THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fuji Restaurant Review: Bring your own wine, beer or saké to this little Japanese cottage amid the fleshpots of Route 130, and ready yourself for the meal of your life (outside of Nobu or Japan). You’ll find beautiful waitresses in kimonos, a very friendly atmosphere and only the freshest ingredients; chef Matt Ito is a member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, so you know that there will be surprises and top-notch preparations. Order a week ahead of time for a multi-course kaiseki meal that could include tuna with osetra caviar, foie gras in a bitter orange sauce, sparkling fresh oysters, dainty squab and frog’s legs with fiddlehead ferns, and loin of New Zealand lamb. The sashimi is so fresh and unusual, it could have just jumped out of the ocean, and they even have a talented pastry chef, Douglas Oyama. This may be the Japanese restaurant you’ve always dreamed of, but never could quite find.
