Going there tonight and everything looks good. What do you recommend?

    Not a good experience. The cooked food was horrible. Go with the sushi. The Shochu (sp?) was expensive and not worth it as we walked out stone cold sober.
    I would avoid if you still have the chance

      hi sandwich, i like EN and think it's a good choice. if you like tofu, try the fresh, house-made stuff. i do not think the sushi there is particularly good and would avoid it.

        Looks like you'll have to order both and be the tie-breaker...

          hah -- very diplomatic solution, and really a good one for all such questions: when in doubt, order it all!

          btw, i forgot to mention earlier: there is a tongue entree on the menu that i liked, as well, and braised berkshire pork belly. the real star is the tofu, though.

          i went there a few years ago and had a very negative experience...for all i know i may have improved, but my initial impression was so bad that i wouldn't return w/o extenuating circumstances (i.e. if someone was treated and they refused all suggestions to go elsewhere)

            I went and thought it was Ok. The tofu was the star and the cod was good as well. Had some eggplant dish and tuna/avocado dish that were so-so. Kind of expensive too.
