Yellowtail menu is 100% copied from matsuhisa and Nobu. To be inspired by dishes is great, but to copy them word for word is stealing. I ate at Yellowtail recently.....Tuna pizza...Morimoto. Scallop Yuzu Lemon...Nobu.
The list goes on and on.
I would be ashamed if I was the chef to show my face in the dining room.

He may suck but hey if he gets the opportunity let him, this is a way to prove himself don't you think. Everyone copies someone and then makes it their own. Look at the good side you negative bastard.

Ayways, We thought yellowtail were better than nobu and morimoto.
