Kajitsu: A Great Gift to the People of NY
By mmathieu on 3/10/2012
I generally write reviews after several experiences in an establishment but I am making an exception in this case. As a vegetarian and lover of Japanese food, I had high expectations for Kajitsu yet my expectations were exceeded by the excellent sourcing of ingredients prepared elegantly with pure but not excessive flavor. We enjoyed the four-course tasting menu and added a fifth course of soba noodles. Every course was a treat, so much so that we simply could not pick a favorite, as is often the case with tasting menus. Our very helpful server helped us select an excellent sake with which to accompany our meal. If I lived in or near NYC, I would be a regular customer. Even though I am five hours away, I am planning my next visit as surprise for my daughter who will graduate from college this Spring, 2012.
Good if you like gelatinous substances.

This is over-priced new york nonsense and I'm a new yorker who typically likes that stuff. I have never had a meal that I enjoyed as little as this one. If you like very expensive gelatinous substances artfully positioned on a plate, this is the place for you. If you like modern art, like white canvases with one shade of white paint, this is the place for you. If you like pretentious expensive stuff because it is pretentious and expensive, this would also be the place for you. If you like Japanese food, go to Sushi Yasuda. If you like vegan food, go to Peace Food Cafe. All I can say is Puke. Summer, 2013.
