I had what struck me as a stunningly good meal here yesterday.  Chef Derek Wilcox is getting great fish (mostly from Japan; some from here) and does great things with it.  (Obligatory caveat that I have never been to Japan and know essentially nothing about sushi.)

Care to share more? I went shortly after they reopened following Ichimura's departure and really liked it. At the time he wasn't sure whether he'd stay more than a few months, and no one writes about sushi on here, so I never posted about it. I liked his appetizers/otsumami more than the sushi. The amuse we received was a winking play on a California roll with king crab and avocado.

There was this (cured?) horse mackerel that was spectacular.

Have they done anything with the room? It was so drab and beige, and the HVAC system was loud, so uninspiring, when it was ichimura.
