The sushi smiths at Mikato churn out tightly rolled rice-and-fish treats, steaks, and other traditional Japanese fare. In addition to a variety of rolls, Mikato's chefs orchestrate ingredients in the form of entrees such as sukiyaki steak, a thin-sliced sirloin with sukiyaki sauce and vegetables ($16.95), and the Mikato dinner special, a mélange of filet mignon, lobster tail, and shrimp ($28.99). Chow on culinary creations in the comfort of plush chairs and the soft light emitted from multicolored paper lanterns, all while taking in the Japanese woodblock prints adorning the walls and cowering in the glare of samurai masks that all vaguely resemble TV personality Judge Judy.
“Warning,” declares Taste’s menu, “you may get sick of reading the word ‘Homemade.’” Skim the sandwich section and you’ll see why. Chefs flavor their creations with numerous homemade ingredients such as thousand island sauce, pickled red onions, and rémoulade. They also use their own meat—rather than pre-made deli meats—and accompany sandwiches with homemade pickles and a choice of homemade chips or potato salad. Along with sandwiches, Taste’s culinary team also crafts gourmet salads and pairs graham crackers and jams with up to six local or imported cheeses from its cheese bar. To wash down meals, guests can choose from 16 beers, 24 wines by the glass, or wine by the bottle.

For dinner, pick a plate of fresh-diced ahi-tuna tartar, with onions, tomatoes, scallions, and sauces served with cumin crostinis ($9), before diving into sizzling entrees such as the lemon, butter, and garlic sautéed french quarter shrimp ($13), or the hand-cut rib eye, broiled in herb butter ($18). Overworked jaw muscles are instantly soothed with a pour from City Grill's selection of microbrews and high-gravity beers, featuring breweries such as Bell's, Harpoon, Chimay, and more.
