I don't mind super authentic, "we make it this way...if you don't like it, don't come here" as a premise...a restaurant owner is entitled to do whatever they like with their own establishment.
this is the same concept as SugarFish, chef dictates what goes with what, what gets dipped, etc. But there, ultimately, they let you dip if you want, or eat how you want, since yknow, YOU are paying for it....they don't REMOVE the soy sauce bottle off the table just because they "advise" that the albacore already has ponzu on it.
At Sushi Zo, they pull off the service end so incredibly wrong. I was told THREE times by a waiter "DO NOT DIP." and removed my sauce dish from the table.
Excuse me, at the end of the day, I am paying you. I appreciate your "recommendation" on how you believe this food "should" be consumed, but get OUT of my face.
I also didn't find the sushi to be ANYTHING special, nowhere near the taste, freshness or presentation that a place like SugarFish provides, which again aims for the same "authentic" experience, but to say it pulls it off much better, is a major understatement.
