Best Upscale Japanese in San Francisco?
We are coming to San Francisco soon and we were wondering If anyone could offer some recomendations for some upscale Japanese restaurants - it would be greatly appreciated. Preferably somewhere with things besides Sushi, someplace like Nobu with good cooked dishes as well. Our last trip we tried Azuma(sp??) but we would like to try something different this time.
Japanese friends of mine really enjoy the cooked stuff at Kiku of Tokyo (traditional). There are a few decent Yelp reviews too.
Presume you mean Ozumo for "Azuma" and Kappa is in Japantown, not Pacific Heights. Ozumo is probably the closest think to upscale Nobu-like Japanese in San Francisco. I've been several times over the years and thought it was quite good three or four years ago; it has moved downscale some since then, and is not nearly as creative.
