A Table for How Many? at Seki
|User "Alton," Wikimedia Commons|
Arrived at Seki. They forgot our reservation, but they are putting together tables for us.
Huge menu. Lots of choices for people who don't want sushi! Great place to take a group where some don't like raw fish.
Server is being very attentive. Gave us extra sushi menus so we could each fill out our own.
Wow! These Japanese-style large oysters are tasty! Too bad you aren't here to try some (not that I'd share)!
Sushi is coming out piecemeal.You can't expect everything at the same time when there is only one sushi chef. No one seems to mind.
Fish is fresh. People seem really happy. Everyone is talking about coming back to try the ramen. (It's only available at lunch.)
Figuring out this check is a pain! They listed all the sushi together. We need to go back to the menu to figure out how much everyone owes.
How would you feel if at a group dinner (like on a plane) you were told to turn off all portable electronic devices? Leave a comment and let me know!FroYo is next door. We're thinkin' about it. But guess we'll go home to the baby.
