Riding my bicycle across Vietnam
Recently, my family and I travelled to the Ginko Restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. Owned by Dante Boccuzzi, a landmark Cleveland chef, Ginko was no exception to his spate of excellence. Upon walking in, I was greeted by a cozy, chic ambiance that was truly indicative of a modern Japanese restaurant. I was particularly stunned by the "stained glass wall" that is featured on one side (the only kind of wall that I want)! The staff was professional and made good reccomendations throughout the meal. I ordered the ultimate Ginko Omakase Tasting Flight, a six course barage of succulent and profoundly evocative fish, with presentations ranging from mild to completely out-of-the-box, in a good way. I was schocked with the shear volume of food, I thought that it was an excellent value. All of the fish is of the highest quality, and it is reflected in the final product. My critiques are as follows: we were seated right by the door, which opens right into the frigid Cleveland air. Only the fish was supposed to be chilled... Also, it seemed that there was somewhat of a long wait time in between courses to which I am not sure to which side of the operation I can attribute. Overall, Ginko provided an absolutely stellar experience with a knowledgeable waitstaff, excellent décor, music (which is very important to me), and above all, fresh, elegantly presented fish. Thank you, Ginko!
