It was our final day in Seattle and I made a reservation at Wataru that night. I was excited to indulge in an intimate omakase experience with Chef Kotaro Kumita.
There are only two seatings nightly at 5:30pm and 7:45pm. Seating at the sushi bar is limited so be sure to make a reservation as soon as you can. Shortly after being shown to our seats, I ordered a bottle of sake and picked out my cute sake cup.
Then it was an amazing show put on my Chef Kumita. Watching him prepare every dish and piece of nigiri behind the six-seat sushi bar was quite a sight.
After a trio of small bites and a delicious oyster, it was all about the Edomae-style sushi. The fish was absolutely divine.
After a couple incredible pieces of nigiri, I was convinced that this was the best sushi spot in town and totally understood why people try so hard for a coveted bar seat months in advance.
Wow…just wow. What way to spend my final night in Seattle – an amazing, intimate omakase created by Chef Kumita with fellow sushi addicts. Thank you, Chef Kumita!
