Morimoto - any recommendations or tips?
Heading out to dinner with my girlfriend who, believe it or not, has never tried Japanese food. I'm kind of trying to break her in gently.
The idea of raw fish kind of appalls her as much as it thrills me (I'm a sushi devotee from way back, esp Sushi Yasuda - best in NY!) but I'm thinking there must be cooked standouts on the menu at Morimoto, given their reputation (I chose it also because it's near the cinema we're heading to afterwards).
Any tips or reccos?

the spicy king crab is AM-A-ZING! its one of the best things ive ever eaten and its so simple. they take 2 king crab legs, each split into 3 peices and cover them with spicy aoili sauce. i think the legs are just steamed but they come out so creamy and the sauce on top is to die for. everything just melts in your mouth. if she likes crab this is a MUST! hope you guys like it!!
