Re: “Miso Izakaya

I was just in there the other night, the food was absolutely amazing. Especially at the price you pay! They did things that I never knew was possible with the ingredients used, I cook at home alot or try rather and i have never been able to make meat as tendor and tasteful as theirs. As for the sushi, I disagree with the author's review. I haven't had sushi this good/fresh in a long time. I dare say that their variety of sushi is comparable to the more high end and high priced sushi joints such as MF and Blue Fin. Same great taste, and alot easier on the wallet. Why not go here instead? But what got me even more excited about coming back is I hear that there is a new menu which is about to drop in and it has over 60 different menu items. The server was telling me about a new idea to the izakaya plates and it sounded absolutely amazing. Something about warm pastry buns that had different types of meats packed in such as pork belly, tonkatsu, a japanese hamburg(I have no clue what this is, but it sounded delicious), and more! Another thing I liked about the restaurant is that our server seemed to know just about everything there was to know about the restaurant, the food, and the drinks. It was as if i was talking to the chef/owner himself. He was also very personable and fun to talk with, especially after a few drinks. I will definately be a regular customer to this establishment for it has opened my eyes and got me thinking about where I should be spending my money for some good sushi, good drinks, and good food. Keep up the good work!! OH another thing, The server has me sold on a new Japanese beer that I hear that their the only restaurant in the southeast to stock them. Its a weizen beer and came in a blue bottle, the name of the beer escapes me but the taste is forever etched my brain. Give it a try whenever you get a chance, they go quick. Just about every table in the place had atleast one bottle present.

Re: “Closing time: what do a restaurant's hours really signal?

I dont know about the rest of you, but I think that it is simply common courtesy to NOT eat at a restaurant that is about to close. I mean sure you're hungry, sure you probably fancied a bite at your favorite restaurant, or maybe you wanted to try a restaurant for the first time. But don't be an a-hole and walk in right before the kitchen closes and everyone is ready to go home. Think about it this way, for you to eat at that restaurant, right before close is holding up an entire line of employees from getting home to their families after a long day's work. Any of you who have worked as a server or in a restaurant in general know that it is a daunting and energy draining task that tests one's patience regularly. The poster could have EASILY picked a restaurant with later business hours, dined there, and would have been just fine. But instead the poster decided to dine in LATE having to make 6 or 12 or however many people work at the restaurant wait for her sorry self and to add fuel to the fire make a useless article about it. Besha, just a word of advice before you go out to eat late night, check the hours before making the drive, this establishment probably went ahead and sat you with great reluctancy praying that you would have gotten the hint. In case you're not bright enough to see where that hint was, the bit about the kitchen is about to close, was a big a signal as any. The next step beyond that would be to shoot a giant light in the sky advertising to GTFO. Had it been me that was your host, I would have sent you packing and well on your way to the Mcdonalds Drive Thru line. You're extra few bucks isn't going to help anyone at the end of the night, so i completely understand why your server nor the rest of the staff did not want you there. Remember, its easy to complain now but put yourself in their shoes and think about it. What you're complaining about is not irrational, think about these kinds of things before posting again.
