An Evening of Celebration and Poetry at Nakato
When you reserve this room, there is an option for a prix fix menu, but we went with the $15/pp. room charge (which includes two appetizers), and let everyone order a la carte. We even ordered a few sake-bombs, which was much more accepted than at Tomo. Our waitress set the shots of sake on two chopsticks over the glass of beer, however we separated the chopsticks by hand at the big moment (vs. banging the table very hard and have them fall in on their own).
As you would expect, Lady Steakhead and I ordered from the sushi menu with another couple. I thought the yellowtail, maguro, scallop, unagi and our assortment of rolls (rainbow, super-crunch and spicy tuna) were all excellent. We even splurged on the Toro. But for those not interested in sushi, there is an extensive Japanese menu of cooked items as well.
For this gala affair, Nakato offered everything I was looking for. It was different, and certainly fun. The private room allowed us to be goofy. And the service was very accommodating. I did miss the big spectacle when they brought the cake out, as I was in the bathroom at the time, but I won’t dock them too much for that, as they were really great in every other aspect of our dinner. (Next time, they should check with the person in charge before bringing the cake out.) And for those that came, here is one last haiku for you:
Thank you for coming,
And for all those great poems.
Yes Nick , even yours.
