I know I must seem like a broken record but things sure do seem to be going a million miles an hour in our household. Pretty sure that’s just life in general for everyone though, isn’t it? Anyway, leave it to my sweet husband to treat me to a surprise date night to sneak in some QT before a few days away on business. As always, he knows the way to my heart is food.
Kiss Seafood is unlike any sushi restaurant I have ever been to. It is more Jiro Dreams of Sushi (if you haven’t seen this documentary you simply must) vs Nobu. A tiny hole in the wall (albeit immaculately clean) run by a sweet older couple with enough seating for ten people. That’s it, ten people total…in the entire restaurant. She is the friendly front of the house moving quickly but calmly from table to table making sure everyone is well taken care of while he is deeply focused in his culinary genius. Every single dish was exquisitely plated and the fish was fresh and cut to the perfect size for eating raw (I hate when it’s too big of a slice!). The tasting menu is fun if you are adventurous and they have lovely sake selections, we tried two and agreed they were the best we have ever had. Plan ahead with reservations as they tend to be pretty busy, especially with a capacity of 10!
