From a distance, it looks like a scoop of pistachio ice cream or a very large lime. But up close, it's clear that the sphere's green skin is actually a layer of thinly sliced avocado, which conceals a savory lump of snow crab, eel, and sushi rice. A union of artistic presentation and fine ingredients, this dish—called the Green Apple—embodies the creative approach of Fusionarie Japanese Signature's chefs, who craft sushi delicacies from seafood delivered fresh daily. At their kitchen inside Royal Palm Place, house-made mango sauce, wasabi aioli, and other garnishes douse house signature sushi rolls as teriyaki and tonkatsu entrees crisp atop grills and stoves. The eatery's décor echoes the chefs' commitment to presentation, as lantern-like lights illuminate Japanese statuary and the grain of hardwood floors and furnishings.
A stylish, pitch-black façade with crimson accents beckons passersby into Asia, where they can indulge in hot-off-the-wok chicken and steak entrees, or revel in the rawness of sushi and hand-rolled maki. Like a mashed-potato sculpture of the United Nations headquarters, each feast is an edible testament to a peaceful blend of cultures, with Chinese dishes of crispy duck sharing table space with South American tuna ceviche and Japanese salmon sashimi. Chefs carefully prepare all dishes according to kosher dietary rules.
Amidst the restaurant's funky zebra-print chairs and flat-screen TVs showing the game, guests end meals of pan-seared gyoza or grilled Atlantic salmon with decadent desserts such as chocolate ganache cake or fried gelato. On Saturday nights, diners pair sushi with potent tropical cocktails including minty mojitos or the signature Pineapple Express.
