I'm quite surprised by other reviews stating that Bizen is overrated; the sushi we enjoyed was among the best I've had--so fresh and flavorful, with a gorgeous texture. The grilled eel and boiled shrimp dumplings were stellar as well. Prices were high, true--even compared with Manhattan--so that even if I lived nearby I probably wouldn't be able to frequent the restaurant as much as I'd want to. But I would definitely want to very often!

Unexpectedly good Japanese restaurant. We go there often. The owner studied in Japan; he also makes very good and extremely expensive Bizen-style pottery.

Interesting menu, good soup, decent sushi, good selection of wine, pricey, this is not to die for food, but if you want something light and easy for lunch, not bad

We have been patrons since '97 but missed 3 years. On our return, Michael was great as always. He made us a great sauce with our monkfish liver and an outstanding sea urchin like only he can! Fabulous. Thanks, Michael!

If you are in the mood for sushi - this recent is decent - a bit above average but nothing more. The sushi rolls were nice. The udon soup was relatively tasteless. Nice on tap beer selection
