A lot of you ask me to incorporate a map into my blog so you can see on the map where all I have been to. Well, they just added that function so I have just started doing that to all my posts. It only lets me list one location per post however, so this is not going to work so great for posts with multiple locations like I have been doing lately...
I had a friend in town I have not seen in years who wanted sushi, so we tested out Kinjo. They have 2 omakase options: 6 courses for $85 and 9 courses for $120. Chef Takatoshi Toshi (ex Sushi Ran) serves Edomae style sushi at Kinjo, and most of the fish is from Japan. So this may not be the standard sushi that you are used to. For this price, I find the fish extremely fresh and a great dining experience overall. It is, however, extremely loud in this dining room.
