According to oneYelper:

First of all, I have been going here since the dawn of my move across the boulevard with my mother and sister.

So, I knew Ariyoshi back when it was one narrow space with maybe 3 waiters. The owner has never changed and he's always so accomodating.

 

 

The menu's artistic picture-implementation is a nice stray from plain text. The service is impeccable.

I was surprised to find their floors just recently renovated and a newly-installed bar.

 

 

They're not known for their drink selection, but I'm impressed with the new addition of a sleek bar in the back that I think I'll try and hang out there one day, just for the fun of it. If anything, I can always have some Asahi beer. It's deliciously light. Oh yeh, the food.

 

Let me start by saying that I seriously dislike "philly" style sushi, with cream cheese and BLEGH.

 

I very much enjoy their Kappa-Maki; Spicy Tuna; Yellow-Tail Roll; ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS Broiled Octopus (though, this is cold, beware of confusion); Agedashi Tofu (fried ever-so-lightly);

Beef Skewers are so tender; a Broiled Eel dish that I NEVER thought I would enjoy; and the UDON noodle soup with Tempura is HUGE and will fill two people easily on a cold night.

 

To top that all off, last month, I FINALLY did the boat. For YEARS, I had been waiting to dance my chopsticks on that boat platform.

At the end of it,I was very full and I enjoyed it, but I like to individually customize my dinner Japanese-Tapas style.

This is the reason I stay away from box dinners (unless I'm really lazy, at which point they're a good fit). If I ever have room,

I like to get green-tea ice cream, but this is definitely requires one with an open-mind, so I couldn't recommend it to just anyone. Ariyoshi has a prestigious spot in my story-book-restaurant-memoirs.

 

Hope to see everyone! Yummy!
