Monday Morning Quaterbacking -- Sushi Sono

sushisonoHere is the review of Sushi Sono. I received a nice email this morning from the an associate* of the restaurant, who encouraged me to come back and visit Sushi Sono again at a quieter time. He suggested shortly after the 5 p.m., when the restaurant re-opens for dinner.

I will do that. 

If I gave the impression in the review that the frenetic pace and the hectic atmosphere were reasons not to go to Sushi Sono, then I didn't accomplish what I wanted to do. Absolutely, you should go to Sushi Sono -- but just be aware that it's grown into a popular destination.

It's the case with most restaurants but a sushi restaurant in particular that the second visit will be better than the first.  

* In the interest of full disclosure, I'll mention that the email was written by a name I recognized as belonging to a fellow alum of Campfield Elementary School. Think Skull & Bones.

Lunch. Yes. A long, languorous lunch.

Has anyone eaten the snapper special in the photo?

It's a small snapper, which I think they say comes from Japan. They turn half into sushi and half into sashimi. Then, they serve it with that body. I have seen it, but I have never justified the $27/28 price.

I am very jealous. I have always wanted to go there but being a city resident and carless it seems unlikely.
