monkfish liver in philly?

anyone know any sushi restaurants that offer monkfish liver either on or off menu? it's in season and I've been missing it since I moved here almost 2 years ago.

  1. Well the obvious place to suggest is Morimoto. I am sure I have seen Matt Ito serve it at Fuji in Haddonfield. I would also check with Zama and Zento in CC.

    Its never going to be a regular item, so I would call ahead and see if they have any or know when they might be getting some in.

      Good suggestion, cw. I have enjoyed it at Fuji in Haddonfield, but it would be wise to check first on the phone.

    2. Had it in three courses at Morimoto about 6 weeks ago.

      1. thanks guys... I was hoping that there would be more neighborhood/less pricey places than Morimoto, so hopefully zama and zento might come through. When in season it seemed fairly readily available at more nondescript sushi places when I've eaten out in Brooklyn or Minneapolis, so I had hoped Philly wouldn't be much different.

          Fuji is hardly nondescript, but it isn't pricey either.(Haddonfield)

        2. bluefin on germantown ave had it some months back as a special.. might be worth checking in..
