Yup, I'm the spoilsport. I'm the one who's going to say that the Emperor has no clothes. I'm the one who's going to say that Kazu is, gasp(!), average.
Now before all of Kazu's fan get in an uproar, let me say that average isn't bad. It's, well, average.
I'd been to the old restaurant and now the new one and honestly, I never had my socks knocked off by their sushi.
One a website, I see references to sushi 2.0. To me, it's more like sushi remedial class. The flavors and textures don't excite me. In fact, some of their rolls seem more like they threw everything in the kitchen into the roll with no thought to complementing those ingredients. To use criticspeak, the sushi wasn't harmonious.
Oh, one other thing. When we were there relatively early on a Saturday night, the noise from the bar area was really loud, so loud that everyone at our table had to stop talking every now and then because we couldn't hear anything we were saying.
If Kazu's owner wants to own a bar, then open one, where the more boisterous clients can go crazy. But when we spend our money, we'll take it elsewhere for a more peaceful experience.
