I learned that 美味しい means delicious (I think we all pick that one up fairly early in our journey toward mastering Japanese!), but then when studying Bunpro grammar, they gave as an example 美味しいレストランに行いく, “to go to a delicious restaurant,” and it surprised me.
My understanding has been that Japanese is unusually logical, more so than English. It’s certainly not the restaurant that’s delicious—nobody consumes a restaurant, although 怪獣 are fond of knocking them down—it’s the food they serve that’s delicious.
So does 美味しい really mean delicious, or does it mean something like able-to-please-fussy-gourmands (which could be true both for a restaurant or a dish), or am I overthinking? (Which I often/always do).
I just have trouble imagining saying “I went to a delicious restaurant” even in English, so saying it in Japanese really disconcerted me!
