I'm not sure if I'd call it a late lunch or an early dinner but, my travel companions and I dined at a very fine Japanese restaurant in New York City last month one afternoon. When we were finished eating, the restaurant was empty. That made for a great opportunity to photograph the beautiful decor.
The restaurant is called Kappo Masa and it was a delicious experience.
The kitchen was open so we could see the chefs preparing for the evening meals.
I had one of the lunch specials that started with this delicious kale gobo frisée salad. I ate every last bite.
My entree was the steamed salmon on ikuro mushroom rice bento bowl. It was another delicious treat. I must admit that I did ask for a fork for this part. I've never been any good at eating rice with chopsticks.
