    this one goes out to one of the founders of archinect. i heard from a good friend who knows you well that you MUST eat the eel sushi last. i know this, but i just wanted to spread the word, because it is a dessert sushi, and maybe prior to that, to eat the flying fish roe sushi which also has a sweet tang to it.

    that's all. hello, goodbye.

      I'm curious: is there a culinary order of operation regarding when you eat the jumbo clam or abalone sushi?

      oh. i must be too western. i eat sashimi (no rice, thank you) and always save the most refreshing for last, usually white fish...

      hm.. that might be a western thing- but it could be american western or euro-centric, as the french eat salad towards the end of the meal. it's also a western trend to do low-carb, which is why i see, (unless you have a food allergy) you are eating only sashimi. i personally like a balance between rice and fish.

      i do believe there must exist out there, a 'sushi gradient' in terms of etiquette and order, + just had a discussion about this over sake at sakagura, a great little spot in midtown. an alternative possibility to a linear gradient would be a 'sushi/sashimi field' where the rules of eating are more spatial and relational.

      if anyone out there knows of how to acquire information on the sushi gradient/field, do post.

      Definately a discussion to be held over a meal and some (warm) sake. Now I'm hungry - thanks!!
