what do i order; sushi nanase
Going to be in westchester tonight and a friend suggested Sushi nanase in White Plains. Have not ventured out of the city to often and hoping that it is worth my while.
What should i be ordering? What is the BEST? And should i be expecting anything else?
Dolores is right, it's all good. If you care to splurge, get the omakase dinner. There is also a sushi platter that has about 8 different pieces on it, 8 little pieces of heaven. Try at least 2 or 3 different types of sake and compare & contrast. Also, do a search on this board for details about other CHs' experiences.
enthusiast, I'll have to defer to others. It all blurred together into one dining nirvana.
If I were there again, I'd try the gingko nuts, I passed them by last time. And have the sake, it's a very nice generous pour.
Worth your while? Oh yes, like almost no other place in Westchester.
Dolores, Dim Sum Diva:
You were RIGHT! How fantastic everything was. I did happen to read some o the other remarks that are on the board and did not experience anything was was not on the plain of pleasant and perfect.
I was told that they change their Omakase seasonally ( or monthly, i forget ) that we were first to try.
And to top it off, Their daughter and granddaughter were there celebrating the granddaughters birthday. ( BTW, both beautiful ) Beacause of this everyone was in a superb mood.
Thanks for all the positive heads up!
I'm glad you enjoyed your meal, enthusiast! I love the place.
Too late for your meal, of course, but one dish I love there is the sliced scallops with truffles and sea salt. So good!
What did they serve for the new omakase?
Well without sounding like to much of a food critic here we go:
Starter was a bell pepper and fresh orang juice blend jelly. ( yum! )
Next was a plate of everything autumn inspired. Some mushrooms with caviar. Japanese steamed sweet potato. Kiwi mixed with a sesame paste. and roasted chestnuts.
Followed by the wonderful scallops as Shawn loves.
Next the broiled sea bass. That ginger root that accompanies it, Wow, how interesting and great!
And the grand entrance of the sushi combo. And very different from any sushi combo that i have had. ( you know they are usually bad with everything that people do not want to order all on one plate )
Washed it all down with echigo beer to start ( made of rice vs. the typical grain, so it goes with sushi very well ) and some yebisu ( which i am soooo glad it is back in the states )
Had some sake ( the one labeled " go oku nen " ). It's the purple bottle with the translation being 500,000 years.
Spoke alot to the chef and wife, and yes you guys are right, not very good english, but good for me my japanese is up to par. They both are lovely and i plan on coming back. ( once i can amp myself up to go on that metro north again and be rejected by all thos e cab drivers, which is a whole other conversation in itself. )
Thank You guys!
the secret with the cabs in white plains is you say you are going to mamaraneck ave and bloomingdales road while getting into the first empty cab; you fares are usually shared. you are going towards the south end of town.
your meal sounded great. have eaten there once since it opened at the sushi bar and it was great. my better half only eats salamon sushi w/o wasabi so it is a waste for us to go together.
