Restaurant Week - Katsuya

Hubby and I are really enjoying our new loft. Something I have always done when we move, is get brand new linens. Might sound like a lot but we maybe move every 4 years, so it is well overdo when I get them. I always try to go for a new look. This time I went for soft romantic colors. It makes our sanctuary very inviting.

Romantic Tip: Create a romantic bedroom. Spare no expense and splurge on a new romantic-style bed, soft fluffy pillows, sheets, bedspread and curtains that ooze romance. Soft, sensual throw rugs and mood lighting will complete the transformation from dull to soothing and sexy.

Now, on to today's food. Before heading out, I snapped a beautiful sunset picture from our loft to share with you:
I am continuing Restaurant week coverage today. Our pick last night: Katsuya! one of 
OpenTable’s “50 Hottest Restaurants! Featuring the dynamic pairing of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck, Katsuya by Starck is truly a feast for the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors to the American palate. Signature dishes include Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño and Miso-Marinated Black Cod. With superb talent and exacting precision, Katsuya by Starck is changing the face of Japanese cuisine.

Being Restaurant week, there was a price fix menu for $40 per person.
We ordered: 
Hot Sake

Wagu Potstickers
With wasabi ponzu.

Yellowtail Jalapeno
Fresh yellowtail, ponzu and jalapeño make for a guest favorite.
Light and refreshing.

Vegetable Bento Box
Vegetable roll, vegetable tempura, potato, zucchini, and
eggplant robata.

Chefs Choice Sushi and Sashimi platter
Chef’s best assorted tuna, albacore, yellowtail, salmon,
halibut, shrimp, octopus, freshwater eel and egg, served

Chai Tea Cheesecake

To sum it up, Katsuya is amazing if you love sushi and are willing to pay for the difference between good sushi and great sushi. It definitely falls in the "great sushi" category. The ambiance was high-end chic. If you have time, restaurant week is a great chance to enjoy this place!
