Pierre and I recently had the Kaiseki dinner at EN Japanese Brasserie, home that incredible fresh tofu. EN offers two kaiseki options: the Soyo Kaze for $65/person and Aozora for $90/person. We went with the latter, figuring that if we were going to do it, might as well go all the way right?
I’m a big fan of kaiseki meals, and though I haven’t tried every place in the city which offers this, the dinners I’ve had at Kajitsu ($70 for 8-courses, all vegetarian) and Kyo Ya ($150 for 11-courses) are my favorites thus far. The $90 kaiseki at EN is a 7-course meal and the most casual of these three restaurants. It’s also the most non-traditional, incorporating ingredients such as foie gras. No complaints there…

P.S. Going to do the Kaiseki dinner at Brushstroke tomorrow night – has anyone gone yet? Still debating between the $85 and $135 kaiseki options…
