Secchu yokata is another option, even lower pricepoint. Mostly tempura.

Cagen! Not sure the state of their wine list these days but corkage fee is reasonable (30 I think?), or get sake.

Bowls are better than food wrapped in a disgusting mass produced tortilla, I'll give then that.

Front landscaping just went in...it looks awful. For some reason our landscaper decided a few (very large and very expensive) round boxwoods would look great scattered around the front of the house. Ugh. They look like magical creatures about to come alive from one of my daughter's cartoons.

Room feels less austere this time around, Chef Wilcox is certainly more outgoing than Ichimura. Also they've added a single piece of art behind the counter which at least gives your eyes something else to look at.

Food was very good though I liked the small plates much better than the sushi. Rice was a bit warm for my tastes. Very Frenchette-y wine list (Jorge is good friends with Eidon I guess) but had a really good bottle of chenin (def in the natural style tho). I prefer omakase spots where everyone sits at once, we had the 6pm reservation and the meal started to drag once the later seatings got going. All in 2 hr 45 minutes is a bit long, The later seatings had nearly caught up to us by the time we left. I guess this is why most other sushi places have more than 1 sushi chef working at the bar.
