Fin Sushi & Sake Bar knows that one way of showing respect for classic recipes is to play with them. The menu presents guests with two types of appetizers: traditional and fusion. On one side, edamame and gyoza tempt with rich, familiar tastes. The chefs aren't even afraid to slide their sushi into the oven?the baked-snapper roll basks in the heat alongside garlic butter?though they prep snow crab, tuna, and salmon in several uncooked staples as well. This creativity rewards diners with both proven Japanese entrees and inventively flavored plates.
To accompany the food, a compilation of more than 30 hand-selected sakes delivers tastes that range from sweet and citrusy to dry and complex, and brimming cups cross over a luminous blue bar on their way to tables.
Chow Asian Street Food whisks diners down the bustling pavement of China, Thailand, and Japan with authentic home-cooked dishes such as savory soups, noodles, curries, and fried rice. With a cornucopia of comfort fare at their fingertips, guests can fill fingers with grippable morsels such as crispy straws with shrimp and cream cheese ($5) or fresh crab-and-avocado spring rolls ($7). A steaming bowl of tom kha soup with chicken and a coconut milk ($4.25) runs across tongues with calming comfort akin to licking grandma’s favorite quilt, and red curry with chicken, beef, or tofu relaxes an overwhelming need for flavorful spices ($10.50). Guests can twirl fork tines in eight different pan-fried noodle plates, including pad thai ($8.90) and chow mein ($8.90), or quiet hunger with the crispy catfish gently massaged with chili powder ($15).
Diners won't be distracted by loud music or garish decor at Masu Hibachi & Sushi?here, the food is the star of the show. The menu highlights a massive selection of more than 70 sushi rolls, which are all handcrafted behind a long wooden sushi bar. On the other side of the restaurant, specially-trained hibachi chefs sear steaks, seafood, and teriyaki chicken behind four central hibachi grills, where they add a dramatic flair to mealtime by performing fire tricks, showcasing jaw-dropping knife skills, and placing tiny top hats on each shrimp. Diners can even mix and match these culinary styles by adding a roll or two to their hibachi meals, which already come accompanied by soup, salad, a shrimp appetizer, and steamed rice.
