Faceless Samurai might be a new restaurant, but the chefs behind it hew closely to the old ways. Under chocolate-colored drapery, diners kneel around low tables for old-fashioned sushi maki and classic Thai curries. This respect for centuries of culinary tradition doesn't mean that these chefs aren't open to new ideas. Their Mexican roll mixes shrimp tempura and avocado, and Steve's roll turns up the South-of-the-Border flavor with the addition of jalapeno and cilantro. Besides sushi, the Japanese side of the menu features entrees that might be less familiar to American diners, such as the okonomiyaki—sometimes called the "Japanese pizza," the "Japanese omelet," or "Howard," if his mom is around—and the lightly seared tuna tataki.
