Japonais by Morimoto Restaurant Review

: Collaborating with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, the former Japonais has morphed into Japonais by Morimoto. Expect an updated menu that makes room for some of the dishes previously on offer.

Sad Demise
by Dealguy on Thu Jul 23, 2009 1:19 pm
Having been a good and loyal customer from the beginning, I am sorry to say that Japonais has deteriorated. My experience there a couple of weeks ago is a good, yet tragic, example of this. The filet mignon (which I've enjoyed many, many times before) came out burned to a crisp. No one bothered to check on us to see how our meal was (we were on the outside patio), and I literally had to carry my plate to the host stand and wait for a manager to come out. By the time they had re-cooked it my guest was completely finished with her sushi. The manager did not offer to comp the meal, but instead, informed me to contact the director of operations. Japonais is tired and worn down.
