     Founded in 1988, Dai-Kichi is the oldest established Japanese Cuisine Restaurant in the historically cultural town of Montclair, New Jersey. For thirty one years, Dai-Kichi has been revered by the local crowd as a delectable destination for Japanese cuisine. In recent news, Dai-Kichi has received multiple accolades and impressive reviews from well known restaurant rating agencies. For three years, beginning in 2009, Dai-Kichi has consecutively won a Best of Essex “Reader’s Choice Award.” Furthermore, the International Restaurant Rating agency, “Zagat,” has recently written that “’High quality’” sushi and ‘unique’ rolls make this Upper Montclair Japanese restaurant a “local favorite.'”   BYOB
