Omakase sushi in Tuscon, or maybe Phoenix
Sorry, I don;t know the name, but the restaurant served up full-course, omakase menus about ten years ago, and roughly the same time there was a review on it in Gourmet magazine. And back then teh full course meal was about 80 bucks or a 100 for ten courses.
Anyone, have any clue about what I'm getting at? Does it even still exist? Name?
thanks a bunch.
nope, if this helps i think it was maybe in scottsdale, and was a one syllable japanese nam (?) maybe starting with an H--- (but one syallable). and it may have been more of a restaurant witha special omakase section at a sushi bar.
sorry about the vague description but it's all i got goin on at the moment.

>> Your most memorable meal (not necessarily on the same trip)? Ten-course Japanese extravaganza at tiny Sea Saw in Scottsdale. Half the fun was in watching chef Nobuo Fukuda perform behind a counter that couldn't have seated more than 20 people. <<
Sea Saw is no more. Nobuo Fukuda is now at Nobuo at Teeter House in downtown Phoenix. I don't think omakase is offered, at this time.
You should probably post on the Phoenix board, if you're sure it was Scottsdale, and you think it was another place. Sea Saw opened in 2002, but, that was a little before I moved there, myself.
