Anyone gone to Ame recently?

Looking for suggestions as to what to order for dinner at Ame? Going there on Sunday?

  1. i went a couple months ago and had a great time. the chawan-mushi was one of the best things i have ever eaten. ***do not miss it!*** the black cod was also excellent and very light. it took me a while to realize i was full from it. we also enjoyed the daily crudo and the raw scallops. i preferred the scallops to the crudo, but the SO the reverse. the SO had a beef entree that was no longer on the menu. while the portion was generous, he was not wowed and suffered entree envy.

    also of particular note was the superb service of the sommelier. his suggestions wonderfully complemented the food.

    my birthday is next week and i fully intend to stop by ame for another chawan mushi. the current version is different than the one i had, so i can't wait to compare!

    1. Order the crudo. Lots and lots of crudo with sake pairings.

      Here is my report from the end of March:
