<i>(By Michael Tierney. Republished with permission from <a>G3 Illustrated)</a></i>

I grew up in a meat 'n' potatoes family. We never ate rice, not even Rice-a-Roni. Rice, we assumed, was reserved for rich families and exotic cultures. Perhaps this explains my fascination with Japanese food ... the rice, the chopsticks ... it seems so highbrow. So with my love for meat and potatoes, and a longing for things lush and exotic, I recently dined at <b>Maido</b> on Frankfort Avenue in Clifton.

Maido is an intimate space punctuated with bold art work that sets the stage and a background sound of Japanese pop music that sets the mood: catchy and kitschy. The menu is quite extensive, overflowing with appetizers, sushi and small plates; but don't be intimidated. The friendly, knowledgeable staff will walk you through each delicious option.

Full reports in G3 Illustrated and on LouisvilleHotBytes.
