Food Porn: Japonessa

"The first time anyone mentioned Japonessa to me, they said it was a Japanese/Italian fusion restaurant, and I was excited. Of all the ways to bend history and geography to one's own sick whims, a mashup of Japanese and Italianâ€"two food cultures which have neither touched nor even looked at each other sweetly across a crowded roomâ€"had to be the wildest potential culinary screw-job ever. Spaghetti and maguro balls. Veal piccata udon. Mochi tiramisu. I could not wait to go."

Read Jason Sheehan's full review of Japonessa and then gorge on some food porn.
