Fujiya House's chefs display their dedication to the art of Japanese cuisine by crafting most of their menu directly in front of diners. Hibachi grills fill most of the brightly lit dining room, where planters of bamboo add small splashes of color to the neutral-toned walls. As the chefs dexterously slide cuts of filet mignon, chicken, or lobster across the grill tops, shining metal range hoods vacuum up smoke and stray rainclouds hovering over diners' heads. Nearby sushi chefs also wrap california rolls and thinly sliced pieces of nigiri.
Japanese, Chinese, and Thai cuisines fuse together in Miso Asian Grill & Sushi Bar’s dishes. Its chefs hand roll sushi and prep entrees that are free of additives and preservatives and loaded with hand-cut seasonal vegetables. They slather eggplant with chili-garlic sauce and smother whole fried red snapper in red curry sauce before setting them to simmer atop the kitchen’s wok or grill. Elsewhere, chefs manning the sushi bar craft abundant hand and classic rolls alongside 20 specialty rolls, such as the spicy Crab Killer, which is served with a detailed description of the wanted crustacean’s likeness. Each of the chef’s creations can be served to waiting patrons in Miso’s contemporary, art-adorned dining room or on its outdoor patio, which is nestled beside a tranquil pond.
Here's a tip when visiting Tokyo Sushi: try to grab a seat right at the sushi bar. That's where diners can view the chefs up close and marvel as their skilled hands slice thin sashimi and roll sushi in dozens of combinations. The sushi chefs focus on simplicity and freshness; they rely on in-season ingredients and then let the flavors speak for themselves. Head Chef Huang is the driving force behind this philosophy, and he carries on the traditions he first learned while studying alongside a veteran sushi master.
Beyond the sushi bar, Chef Huang and his kitchen staff grill lobster, pork, and other meats. These proteins form the base of traditional entrees or bento boxes, which, if stacked, would make the most delicious play fort in the world. Tokyo Sushi's drinks aren't an afterthought, either; its sake and beer is imported straight from Japan.
Sushi-O skillfully blends diverse flavors in its Asian fusion cuisine, from the creative sushi it's named after to hearty cooked dishes such as citrus-teriyaki steak. Malaysian sambal paste flavors fried rice, and black-pepper sauce can adorn udon noodles or an 8-ounce filet mignon. Blends of curry lend spice to chicken and seafood dishes. The sushi chefs approach their work with an artistic eye, arranging maki rolls into whimsical shapes such as hearts, scorpions, and President Millard Fillmore. Each meal can be accompanied by drinks such as sake, Japanese beers, and American microbrews.
The chefs at Chopstix top their artistic maki, sashimi, and hand rolls with vibrant caviar and crunchy tempura flakes, entertaining guests who dine at the sleek, black sushi bar. Behind the kitchen's doors, chefs quickly sauté meats and seafood on their hot hibachi grill or on the stove, the enticing aromas of tangy teriyakis and saucy curries wafting to customers as a prelude to arriving meals. In fairer weather, diners may choose to sit outside on the restaurant's patio or remain inside at large banquettes with plenty of room for leg stretching.
Stationed behind their hibachi grills, the chefs at Shogun Japanese Steakhouse flip morsels of chicken, steak, and lobster tails with choreographed flair as diners cheer them on with boisterous applause or polite chopstick golf claps. Cool and fresh, the menu's sushi and sashimi offerings counter those items hot off the grill and include pieces of octopus, sweet-potato hand rolls, and the special dragon roll. Japanese ice cream, cheesecake, and tempura-fried banana can be counted amongst the meal finishers.
