THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Komeyoshi Restaurant Review

: Tucked into a corner mini-mall, this ever-friendly establishment of chef-owner Yoshio Yonei has relied on a legion of loyal regulars for the past twenty years, but outsiders who stumble upon it will not be disappointed. For one thing, Komeyoshi is home to one of the area's premier shabu-shabu bars, where ten lucky patrons participate in one of Japan's great culinary traditions (thinly sliced beef and vegetables cooked in pots of hot broth). The small sushi bar dispenses high-grade albacore, toro, ankimo and other items, and the sushi chef seems to have a habit of passing out complimentary morsels to delighted customers. The restaurant, which also serves a full menu of tempura, teriyaki and noodle dishes, provides a pleasant, yet predictable, environment.
