Yen Sushi & Sake Bar
Each of Yen's Sushi & Sake Bar's five locations has its own feel. The Long Beach restaurant, with its concrete color scheme and mismatched wooden chairs, seems like some kind of industrial antique shop, whereas the downtown Los Angeles spot has the clean white look of a crayon factory that's good at avoiding accidents. But no matter the surroundings, all eyes are soon on the restaurant's fresh rolls, sashimi, and entrees. Again each location's menu differs, but in Long Beach specialties such as grilled jumbo shrimp with garlic salt or blue-crab hand-rolls mingle with charbroiled teriyaki salmon steak, and cuts of Spanish mackerel, fatty tuna, and yellowtail belly arrive on stark white plates.
The crispy rice/spicy tuna was divine, as was everything else on the menu--the flavors are subtle and delicious and totally worth the visit.Nicole K., Yelp, 10/4/12
The restaurant atmosphere was cool, what with the friendly sushi men and casual crowd.Nicole C., Yelp, 1/18/13
