Fed Man Walks Into Afin

afin.jpgMike "Fed Man Walking" Sutter was inspired by a screening of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the film about three-Michelin-star Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo, to visit Afin, a Japanese tapas restaurant on North Lamar. We don't want to ruin the surprise, but, sigh: Afin turns out to be not as good as Sukiyabashi Jiro. Though the space itself was "shadowy like a storage room," and the music "some awful foreign and domestic pop mash-up," and oh yes, the sushi bar was "one of the least visually appealing I’ve seen," Sutter still seems not displeased by the $55 six-course omakase. He likes the "delicious" jack mackerel fishbone sculpture and the sea urchin, wherein he "didn’t catch any flavors out of place." [FedManWalking]
