Inventive Japanese AppreciatedIf you love Japanese food but are in the market for inventive Japanese, you should consider Family Recipe. "Inventive Japanese" means their take on how to serve lamb sausage to what some would typically expect from a traditional soborodon. While not every dish hit the mark for me, I appreciated every single one for the chef's effort to introduce something better than the same old favorites.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJapanese food with a twistWe went to Family Recipe for Mother's Day Brunch and had an enjoyable experience overall.

There's nothing quite like getting to taste things that you wouldn't have even thought of making. Fresh, vibrant, plenty of "comfort" food style stuff, but, also yummy clean lighter fare, though with plenty of flavor. Sake cocktails hit the spot.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the tapas/appetizers.Get the tapas/appetizers.
