    You wouldn't expect it, but Morimoto has a happy hour in the upstairs lounge from 5-7pm with drink & food specials mostly under $10.

    Modernist Iron Chef wizardry may dazzle the tourists, but it's the straight-up sushi and sashimi that really steals the show. Scallop, amberjack and fresh water eel are the must-haves.

    The 10 hour pork belly is absolutely incredible, as is the yuzu meringue tart. Yuzu meringue is a oerfectly light and citrus-y dessert for a hot, muggy day.

    The $80 Omakase is a ripoff as the dishes are uneven at best. Sushi rice was dry, sushi was OK at best. Disappointing.

    One of the great places in Philadelphia for pristine raw fish and clever composed dishes. Hope to God that the foie gras chawan mushi, maguro niçoise, and ten-hour pork "kakuni" make an appearance.
