Murasake (Greenville, SC) - It's all about the chef
We had one fantastic meal last night at Murasake downtown. We asked for Omakase at a $60 price point, and not only did we get a tremendous amount of very good sashimi/sushi, including some uni, but we weren't even charged the full amount!
Julia is amazing!
Unfortunately, we had a less than stellar meal at the Murasake at Cherrydale on Saturday for lunch. Because these two restaurants are owned by the same person, the staff may move from one to the other. I'm at the point now that I'm going to call first and see who is working where before I dine.
I'm surprised you didn't stroll up the road and have Koji provide your omakase! =)
I've found the same thing at the Murasaki's. One time will be absolutely great, the next time so bad I promise I won't return. It's a gamble.
Good to know that Julia is worth checking out.
