Update from Tribeca:
PTA Moms' night out at Takahachi,145 Duane Street, NYC 10013:
What we ordered:
Edamame (soy beans)
Yin-yen Nasu (grilled eggplant)
Rock Shrimp tempura
Cold Mountain (tuna, avocado & asparagus maki)
and Apollo 13 (shrimp tempura, cucumber, lettuce and avocado maki).
Our friend said: "It was way too much food, but I wanted to sample everything my friend likes. The spicy mayo sauce they served with the Rock Shrimp Cold Mountain and Apollo 13 had some yummy heat. I ate at Nobu last Halloween (FYI, easy to get a reservation on Oct. 31st!) and the rock shrimp tempura at Takahachi compares very favorably to Nobu's famous dish."
