The gustatory artisans at Ono's Café populate their menu of Asian-fusion cuisine with a bounty of fresh ingredients that evoke the flavors of California and the distant Pacific Rim. Tables strain under the heft of such entrees as the macadamia-crusted salmon, which ladles a regal banana sauce atop grilled king salmon before showering the plate with an aromatic confetti of black thai rice and asian slaw ($17). Bearing a mosaic of temporary grill-mark tattoos, the kalbi short ribs ($14) waft their flame-kissed aromas across the dining room, and tempura-battered shrimp and vegetables snuggle alongside a salad with miso-raspberry vinaigrette to create the tempura mix ($11). Ono's Café proffers an array of delicate sushi delights, including assorted hand rolls ($4+) as well as a signature house roll, which gives softshell crab and cucumber a great big rice hug before layering albacore tuna, avocado, and a fully paid mortgage atop the creation. Visitors considering a drink can turn to Ono's beverage menu, which comprises beer, cocktails, sake, wine, and multifarious hot and cold options for those who prefer nonalcoholic swallowing.
