Enjoying the pre-Memorial Day night out, I decided to venture out to dinner before the onslaught of tourists, day-trippers and holiday crowds.
Always hearing about now as one of the best sushi houses in the Hamptons, my guest and I decided to listen to what we were hearing.
Small and unassuming, it was like walking into a small village house in Japan. Soft instrumental music and a light wood panel decor graced the interior. There is a bar for a casual feel, small tiny tables to sit at, and then a traditional shoeless booth that we decided upon.
A welcoming staff pointed out the specials and her desired favorite. Ordering green tea, it came in classic porcelain and was piping hot. After a few moments of looking at an extensive menu, we noticed how economical the pricing was ... incredible in comparison to so many others are presenting out East here. Please take notice Sen!
Starting with a simple tuna, as well as salmon roll, it arrived in moments with just clean and simple presentation — fresh and well made. For an entree, we ordered the menu udon noodle. Amazing! Stir fry vegetables with traditional hand-pulled flour noodles were both very delicate and yet perfectly prepared. Small bites and flavors of chilis speckled the noodles to really give it that pleasant surprise.
Never hurried or pressured, my guest and I were given the opportunity relax and enjoy wonderful conversation between one another. Delicious dinner, great conversation, wonderful ambiance — and it didn't break the bank? We will definitely be back...
And that's The Last Bite...
