Chefs roll fresh salmon, scallops, and barbecued eel into sushi behind Fuji’s open-air bar and send elegant platters to diners watching every slice or parties gathered in private rooms. Teriyaki-chicken or shrimp-tempura bento boxes arrive filled with neat portions of dumplings and crab rangoons to ensure that meals remain perfectly organized on the trip to the stomach. Pork or chicken cutlets are breaded and fried in the tonkatsu style, and udon or soba noodles tangle with stir-fried vegetables and fish cakes. Hibachi chefs sear filet mignon, chicken, or lobster tails to perfection to complement glasses of Japanese beer, sake, or jasmine tea from the beverage list.

The dental professionals at Comfort Dental Care, led by director Dr. Alan Farrugia, administer exams and x-rays to address cavity-stricken jaws and share Zoom! whitening trays to brighten base smiles. Clients head to the office for a comprehensive examination of chompers' strength, condition, and tendency to bite strangers. Bitewing x-rays showcase the upper- and lower-back teeth, exposing tooth decay. Zoom! whitening trays can illuminate hues several shades, but may be uncomfortable if tooth decay is present, so dentists will advise patients on the decision between the cleaning and teeth-whitening options after their exam. Clients who opt for dental cleaning recline as a hygienist rids grins of tartar, plaque, and long-lost retainers. Panoramic x-ray angles display a broad view of the jaws, teeth, and sinuses to reveal unseen problems such as cysts, infections, fractures, and impacted teeth.
