Best Japanese Restaurant - 2005
Readers' Choice: Domo
There are Japanese restaurants in town that do great sushi, excellent yakitori, fine gyoza, wonderful ramen. But only at Domo do the disparate elements of Japanese cuisine come together in one perfect, country-style restaurant. And only at Domo could you enjoy this cuisine in such a zen-like setting, with beautiful service, tree-stump seats, a charmingly understated dining room and -- for those in real need of unruffled tranquility -- a Japanese meditation garden in the back. There's also an Aikido dojo and Japanese cultural center and museum that you're encouraged to visit while your meal is being prepared. But the wonderful farmhouse-style food, served with half a dozen exotic sides, is the real attraction at Domo.
