Japonais Bistro - 11806 Jasper Avenue - Edmonton AB
After a night of eating, I would say I was pretty happy with the meal here. The food is definitely on the expensive side - our bill came out to $90 pre tip for two people, but the fish is fresh and the presentation is there. If you're not a piglet like me, you may see yourself spending a bit less, and still getting to try a variety of items on the menu. I did notice they will be offering Omakase, which is a chef chosen tasting menu for $75/person with 24hrs of advanced notice. It'll definitely be an adventurous dining experience if they're successful in the execution. After our meal, a server came over for a quick chat for feedback on the menu, as they are doing the final tweaks on the dishes before the grand opening. This restaurant is so receptive to feedback, and I love how open they are to pleasing customers. And for the next little while, they're offering 10% off your bill to celebrate their arrival to the city. Seeing as the grand opening for Japonais Bistro is tomorrow, I feel like they're going to do well. With so much hype around the restaurant, make sure to make a reservation before heading down!
