The sure-handed chefs at Matsuya Sushi and Grill roll sushi into edible works of art and serve up hearty hibachi-fired entrees. Sixteen specialty rolls garnish plates with oceanic morsels and sauces drizzled in decorative lines and cursive transcriptions of Moby Dick. The Gold Dragon roll hoards shrimp tempura and salmon toppings in crisp seaweed coils ($8.25), and the Batman Bomb roll’s crab meat, fish eggs, and spicy mayo stow away in a deep-fried shell ($6.95). Guests can meld biospheres without funding underwater ranching ventures with the steak and shrimp ($15.95) or filet mignon and lobster ($22.95) hibachi entrees, which follow a soup and salad opener.
Matsuya Sushi & Grill
Behind Matsuya Sushi & Grill's sparkling L-shaped sushi counter, succulent fillets of tuna, salmon, and white fish succumb to chefs' keen knives before joining rice in bite-sized nigiri or tempting rolls. Collective gasps of admiration—usually reserved for the unveiling of a child’s macaroni self-portrait—leap from the lips of patrons as a chef taps and tosses shrimp, chicken, filet mignon, and lobster on the hibachi grill. Dressed in traditional Japanese robes and hats, waiters ferry plates decorated with carrot roses and artful splashes of sauce across the dining room, where screens and blond woods cultivate a peaceful atmosphere. Chefs reveal their sushi secrets every Sunday, bestowing their knowledge upon students during four-hour all-you-can-eat sushi-making classes.
