The sushi is fresh and the cooked food is wonderful. It's very small, just a couple of tables.
