The chefs at Crave Sushi construct pieces of edible Asian art in a sleek lounge with accents the ruby-red hue of ahi tuna. Owner Linny Hoang's chefs give maki a makeover at a sushi bar, slipping blades through inventive ingredients and twisting soy paper or seaweed into creations including the Cheetah roll, a bundle of surimi crab mix, cream cheese, and cucumbers dusted with Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Diners stroll past, crowded bento boxes tucked beneath their arms, or linger postmeal over homemade fried-banana wontons and electrically hued drinks. Bubbies mochi balls are imported from Hawaii to draw grins, much like a long-lost cousin on a confusing sitcom, and happy chatter fills the lounge late into the evening on weekends.

To create Japon Sushi?s Cherry Blossom roll, chefs wrap fresh seafood and veggies inside a cucumber skin, and then float the bundle in a house-made vinaigrette sauce. The creative roll, almost like edible art, joins two dozen signature rolls that pack ingredients such as crispy crawfish tail, spicy escolar, and lobster salad inside sesame soy paper and egg sheets. Other dishes include: stuffed avocados, tofu steak, baked mussels, homemade gyoza and vegetable dumplings. The eatery?s hot entrees embrace tradition with bowls of ramen and pork belly, plates piled with teriyaki-glazed steak or shrimp fried rice, Katsu curry, and udon.
