Sushi Yasuda and Kosherness

mjl242 May 24, 2010 09:41 AM

I have reservations for four people to Yasuda at the sushi bar with the master chef himself. One of the guys I invited is Jewish and has some dietary restrictions, not like being able to eat shellfish and eel.

You think that would be a problem with our meal? Does the chef cater to such restrictions?We planned on getting the omakase.

    The guy should just tell hiim what he doesn't eat....it's totally fine.

      Of course. He'll ask for your preferences or dislikes so just tell him what you can't/won't eat.

        I suggest asking the guy who keeps kosher what he needs/is comfortable with and following that.

          You should definitely ask the guy. "Not eating shellfish" is quite different from "keeping kosher." (If he really keeps kosher he wouldn't eat anything at a place that serves shellfish, but if that's the case I can't imagine that he would have agreed to go out for sushi in the first place.)
