To kick off my return from a brief absence (due to a combination of laziness, work, and recent weekend getaways), here are the photos from my last 2 Shunji visits. My visit in July was a standard omakase, and my visit last week was technically a sushi omakase, but Shunji-san gave me some extra dishes as well. I think it was the 1st time I was so nigiri-focused here, but it really does show how good (and how far the fish selection has come along) the sushi is at the restaurant (calling J.L. from Chowhound). Also, I met one of Shunji-san’s former coworkers at Asanebo, Shogo-san, who currently works at San Shi Go in Newport Beach, and was there with his gf celebrating their 4-year anniversary. Congrats guys (and thanks for sharing the sake)!
