Aikia Steakhouse's staff goes beyond providing food: the chefs make elegant presentation a core part of the dining experience. From arranging sushi rolls artfully on plates to sizzling hibachi entrees on teppanyaki tables right in front of customers, the team takes the doldrums out of dining without the use of motorcycles. Their menu catalogs 20 hibachi dinners, including filet mignon, 28 maki and hand rolls, and several lunch specials. The decor is as upscale as the culinary presentation, with rows of plants set against wood accents and shoji screens marking private tatami rooms.

At Maki Sushi Bar, pale yellow walls accented with a crisp, rust-hued stripe surround dark wood tables and a sushi bar where chefs artfully slice up fresh fish into eye-pleasing Japanese dishes. Before diving into main courses, stomachs warm up with a series of calisthenics and bites of starters such as the gyoza's pan-fried pork dumplings. Signature specials blanket plates with bites from the deep blue, seasoned delicately and accented with unexpected ingredients. The seafood martini hosts salmon, tuna, and seaweed salad in an long-stemmed martini glass. To sip more liquid spirits from stemware, patrons select from a full menu of signature cocktails, such as the Crazy Makitini or the Japanese mojito. After exploring a rainbow of nigiri, sashimi, and maki rolls, tongues delight in tasting sweet bites of tempura cheesecake à la mode or crafting sweet mouth guards out of mochi ice cream.

All Seasons Table Restaurant serves up pan-Asian cuisine that integrates influences from Japanese, Thai, and Malay traditions. The chef crafts gourmet versions of familiar Chinese-American fare, from spicy General Gau's chicken to mongolian sesame shrimp. Diners can sample filets of meat and fish hot from the grill and coated in the Asian-style sauce of their choice. The kitchen also works wonders with lamb and duck—including a marinated half peking duck, which is roasted until tender and served with a feast of pancakes, vegetables, and hoisin sauce.

Shabu Sai Asian Bistro showcases the flavors of Japan, China, Thailand, Korea, and Singapore throughout its eclectic menu. As its name implies, the bistro embraces the communal and relatively healthful method of table-side cooking known as shabu-shabu. Diners begin by choosing a pot of steaming hot broth?such as Japanese-style miso or spicy Korean kimchi?then cook their own meats and vegetables in the sizzling soup base. Ingredients range from angus rib eye steak and scallops to shiitake mushrooms and radishes. Additionally, the chefs round out the menu by serving a variety of familiar favorites, including chicken teriyaki, pad thai, and more than 30 distinctive sushi rolls.

Inside the dining room, rich earth tones lend warmth to the space, complementing the cozy vibe created by the sight of diners cooking together around their tables. A line of chairs also runs the length of the sushi bar, providing guests with an opportunity to watch as the sushi chefs carefully slice each fish and meticulously hand-polish each grain of rice.

Japanese, Thai, and Korean cuisines equally influence the chefs at U-Me Restaurant and Lounge, helping them devise a menu of pan-Asian cuisine. The chefs capture the elegant simplicity of Japanese sushi by rolling more than 40 individual maki, filling them with everything from grilled lobster and cucumber to fried sweet potato and imported oxygen molecules. Pineapple and basil lend a distinctive fragrance to the thai curries, and korean short ribs emerge with a piquant glaze of chili paste.

The dining areas’ clean white walls, warm wooden tones, and marble sushi bar mimic the menu’s restrained elegance. However, the restaurant adheres to its trans-Pacific roots by featuring framed Eastern artwork along the walls and Asian artifacts above the sushi bar.

Though it overlooks Gloucester Harbor, where fishermen haul in the restaurant's supply of fresh fish and lobster, the dining room of Latitude 43 feels like it's underwater. The hull of a 36-foot Coast Guard rescue boat hangs overhead, a 16-foot iron-and-glass octopus sculpture wrought by a local iron artist dangles above the sushi bar, and a harbor mural painted by local artists enlivens the walls. The aromas of coastal cuisine waft through the oceanic interior, signaling the arrival of dishes such as grilled local swordfish, more than 17 sushi rolls, and a host of non-seafood entrees that can be prepared in gluten-free or vegetarians versions.

Because a strong ecosystem produces healthy fish, Latitude 43's restaurateurs do their part to ensure earth's well-being with their green facility. Recycled materials compose the tiles in the kitchen and around the sushi bar, and the deck's sunshades heat the dishwasher's hot water while shading guests from the sun?s deadly laser beams. An oceanfront patio hosts feasts in the summertime, while a fireplace made from locally sourced granite keeps diners cozy in the winter.
