  • Kevin Sbraga loves this place! -Kevin Sbraga, Top Chef
  • Morimoto, from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, serves authentic Japanese sushi and the freshest seafood dishes.
  • Get the Omakase which means roughly, "In the chef's hands". Went there twice before I was a vegetarian and they were both amazingly inventive dinners. Most interesting dish was the jalapeno sorbet.
  • New fall cocktail menu launching today including this Kobacha cocktail: roasted kabocha infused bourbon, angostura bitters, ginger beer lime, garnished with bourbon roasted kabocha & bamboo leaf
  • 5 star worthy all around- the decor, food, and service were amazing!
  • Don't miss the hamachi tartare, a molded cylinder of yellowtail and crispy shallots served with a Japanese mountain peach.
  • Score the Iron Chefs freshest catches at the back-of-the-house sushi bar.
  • At the far end of Iron Chef Morimoto's sushi stronghold is a sushi bar where you can watch the culinary wizards make rolls and maki.
  • Enjoy our contemporary menu that mixes traditional Japanese ingredients with classic Western preparations. Daring diners can put themselves in the chef's hands and partake in the tasting menu.
  • Even if you don't like tofu, the yosedofu is amazing. I even got my dad to take seconds and he's usually a pure meat eater!
  • Take advantage of the under-the-radar weekday happy hour in the lounge. Try a selection of maki for $6, apps for $7 and select cocktails, beers (including Morimoto's Rogue beers) and wines for $6.
  • Try the Tuna Pizza, Angry Chicken or Braised Cod. Then try cooking Morimoto's recipe for the dish on KeepRecipes! You'll be donating to the American Red Cross's fund for Tsunami & Earthquake Relief.
  • LOVE this restaurant in Philly!
  • Excellent sushi in downtown Philadelphia - owned by the same guy who opened Wasabi in Delhi
  • Excellent fresh "mix"
  • great affordable, quick lunch. get the sushi combination (and carpaccio)
  • They have these weird lamps planted in the middle of the tables ...
  • Rock shrimp tempura is orgasmic... Blends in with the phallic lights ;-)
  • Just go and experience Morimoto!
  • This place is awesome. Any appetizer is delicious. Rock shrimp, duck duck duck, Kobe filet, all great entrees. The asparagus side is also delicious.
