San Rafael - Umi Sushi & Grill?
Has anyone tried this place yet? It is in the spot that once housed Akira.
The owner's mother makes the noodles for their udon
The place record has some blog links with photos.

Thanks. The IJ didn't show up in the google search yet last night.
Interesting ... Harlib starts ...
"When I come across a dense four-page menu as esoteric as Umi Sushi's in downtown San Rafael, I get frustrated. I wish I could be dining with a party of six or more so we could work our way through the offbeat choices that will likely be new experiences for anyone who's never been to Japan."
It makes me wish I knew more about Japanese food to know what is unique on that menu. The website doesn't have the menu yet. I do know I want to try that dessert ... house-made cream anmitsu ... one of the blogs has a picture of it and also speaks highly of it and the house-made ice cream.
The deep-fried chicken skin (torikawa baribari) sounds great. Harlib's description makes it sound delicious.
Hope some Chowhound reports back. I'm going to give it a try when I get over there one of these days for the Thursday farmers market.
