Nama Sushi is named for its wide-ranging list of handmade sushi, but the restaurant's chefs also craft steamy dinnertime feasts featuring nutritious buckwheat noodles, crispy tempura vegetables, and teriyaki specialties. The team whips up seafood-filled udon soups, grills barbecue short ribs, deep-fries pork cutlets, and tosses chicken in spicy sauce. For diversified meals, they pile Japanese goodies onto combination dinners served with mixed tempura, miso salad, and rice.

Although Hamachi Restaurant and Lounge?s culinary team masterfully crafts common sushi such as Alaska rolls and California hand rolls, they don?t limit themselves to tradition. The chefs orchestrate more than 10 original rolls, harmonizing lobster and seaweed salad in the Harajuku and arranging scallop and spicy mayo into the Romeo and Juliet. In addition to rolling delicacies, they compose artful plates of deep-fried prawns with tempura sauce, and beef and chicken lightly coated in a special teriyaki sauce. After meals, diners can groove to tunes spun by live DJs each Thursday through Saturday night.

In the Tao Restaurant kitchen, chefs labor over stoves during the three-day process of crafting housemade noodles and broth for their authentic Japanese ramen dishes. Iron grills sizzle with the meats and seafood of Japanese teppanyaki and teriyaki entrees, and sushi chefs slice up colorful maki rolls, adorning them with flourishes of cucumber flowers, slivers of radish, and intricately sculpted dollops of wasabi. Servers bear plates out into the dining room, where sunlight pours in through towering windows onto sleek tabletops. Nearby, pots of bamboo shake gently as though they were caught in a ge

Kane Sushi's alphabetized specialty sushi menu stretches from A to T. Or, 420 to T, to be more precise. The 420 Roll contains avocado, tempura shrimp, masago, tuna, and unagi. At the other end of the alphabet, the Too Hot for Sheila roll holds extra spicy tuna and avocado inside, and hamachi outside. In between the two, a huge spread of creative sushi rolls offers something for every palate: crab meat and tempura shrimp with garlic (the Nuclear roll); tobiko, kaiwarei, and salmon (the Marcei roll); and a baked california roll with spicy scallops up top (the Mac and Cheese roll).

But chefs don't just work with raw food?they also prepare kitchen entrees. That means deep-fried chicken, whole-grilled squid and beef ribs, and teriyaki.

Japanese cuisine is as much a form of art as it is a delicacy, and the chefs at Little Madfish put their creative talents on display while crafting more than 50 unique sushi rolls. Bento-box lunch specials combine teriyaki meats with delectable sushi, and sushi party platters feed 3–8 people or one shark too lazy to gather its own seafood. Diners can complement their meals of teriyaki-slathered chicken or braised short ribs with sake and imported Japanese beers.

O Chamé’s lunch and dinner menus blend traditional Japanese flavors with California cuisine’s penchant for local produce, showcasing “everything that’s right about ‘fusion’ cuisine,” according to San Francisco Chronicle food critic Michael Bauer. Pass through O Chamé’s entryway, where bamboo stalks and other foliage snuggle up to amorous walls, before sitting down to sample one of more than 20 appetizers in a golden-hued dining area decorated with Eastern-themed scenes. Rafts of fried tofu drift in a sea of fish broth and fresh hijiki seaweed (lunch only), and chefs dress fashion-forward seared yellowtail sashimi in braised-leek and horseradish-sauce garments. For the main course, cooks fill big bowls with steaming broth and udon noodles, crafting eight varieties of the “bracing elixir” Bauer calls one of San Francisco’s finest. Patrons can slurp up such ingredients as grilled oysters or braised beef shoulder with spinach and takuan, a Japanese pickle. Desserts such as poached bosc pear with fresh blueberries cap off dinners with a dazzling mélange of fruits one wouldn’t wear for a night on the town, unlike banana hats or pumpkin daisy dukes.
