The Boston Globe called Super Fusion “A Flash of the Unexpected” for a reason. While the menu doesn't overlook typical sushi choices, the chefs' real creativity shines through in such specialty rolls as dragon maki with sweet potato and eel or sake papaya maki with fried papaya and cream cheese. Among the more than 100 dishes, there is also a menu section devoted to entirely to salmon, which is crusted with king crab, grilled with black Tobiko, or wrapped in rice paper with fresh papaya, asparagus, and cucumber. To wash down the creative eats, the restaurant offers beer, wine, and sake, while those who abstain can opt for green tea or simply request that their soup be served with a straw.
Mode Spa's staff focuses its skills in three areas, rendering massages, skincare treatments, and nail services.

Kamiza Sushi's chefs have dreamt up more than 50 creative maki rolls to fill an expansive menu of fresh seafood and hot Japanese cuisine. In the kitchen, nimble hands sprinkle multicolored roe atop a Color Mountain maki plump with shrimp tempura and king crab ($13.95), and bundle sweet potato and cream cheese to create a Fire maki that showcases spicy crab and roe baked with cheese ($9.25). Chopsticks forage for spicy lobster morsels in a salad decked with apple, avocado, and cucumber ($9.99) before wandering onto other tables to gather rolls for their growing stockpile. Dining partners can pick favorites from sashimi deluxe platters ($27.95), with one tasting slivers of king salmon, super white tuna, and whitefish as the other nibbles shrimp tempura or tuna maki and dunks donuts hidden inside coat pockets into bowls of miso soup. Lunch specials ($9.99–$13.99) pair soup and salad with hearty dishes, such as soba-noodle soup or teriyaki beef, to lure diners at midday.
For more than 15 years, Dragon Star has lit up the Chinese food scene in Brookline. The staff has built an extensive menu with more than 160 selections, including chop suey, eggplant with oyster sauce, beef in black-bean sauce, and a quintet of egg foo youngs. But starring among their many traditional dishes are Dragon Star’s specialties. Slices of duck served Mandarin-style are sautéed with pea pods, water chesnuts, and bamboo, and the flavors in the Happy Family dish—jumbo shrimp, chicken, scallops, beef, and pork—work together so harmoniously they often burst into renditions of “The Brady Bunch.” Regardless of the lunch or dinner entrée chosen, guests can rest assured that the staff has prepared it as healthily as possible: they use fresh and natural ingredients and constantly seek out new cooking methods to get the most from their nutritional content.
Five decades ago, Kirio Pantelis wheeled a wooden cart around Kalamata, Greece, peddling syrupy sweets to locals. Today, his son and daughter-in-law oversee the American patisserie and café that evolved from these humble roots, nestled in both Brookline and Brighton. The bakery pays homage to its heritage with walnut-studded cakes and tarts that echo back to communal baking in wood-burning Greek ovens, though the shop draws from all over Europe for luxurious ingredients such as chocolate genoise, poached Turkish apricots, and Belgian cocoa. Puffed éclairs, petits fours, and fruit tartlets evoke the patisseries of Paris, and the bakery’s from-scratch gelato transports tasters to Italy without the hassle of concentrating hard enough to teleport.
Along with these sugary delicacies, the Brighton location also dishes up savory, Mediterranean-inspired fare at a café with marble tabletops and loft ceilings. Diners here fork into cold poached salmon, munch on paninis layered with gruyere or house orange-scented sausage, and savor cold sandwiches filled with roasted pancetta.
