Morimoto minus sushi?
Was thinking of hitting up Morimoto for the Omakase. Is it worth it if you aren't a sushi person?
depends on what you consider "sushi." (And I'm guessing that there's an official definition, but I do think that the word evokes different meanings from person to person).
I had the omakase once, quite likely the best meal i've ever had, at least in a restaurant.
there was only one straight-up sushi course, but there were other courses that involved raw fish. including the first course, the tuna tartare, which was *awesome*.
they will ask you if there's anything you don't want - when i went, i was with my GF who doesn't eat beef, so there was one course where I had beef and she had fish (cooked, I should note).
Actually, if you are really into sushi, Morimoto is not the best place, try Fuji in NJ instead.
If you are *not* into sushi, then have them sub a few dishes for say the rock shrimp tempura.
