We've all heard about fugu, the pufferfish that is prized in Japan and, if butchered incorrectly, is deadly. (You have to avoid certain organs.) It's very exciting for a certain kind of person to eat fugu, then, especially because it's so rare in the U.S. Chaya's downtown location has a monthly omakase dinner, and this edition features fugu: the fish is the star of four of the six dishes served. The restaurant has joined the Fugu Society of the United States, making it one of the few places that can served it — but no one there can actually butcher it. The one person in this country allowed to do so by the FDA is in New York. Little wonder why it's such an expensive dinner.
