Ise: Power Lunch

If you work at Deutsche- you lunch at Ise- at least once a week. Clad in power suits and knowing glances, this mock bankers club boasts real-deal Japanese sushi with extremely efficient service. Our pretty server thoughtfully read us each special, which were handwritten in Japanese.

We decided to share the bacon wrapped scallops for our starter and each have a seared tuna salad. The scallops were massive and quite plump and well-matched to the salty bacon. I struggled to take a piece down in one bite (gracefully). The tuna came fresh, flavorful and spiked with ginger dressing. Though a light and healthy meal, I was quite content.

Next week? Tomorrow?
