Thanks for the compliments everyone!
We had a larger party that night, so we sat at a table, not the bar.
Dinner that night started for us at 6PM, and thus natural daylight was still trickling through the window - Much to the benefit of the photos...
Photo #8 is kinmedai (golden eye snapper) roe - Yes, it was unbelievable.
Photo #28 is Santa Barbara uni, Miyazaki beef, with Shunji's backyard eggplant. I only enjoyed one piece. I am not worthy of all 4 pieces - it was monstrously delicious.
Dammit J.L. I went nearly two weeks ago and meant to post about it right away, but real life interfered and I finally started working on it this week. I was nearly ready to post last night, but ended up waiting until the morning, and now it looks like I'm copying you! :-) Your photos are great as always!
Anyway, here's my post: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/915789. Let me know what you think of my experiment with using Instagram pics. Were we by chance there the same night (August 23rd)? The "flight of shiromi sashimi" that we both had look identical.
