Clad in his kitchen whites and armed with razor-sharp cutlery, the chef slices a slab of bright-red tuna into thick, even pieces with a nonchalant flick of his wrist. Curious customers have stopped at the sushi bar to marvel at his precision, but he does not look up from his task until each slice has been nestled atop a bed of perfectly formed rice. He begins the cycle of chopping and arranging again, continuing until all diners' appetites have been sated. So passes a typical day at Tiger Sushi 2, where chefs and servers stock tables with platefuls of fresh, innovative Japanese and Asian fusion food. Away from the dining room, chefs manning the kitchen oversee the assembly of dishes inspired by recipes from around the globe, from thai noodle dishes and asian fish tacos to japanese gyoza dumplings. The culinary team crafts each meal from ingredients such as cooked surf clam, super white tuna, and new york strip steak, enlivening dishes with fresh additions such as lime-juice glaze, mint leaves, and minced ginger. An outdoor patio grants guests a chance to engage in alfresco dining, and its dog-friendly policy gives hounds and humans trapped in their pets’ bodies the opportunity to go out on the town.
There’s plenty to like about Tiger Sushi. It’s as stylish as a nightclub, with glassy walls and an undulating bar.Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, Minnesota Monthly>/i>, 02/09
