|Hello all... Now that I've recovered from an
excellent weekend in Philadelphia I figured I'd be the first to chime
in here to thank our host Michael Bentele for getting us together
for Morimoto's. John & Jessica, I'm sorry you couldn't join us.
Now for my mini review... WOW!!!!! As we all arrived, we were ushered
up to a nice little bar on the second floor of Morimoto to wait
for our table and enjoy the view over the restaurant. We had a nice
discussion with the ?manager? while we were waiting with some good
information about Morimoto and the restaurant. Our table was ready...
we were brought to a large table, closest to the sushi bar, which
gave us a good view of some of the preparations. There were seven
of us in the group with most ordering variations of the Omakase
and I went for the Chef's Choice Sashimi/Sushi Combo. I'll let the
others chime in with there reviews of the Omakase but from my point
of view everything I got to taste was wonderful... especially the
yummy Kobe Beef.
Probably about a third of the way through the Omakase courses my
Combo arrived... WOW!!! Hopefully we'll all see some of the photos
that were taken but to describe... two huge servings were placed
down in front of me. The first was the Sashimi... a large rectangular
almost "basket" with probably a dozen or so different
fish along with the freshly grated wasabi root.
