Does Moriomoto ever actually work the line at Morimoto, and if so on what days?

A friend has somewhat of a Morimoto (the person) obsession and wants to go to his restaurant on a day when he will actually be there (I know, based on the reviews here, it's probably not worth it...but). Does anyone know if he works a regular schedule, or even if he is there on a regular basis at all?

  1. For what it's worth, I was there about two years ago, and after a short wait, we were shown to our table by a host. Chef Morimoto followed us into the room and helped seat my daughter and myself. Nice smile, polite bow, not chatty so much. The food DID seem to taste a bit better that night, but I'm easily impressed by fame (and bright, sparkly things). (It was a Saturday @ 9:00, BTW ...)
