Omen Restaurant Review

: Head up a flight of stairs from the street to find this long, narrow Japanese dining room with brick walls and wood floors. As with its family-owned counterparts in Kobe and Kyoto, people come to Omen for the specialty dish of the same name, an elaborate mating of assorted vegetables (spinach, scallions, burdock root and kelp) in a rich chicken broth with dried flakes of bonito, ginger, sesame seeds and udon noodles. For $47.95 diners can enjoy a four-course dinner: two appetizers (including avocado and arugula salad or the house salad of scallops, hijiki, cucumber and crab cake), an entrée with noodles or rice (choose from favorites like tuna steak, mixed tempura and salmon teriyaki) and one of the daily desserts.
