About 10 months ago, the highly rated Japanese restaurant, Kaygetsu in Menlo Park, closed its doors.  Mitsunobu reopened in its place, and it also kept its executive chef.  Since I never dined at the original restaurant, I can't really compare the two.  However, I had a nice meal at Mitsunobu recently, and while not everything was a hit, it was quite good overall.  I would recommend this place, as the food was good, and my experience was a pleasant one.

I haven't the energy to write more, so I will let the following pictures do the talking.
