Do you love Japanese food?
So do Ben Bethel and Justin Lee. They're the owner and manager, respectively, of The Clarendon hotel, and right now they're working on a Japanese-inspired menu for C4, the hotel's new eatery and bar, which is slated to open in a couple of weeks.

It'll be a soft opening, with a pre-grand-opening menu (read: work-in-progress) for the first 30 days or so, says Bethel. Don Dunlap, formerly of Michael's at the Citadel, has been hired as the restaurant's general manager.
(In case you haven't heard, Camus never did reopen at The Clarendon, and is officially out of the picture.)
Sushi will definitely be on the menu at C4, and so will a few kinds of ramen. But everything else is up in the air, besides the concept: casual, affordable Japanese food.
These guys seem really open-minded, and Central Phoenix could use a lot more in the way of Japanese food, so tell me: What would you like to see more of?
