Morimoto for Business Dinner

I have some clients coming in to town for a business dinner and one of them suggested Morimoto. I've only sat at the bar, so I'm looking for guidance on whether or not they would have the proper seating for a group of 6. Also, knowing that one of the attendees is not a sushi fan, can anyone tell me about some of the hot, non-seafood dishes they've had at Morimoto? Thanks.

  1. They have a good dry aged sirloin, and a fun dish where you cook kobe beef on hot rocks. Those are the only dishes I have had or been with a DC who has had it.

    They have chicken and pork dishes on the menu as well. An entree that is a cooked fish that is very good is the miso cod, but you mentioned that the person that you are concerned about does not like seafood, so that doesn't help you much.

    Personally, I think that Morimoto when you are not doing the Omakase (chef's tasting) is probably not the best experience. If everyone gets an omakase, its a great group experience.

      +1 on omakase. that's the way to go. I've only been once, but it was awesome.

    2. mmmm I had it many years ago so I don't know if it would be on the menu, but I had the restaurant's version of bi bim bop (my first taste of that dish ever) and I really enjoyed it.
