Last night, Seito Sushi celebrated their 15th anniversary with an omakase dinner at their Baldwin Park locale. Some of you will remember the original Seito in Winter Park Village, which opened in 2000, but what we were served last night hardly resembled the fare served at the original 15 years ago. A nine-course omakase ("chef's choice") menu served up by chef Austin Boyd did owners Jason and Sue Chin proud. I think we all felt privileged to be a part of it. Happy 15th anniversary, Seito Sushi! Here's to 15 more.
