At Sushi Robata, owner Hiroyoshi Mori and several other native Japanese chefs present a menu that balances a diverse selection of dishes. Diners can start with robata—Japanese-style grilled appetizers such as sea scallops, beef tongue, and sake-infused cod—before moving to entrees of teriyaki chicken and shrimp tempura. A separate menu governs the sushi bar, where patrons sitting at the counter can look on as the chefs plate nearly 90 types of sashimi or build a New Zealand roll with green mussels, smelt roe, and onion. Sushi Robata practices izakaya-style dining, a casual approach in which groups are encouraged to share dishes and chairs. Despite the low-key vibe, the restaurant is rather elegant: pot lights glow off the open, stainless-steel kitchen, and in the dining room, a checkerboard installation and a tree mural line spaces furnished with wooden tables and backless banquettes.

As soon as couples enter Banana Leaf, wine-bottle displays establish a romantic vibe, which continues at linen-dressed tables that sit beneath floral chandeliers. Get adventurous with dishes such as whole deep-fried red snapper or spicy pasta suki-yaki, a tangle of spaghetti-style noodles, egg, choice of protein, and a Cajun-Asian sauce. Stick around for the complimentary verrine.

If it's rolled up in rice, seared on an open flame, or nestled into a bento box, you can find it at Arfi Sushi & Hibachi Express.?Here, the express part of the restaurant's name comes from guests saving time by ordering at the counter instead of trying to track down a server. An added benefit of ordering this way is that diners can see the sushi chefs prepare intricate rolls up close.

In addition to traditional rolls, the chefs prepare tempura- and mayo-decorated nouveau rolls and top small beds of rice with slices of fresh salmon and tuna. Rice is also festooned with hibachi-charred steak, chicken, shrimp, or salmon, which can also land in a bento box to co-star with california rolls and tempura vegetables that were plucked out of a deep-fried garden.
