japanese prix-fixe

bigjeff Mar 2, 2009 08:43 AM

i know this might fall under what is usually an omakase; does anyone know of good tasting menus available at any japanese restaurants? would end up like a glorified bento let's say, but served course-by-course, e.g., choice of salad or miso, fried app, non-fried app, veg, main, choice of dessert, etc.

zenkichi comes to mind but, are there other ones, not necessarily sushi, and available as a regular menu choice?

    High end would be Morimoto or Soto. They don't stay with the regular sushi menu. There are also Bond St, Sushi Samba, Rosanjin.

      ever had the rosanjin? totally forgot about that; pretty high-end kaiseki right? mid level would be good, thanks so far.

      I can't figure out if you're looking for a dinner combo or a chef's kaiseki or tasting menu or something like that. Some other choices would be places like Tsukushi, Lan, or Takesushi (formerly Ichimura).

        definitely less a kaiseki or tasting and more of a . . . . dinner combo but, looked up tsukushi and that definitely sounds good, esp. that it is more home-style and casual versus a very formal/fancy kaiseki. thanks for that rec, sounds perfect.
