One of the finest meals of my life. Straight up food porn. Japanese food in its purist, most mind-blowing form. Nevermind the sanded cyprus wood sushi bar, the gold flakes adorning the uni inside of a japanese crab shell on top of glowing embers, or chef Hiroyuki Urasawa leaning over the bar with his chopsticks to place the perfect amount of freshly grated wasabi root on your toro sashimi set atop a carved ice sculpture, or the live abalone (oh yes!) flown in straight from Japan being carved into sushi and in your mouth moments later.....or the Japanese waitress who attentively watches your every move and wipes down the cypress wood between each and every of the 29 courses, Chef Hiro-san brings you to nirvana with a mixture of Hokkaido and Kyoto style dishes. The Kyushu wagyu beef and foie gras shabu shabu were transcedental, along with the toro sushi and the various uni offerings. Come with an extremely empty stomach as I ended up very very full, and on sushi we all know how hard that is to do.Every single course (several of which were "what?? OhMyGod!") was prepared by the hands of the extremely friendly and masterful chef Hiroyuki Urasawa a mere few feet away from us. How many Michelin 2 star restaurants do you go to with this kind of personal attention from the chef? None. We sat through our first 15 courses and we were the ONLY people in the entire restaurant, conversing with the chef about Japan, how he likes to surf, that he did a 6 day fast, and that Katsu-ya maybe overextending his empire....when I was at Del Posto, Mario Batali wasn't standing in front of me cooking ragu bolognese...there is an experience to be had here on a different level On the verge of sounding insane, this temple of Japanese gastronomy offers an experience at a price that was almost a bargain ($275 pp tax/service not included).

Avoid this restaurant. Urasawa does not pay overtime to its employees and fires them for taking sick days off. Shame on those who take their business to Urasawa. You are supporting slave labor.

Mixed feelings. Many of the dishes were creative with excellent ingredients. Sushi was the major flaw as many fell apart when picked up. This shouldn't happen. At one point, Hiro tells a diner to stop talking to him because it's difficult to make sushi. We compare Urasawa to a girl that you really want to like: She's gorgeous, with great credentials and athletic but once she opens her mouth you are shocked and thus turned off.

Possibly the three best meals I have ever eaten; without contest, the three greatest Japanese meals anywhere, including Tokyo. A small, warm, convivial yet serene spot where you will see food as art at a very high level.

The student has become the master. Urasawa is the best sushi I've had in the US, hands down (and definitely better than Masa in New York). Make reservations beforehand, be prepared for a pricey bill, and just leave your palate in the hands of the chef.
