Going to Yasuda after 9pm - will the sushi be not as fresh as if I go at 7?

Singar Oct 24, 2007 03:30 PM


I have the choice between going at 7pm or 9pm. I prefer 9pm, but if the sushi won't be as fresh then I am willing to make some adjustments to my schedule.

What do you all think?

    I highly doubt 2 hours will make a difference, Singar. Either way, I think you are good--according to Tony Bourdain, restaurants get their fish from vendors every Tuesday and Thursday, so if he's right, you're in for some great sushi tonight!

    I like to eats.

      Thats not true any more, especially for top of the line restaurants, whether sushi or not. They get their fish every single day.

      But you might be rushed by Yasuda and his staff. I was.

        Also, Yasuda ages much of his best fish for days to improve the flavor so a couple of hours will not change anything. The freshest fish is not always the best.

          2 hours will not change the freshness of the fish.
