Shunji Lunch, and persimmon pudding no less

  • k

Here's what I had with the premium lunch:

seabass
trumpet fish
red snapper
brown striped snapper
trout
tuna
toro
sb uni
ikura
albacore
baby yellowtail
snow crab
blue crab hand roll.

then i added three more pieces:

barracuda
marinated 0-toro
hokkaido uni.

and then miso soup with golden eye snapper with the bones.

a bleu cheese purple potato ball topped with sliver of dried persimmon.

dessert: my chocolate mousse, asian or korean pear slices, and persimmon pudding, suave and not too sweet.

In a word: BEYOND FUCKING EXCEPTIONAL.

nuff said.

          How much does it run? I'd be interested if it's not gonna kill me too badly.

            Re: lunch specials

            $23 - 7 pcs + hand roll
            $40 - 12 pcs (more "premium" pcs too) + hand roll

              My rally came out to more like 100 per.

              The otoro and Hokkaido Uni don't come cheap.

              And then desserts too.

              1. re: kevin

                $100+ was my personal lunch tab. My wife's tab came in around $40. Money well spent.

        2. I need to get myself over there and see what all this glory you guys keep talking about is.

          1. Zesty. Is that the 40 dollar one plus extras?

              Yep. But plus extras made it very pricey.

            2. Were there other diners during your excellent lunch?

                  My wife and I were there for lunch a few weeks back. The sushi omakase, as always, was excellent. I was surprised that we were the only customers in the house.
