Review and Gallery: Otaru Nippon Collection Japanese Restaurant and Lounge

In this week's Observer, Merritt offers her take on Otaru Nippon Collection Japanese Restaurant and Lounge, the Dr. Fish-owned spot where she says the "lounge" vibe pretty quickly takes over.

As if to further emphasize the scene over the food, Otaru didn't want our photographer photographing the food (instead, these artists' renderings: hamachi, tako, unagi). After the jump, though, you'll find more shots of the decor, from our resident dining room light-chaser Sara Kerens.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
