After a slight hiccup in our reservation we had an amazing Valentine's dinner. We arrived on time and were seated right away. When we ordered the Omakase we were told the only one available would be the valentine's special. We were completely frustrated by this. When we made our reservation we explained we were switching from Pabu because they were only doing a special menu. We were assured the Omakase would be available. My husband also called to confirm this information on Valentine's day before we arrived. Our waitress went above and beyond and spoke with the manager twice and finally the restaurant agreed to make us the 9 course Omakase.
Now on to the amazing! I loved all of the special touches for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was strewn with rose petals and balloons. Also to finish our meal we were given a red rose, cookies, and chocolates to bring home.
To start our dinner we ordered a fruity Sake. The 9 dishes we were given were beautifully presented, bold in flavor, perfectly cooked, and very memorable. During our meal we enjoyed smoked oysters, sashimi, seabass, soup, escargot, cod, sushi, wagyu beef, and dessert. On both of our visits we especially enjoyed dishes prepared with a broth. The rich flavors Oishii creates are incredible. The restaurant is able to accommodate my dairy allergy. However, during this visit I was brought dishes that included dairy in them twice. Luckily during the description of the dishes they error was caught.
When we travel we often choose restaurants with an Omakase menu. In the past we have tried O Ya, Zuma, Morimoto, and Nobu. Oishii is by far superior to our recent Omakase at Nobu and is close to being our favorite. We are so happy to have this restaurant in Boston. I can't wait for visit number 3!
