The success of the dinner depends as much
upon the company as the cook.

Nick has been talking forever about wanting to go to a Japanese steakhouse. There was in Florida that we loved, Tokyo Bay, and haven't been to one since moving here to St. Louis. Nick heard of a good one, Oishi in Chesterfield Valley, from a coworker and was dying to go but we need some friends to join us! Not too much fun to go by ourselves.

So on Saturday night, Heidi and Dan were toddler-free and up for dinner too! It was delish, we stuffed ourselves and enjoyed the different atmosphere (including catching tossed food from the chef in our mouth! I missed.). Nice just to try something different than a regular restaurant.

Nick's excited!

Me and Heidi.

Yum - look at that steak!

Onion volcano, that's the best part!

Mmmm. I haven't been to the steakhouse part yet, but Oishi's sushi is amazing. Now I want to check out a Japanese steakhouse again.

I love Japanese restaurants! We had one in my college town and we went often. Great memories!

Yummay! I haven't been to Oishi but it looks exactly like the other Japanese place we go to on Olive. They also do the flying shrimp and the onion volcano. The amount of food they serve is ridic! And so yummy. Glad you guys got to have a good time! Thanks for visiting me in the hosp too, my violet is blooming like crazy!

I love mixing it up now and then. Otherwise it's "Red Robin or Chili's?" Boring! Glad you were able to go do something a little different! Fun!

I tried like crazy to get my hubby to go there, but he is way too boring for that. Looks delish!!
