Ricenroll is many things, but the Bellevue restaurant can best be summed up in three words: quick, fresh, and healthy. Oh, and delicious. Here, chefs slice fish to create the inventive rolls that headline the menu, but sushi is only one part of the equation. Other popular dishes include hearty bowls filled with tofu, curried veggies, and teriyaki salmon. And no meal is complete without a bubble tea blended with real fruit and dotted with chewy tapioca balls.

It's nice watching someone else make dinner for a change?especially when the meal prep becomes a full-on show. At Tokyo Steakhouse, chefs bring their culinary skills tableside to entertain diners with flaming onion volcanoes and knife juggling. They can hand-wrap cucumber, green onion, and masago into spicy-tuna sushi rolls, and grill steak, chicken, and fresh vegetables for teppanyaki dishes. Accompany your meal with a specialty cocktail such as the Banzai, which is a mixture of tropical fruit juices, rum, and a splash of almond, and finish the meal on a sweet note with mochi ice cream.
