At last...KOTO Japanese Bistro has arrived! All of us in Richmond KY have been driving by the building in the Richmond Centre for months with our mouths watering just waiting for the grand opening.
About the name:
The koto (琴 or 箏) is a traditional Japanese stringed musical instrument derived from the Chinese guzheng. The koto is the national instrument of Japan.
I was honored to be one of the first guests to sample the food a day before the Grand Opening.
I headed over with a BFF(Dee) and was warmly welcomed by Charlie the General Manager and the staff including Tony the Bar Manager and Sasha. KOTO is owned by Mr. Dong, this is his second restaurant in KY. The first, Asian Royal is located in Georgetown KY.
The elegant decor is warm with lots of wood and tall back leather chairs. Attention to detail is evident everywhere. There is a large fountain at the front door and the bar is to the right.
One of the highlights and there are many would be that Richmond KY will finally have a first class sushi bar.
Equally amazing is the heated hibachi grill at the tables where food is prepared fresh.
The key ingredients are the meats, seafood, rice noodles and vegetables. The sauces are meant to enhance the flavor of foods, not over power them.
Enjoy a dining experience where each dish is prepared to order on smokeless hibachi tables and presented with artistic flair, right before you!
Our chef Joe at KOTO Japanese Bistro was trained I think in New York City and was one of the best entertainers I have seen at hibachi grills and I have eaten at quite a few all over the USA. His real home is in Laguna beach.
It was a blast watching him expertly prepare our food and serve it up.
Joe wouldn't miss a beat even if we commented on his style or to each other. Amazing concentration!
I think he super-sized our meals because there was so much food I had plenty for lunch today. It was good heated up again too!
My next dining adventure at KOTO will have to be the sushi bar. I have really missed having one close by. I'll have to do another review once I sample sushi.
It's nice to have so many new and good restaurants now in the Richmond Centre. Business is booming in Richmond KY and not a moment too soon!
