Step 3, bringing new meaning to the words "two step" (with apologies to Douglas Adams): Edamame. So far, so good. We can totally handle this.
Step 6a: Bonanza! At right, the highly authentic West Village roll. At left, sushi! Center, slabs of delight. To the victor go the spoils (i.e. salmon), and to Yael goes the tuna.
Step 6b: Uh oh, we forgot the main course is still to come. Panic mode! Solution: Leave everything white. (We are duly--and in a decidely un-Nipponese manner--berated for not eating the white tuna.)
Step 7: Seafood teriyaki (shrimp, salmon, and crab, oh my!). The alleged point of this meal is now beside the point. But we still find room. Because we're professionals.
See Steps 2-7 for reasons why we skipped Step 8: Tempura ice cream. (Lies! We skipped it because we had it last time and it wasn't that good.)
