At Takuma Japanese Grill, master chefs dazzle diners with their teppanyaki talent, show off exotic sushi species, and dice up a menu of delectable Japanese fare intermingled with Latin, Southwest, and Caribbean flavors. Begin taste tours with crab-stuffed mushrooms ($4.95), tuna tartar ($8.95), or a baked avocado packed with crab, lobster, and a fiery sesame Japanese aioli ($7). To experience an exciting sushi adventure with a happy ending, eaters can select the Surprise Me Chef roll ($13.50)—which lets the chef choose on a whim what to roll up—or ask for nine other specialty rolls crafted with everything from strawberries and jalapeños to fried crawfish, cilantro, mango curry sauce, crab tempura, and more.

At Zushi Japanese Cuisine, experienced executive sushi chef Christopher Nemoto draws from traditional Japanese culinary traditions and augments them with modern flourishes. The result is a menu of inventive fresh sushi and Japanese classics. In the Houston Press’s list of top 10 sushi restaurants, the writer hailed both the restaurant's fresh fish and its "impeccably seasoned rice." Patrons can sample both in the eatery's delectable specialty rolls, including the Slammin Sammy—a mélange of imitation crab, cucumber, and cream cheese topped with smoked salmon and a citrus chili paste; or the Surf and Turf—finely sliced and grilled rib-eye steak with carrot, jalapeño, avocado, and sweet lobster. And as diners sup on the delicate pinks and oranges of tuna and salmon or the mottled grays of the countertop roll, they'll do so amid the chic ambiance of a sushi bar complete with booths, patio seating, and a cocktail bar equipped with flat-screen televisions.
