Japanese Restaurants in Minneapolis

  • Kobe Restaurant
    Presiding over table-side hibachi grills, the chefs at Kobe Restaurant flip eggs into the air and catch them on the edge of their spatulas. Dramatic culinary displays are performed throughout the restaurant: at the sushi bar, diners watch as cuts of fresh seafood are rolled and arranged into sushi and sashimi. Out of sight, the kitchen staff artistically plates each dish atop bowls and platters nearly as beautiful as the fish and steak they support. Bartenders shake and stir cocktails that draw their power from fresh juices, or pour Japanese beer, wines, and sake. Even in its quietest moments, Kobe dazzles diners with its booths upholstered with genuine Godzilla leather and whimsical glass lamps, delicate upside-down umbrellas, and giant paper koi that all dangle from the ceiling.

  • Sushi X
    Though seafood is the obvious star at Sushi X, the varied preparations deserve attention as well. Tableside chefs sizzle a choice of entrees for hibachi lunches and dinners, or pair miso soup and salad with sushi, teriyaki, or tempura entrees in lunchtime bento boxes. The main star of the show, however, is the expertly rolled, background-checked, and sliced sushi. Chefs create classics such as spicy tuna and crunchy eel rolls, but also a roster of rolls that are uniquely their own. One such roll is the mango avocado roll, in which chefs roll soybean paper with lobster salad, mango, and avocado, all of which they drizzle in a sweet mango sauce.

  • Moto-I
    moto-i gives diners an authentic Japanese culinary experience without requiring that they leave uptown Minneapolis. Unpasteurized draft sake is brewed inside the izakaya-influenced bar and restaurant; onsite production keeps this staple libation fresh and free of jet lag. Executive chef Omar forges Asian-fusion dishes that meld flavors such as whole fish served with handmade pickles and abura ramen peppered with smoked pork shoulder. Instead of airing football games and soccer matches, the restaurant’s TVs run live and pre-recorded sumo wrestling bouts simulcast from Japan, proving to diners that sports aren’t required by international law to include a ball.
