Family style versus individual

More photo talent from Micah Joel.

Some dishes lend themselves to individual servings like this ankimo or monkfish liver, with ponzu, momiji oroshi, and green onions.

Other dishes, lend themselves to family style like this Hokkaido scallop with cumin foam over Japanese cucumber.

The net of this is, that for right now, I will default to family style dishes if in doubt for the dinner parties because I feel it's more appropriate for the setting. At least family style eating was the way I was raised, going out to restaurants.
