Sushiya Japanese Restaurant and Bar's culinary craftspeople concoct an extensive assortment of sushi rolls, hot and cold Japanese appetizers, noodle dishes, entrees, and salads. Inspired by Tokyo’s combined restaurant/sports clubs, Sushiya divides its interior between a dining room and an entertainment area with televisions broadcasting the latest sporting events, news programs, and goldfish beauty pageants. A full bar pairs cuisine with authentic Japanese sakes, exotic beers, and international wines hailing from locales such as Spain, Argentina, Chile, and California. Flanked by custom-designed fixtures, hardwood floors fashioned from exotic woods cradle rows of tables as lamps and candles conjure an intimate eating atmosphere.
The same master chef has captained the sushi bar at Sushi Kawa Sports Bar & Grill for more than a decade, folding fresh scallop, tuna, and salmon into a sweeping array of colorful specialty rolls. As he works, a team of kitchen chefs whips up tender teriyaki dishes, flavorful Japanese curries, and simmering udon-noodle soups. Diners await their meals out in the sleek bar area, sipping on specialty cocktails and sharing giant towers of draft beers beneath the glimmer of widescreen TVs. Twice a month, a live guitarist appears on the scene and fills the room with the melodies of classic-rock, jazz, and country tunes.
After honing his sushi-making skills for decades at Sayaka Japanese Restaurant, Miguel opened his own restaurant with his own style of sushi. Sushi Miguel's Style means artful rolls topped with crumbled tempura placed delicately on a granite tabletop. Miguel's style is thick hand rolls bursting with spicy tuna and nigiri topped with bright-pink salmon and doused in tasty sauce, adding color and flavor to palates.
Diners at Sushi Area 909 wash down sashimi, teriyaki, and 62 fresh, creative sushi rolls with 15 types of sake and 12 different beers. The Soy Lovely roll cradles crispy shrimp tempura with tooth-easy crab and fresh lettuce ($8.95), and the Viva La Vegas roll combines four kinds of fish with avocado, cream cheese, and a roulette-wheel garnish ($7.95). Diners can also sink incisors into fresh sashimi such as the spicy-tuna plate ($10.95) or slurp tangy sauce from chicken, beef, or salmon teriyaki ($9.95–$10.95). All meals commence with a complimentary serving of edamame—tender, lightly salted soybeans perfect for launching across tables at unsuspecting dates.
