Restaurant Review

Japanese Kitchen

Hidden treasures await

Japanese Kitchen is doing something right. The well-established restaurant has barley a glimpse of street view—and from Americas Parkway, at that. Buried in a nondescript business cluster across Louisiana from ABQ Uptown, Japanese Kitchen is spread between two kitty-cornered buildings that are separated by a shaded plaza. Despite their near-invisibility, Japanese Kitchen’s sushi bar and steakhouse get quite busy—even rowdy at times, especially in the teppan corner.

Gruet Steakhouse Closed

The old Monte Vista Firehouse underwent major renovations before opening as Gruet Steakhouse in early 2005.

The old Monte Vista Firehouse underwent major renovations before opening as Gruet Steakhouse in early 2005.

After a five-year run, Nob Hill’s first truly upscale steakhouse went dark last week, according to a member of the owning family. He did go on record that the Gruet winery itself is up 8 percent in sales this year, so there’s no need to stockpile magnums of Champagne (or Pinot Noir ... Gruet’s is excellent, give it a try). Besides the restaurant’s excellent wine, steaks (adieu, petit filet!) and seafood, the wait staff at Gruet Steakhouse was consistently exceptional in a town known for spotty service. I’m very sad to see it go.
