Just ate at Morimoto's tonight and have a question - what are these little green things on top of the fish?

They did not taste like anything at all...

They look like some variety of microgreens, maybe micro cilantro?

For me, I think pea shoots have a leaf shape that is different. But I don't know what these ones are.

Anyone know what store I would be able to find micro cilantro at?

Way off brother. Pea shoots are long with small leaves.

I think it's just scallions. In Japanese food we peel off the layers, stack them up and then cut into slivers. They can be straight or curly, depending on the direction you cut in. Usually we use "Tokyo Negi" which is the size between a scallion and a leek.

Micro cilantro and negi stacked and cut on a bias.
If you put the negi in ice water they usually curl up like that.
