The menus at Sakimura's two locations change regularly in order to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients and the chefs’ newest culinary muses. The Simsbury location is known to intermingle traditional Japanese flavors with contemporary flourishes, with specials taking forms such as foie gras with sweet miso sauce. Both locales’ sushi chefs also invent their own creative rolls, such as a deep-fried Godzilla roll and an Out of Control roll filled with shrimp tempura and topped with seared pepper tuna.

Diners seeking a hot dinner can gather around hibachi grills and watch as chefs sear their choice of shrimp, chicken, scallops, filet mignon, or any number of other gourmet ingredients. The hibachi rooms' smokeless grills and modern yet warm decor combine to create a pleasant dining experience.

Start with crab-and-parmesan-stuffed mushrooms ($7) or pull out your scrimshaw spoon for New England, Manhattan, or Rhode Island clam chowder ($4/cup). Filet of sole stuffed with lump blue-crab meat ($18) reconciles the sea's two most notorious enemies, and swordfish cipolla parries a seasoned swordfish steak with a heaping helping of caramelized onions ($17). Resist flatware hegemony by getting your hands on a toasted roll topped with butter-sautéed lobster (market price), or give in to the powerful lettuce lobby with a pan-seared sea-scallop salad ($14). Any fish in the joint can also be baked, grilled, broiled, fried, or seared and plated with stir-fried veggies for $15.

K. LaMay's Steamed Cheeseburgers charms taste buds with trademark patties, which have garnered a Best Burger ranking from the Record-Journal in 2009, 2010, and 2011 in addition to hearty press coverage. Slices of sharp cheddar cheese migrate from Wisconsin to roost atop beef slabs fresh from the steamers, creating single ($4.50) or double ($6.50) steamed cheeseburgers engineered by vapor king Kevin LaMay and his jovial staff. Diners can veer jaws and dexterous elbows away from the joint's namesake to nosh on a steak sandwich ($4.99) or a dozen chicken nuggets ($3) and repose their meaty treats on crispy beds of fries or onion rings ($2.50). Patrons can prompt bubbly abdominal sensations with sips of locally made Foxon Park sodas ($1.50), which perch in a cooler alongside hunks of the signature cheese available for purchase.
