Though Fushimi Modern Japanese Cuisine & Lounge's menu and daily specials board boast French-inspired fusion food, its sushi is deeply rooted in tradition–and this combination has earned its dishes Zagat ratings and a Michelin recommendation. Chefs may reinterpret the presentation of Japanese staples—such as the tuna sashimi, which they set on broad leaves next to bean-sprout-entangled roe—but they still stay true to traditional flavors. By contrast, cooked fusion entrees tend to incorporate the unconventional, such as the tuna burger with spicy aioli, available on the weekend brunch menu, and the mushroom risotto made with black rice (a dish praised by New York Magazine in their critics' pick review.)

At all locations, the decor also melds old and new. At the bar at the Staten Island location, crimson light filters through a canopy of metallic foliage, casting a moody aura across Buddhist statuettes imported from Asia. The neon-lit Williamsburg location has a sleeker feel, its booths nestled in large circular openings that bring to mind subway tunnels or the oversized portholes of Paul Bunyan's mythical submarine. In Bay Ridge, the stateliness of traditional chandeliers contrasts with the bold colors of wall-sized photographs.

Since he was a child in the Ukraine, chef Dmitry Rodov has appreciated the art of cooking. Like his pastry-chef father, he spent some time as a limousine driver once he reached the United States, but as soon as he’d saved up enough money, Dmitry returned to his true passion.

As a classically trained chef, Dmitry has great respect for French cooking methods, and he fuses French traditions with Japanese, Russian, and Mediterranean techniques. The result: Riviera Grill & Sushi Restaurant, where the menu’s foie gras feels just as at home as plates of raw oysters, Kobe mini sliders still hot from the shrink ray, and signature sushi rolls dreamt up by Dmitry himself. If the restaurant’s one-of-a-kind cultural fusion doesn’t say enough about its gourmet take on global favorites, a quick perusal of its online gallery proves Riviera’s uniqueness with colorful, sculptural arrangements of food.

Equally versed in the cuisines of China and Japan, the chefs at China Tokyo Restaurant stir-fry aromatic platefuls of diced vegetables and tender meats as well as deftly assemble orders of fresh sushi. Incorporating either white or brown rice, they forge Chinese entrees by sautéing handfuls of ingredients—including bok choy, roasted pork, and bamboo—beneath a number of sweet, savory, and fiery sauces. In addition to bundling traditional sushi rolls, the chefs can inject a modern twist by layering arugula, sliced strawberries, or red-curry mayonnaise alongside the delicately sliced seafood.

Cylindrical pendant lights dangle from the dining room's ceilings and cast a gentle glow across the dark floors and walls of exposed brick. Against one of these walls, a line of high-backed booths seats guests beneath a display of ceramic vases whose blue designs are actually the fingerprints of baby smurfs.

The soft glow of pendant lamps illuminates exposed-brick walls and rustic wood tables inside Kushibar, where diners share tapas and clink glasses of sake. Named for kushiyaki, the Japanese word for skewers, Kushibar specializes in grilled lineups of beef short ribs, quail, and other sumptuous meats and veggies. Chefs fortify these skewers with small plates doused in rich sauces, from the pan-fried scallops' buttery dressing to the sautéed mussels' spicy wasabi, which delivers a kick as zesty as a spice rack strapped to a chorus line. From behind two different bars, chefs roll together eel, cucumber, and caviar, and slice fresh sashimi while servers pour pints of imported beer and hot and cold sake. Patrons can sip their libations from the vantage point of a bright red bar stool, or tote drinks to the basement for karaoke sessions or private parties.

Tradition takes an experimental turn at Ngi Japanese Fusion, where chefs have set Japanese staples alongside jicama, ravioli, chowder, brandy butter sauce, crab bisque, and other creative fixings. Using fresh, organic ingredients and seafood that's delivered daily, they turn out filets and curry pots and craft exotic maki rolls with sweet potato tempura, asparagus, avocado, salmon, shrimp, and crab. The restaurant's contemporary space beautifully complements the chef's efforts—slick white seating, dark wood tables, a tiled bar glowing with neon blue lights, and glimmering silver tassels dangling between booths all give the décor a futuristic flare and diners a conversation starter as they sneak bites from other tables' plates.

An ocean of choices awaits diners at Bayridge Sushi. Lunchboxes composed of teriyaki or tempura meats provide an alternative to standard paper bags filled with jelly, and sushi and sashimi platters round out meals with soup and salad. Noon or night, dozens of rolls cover plates in neat slices of fresh salmon or avocado and cucumber. More adventurous diners can seek out specialty rolls, including the house tempura roll with lightly fried salmon, eel, and seaweed and the Phoenix roll filled with shrimp and banana.
