So yesterday was Easter here in the US.
Normally, we celebrate with the rest of my wife’s family, but this time we decided instead to do it on our own.
We were going to Mass and decided to go out to eat afterward.
Esedia had a couple of suggestions. One was to go to Pantanal (our local Rodizio) and the other one was a sushi bar.
I suggested that the sushi bar was a better choice, as I thought the other place was going to be more crowded with the holiday.
We went to Mass at 12:30 PM and left the house at 1:30 PM. We had to pick up Gilberto that had just come out of work.
We then drove to Westport, CT to Matsu Sushi.
A really nice place. Lovely atmosphere with about ten tables on the inside and a few tables for couples on the outside.
Like many sushi bars, you have an area where they prepare the sushi up front and a kitchen in the back where they cook other more traditional dishes and hibachi.
We ordered some drinks. Large Hot Sake for me, and Beer (Kirin Ichiban) for Gilberto. Esedia and the boys had soda and water.
We had sake before, but this one was at the right temperature and not bitter like in other restaurants.
We then placed our orders. Esedia and Carlos went for the Hibachi (Chicken and Steak, each) and Gilberto, Gaby and me decided on the Bento Box. Steak for me. I also replaced the soup for Vegetable Tempura.
The decoration is pretty simple and inviting. The open space and the garage style windows make the space look bigger than it really is. Plenty of light to take some pictures.
Our meals came with Soup and Salad for starters. Miso or Clear soup depending if the meal was Bento or Hibachi.
Both were delicious and better than what we had before.
My dinner Bento box was enormous!! Four pieces of Sashimi, rice, steak, two shrimp dumplings and the vegetable tempura. I almost couldn’t finish it.
The sushi was very fresh and delightful. Esedia and Carlos gave me a taste of the Hibachi and it was also very flavorful.
The restaurant has many lunch choices and the prices are extremely affordable. Definitely a great place to have sushi, Bento Boxes, and Hibachi.
All in all, we had a great Easter. A little unorthodox but nonetheless a great meal.
Highly recommend Matsu Sushi.
