Ricenroll is many things, but the Bellevue restaurant can best be summed up in three words: quick, fresh, and healthy. Oh, and delicious. Here, chefs slice fish to create the inventive rolls that headline the menu, but sushi is only one part of the equation. Other popular dishes include hearty bowls filled with tofu, curried veggies, and teriyaki salmon. And no meal is complete without a bubble tea blended with real fruit and dotted with chewy tapioca balls.
The show is just arm’s length away from diners at Benihana, who watch as outfitted chefs slice and sear their dinner, teppanyaki-style, on a big flat grill in the center of each table. Beyond the visual feast, Benihana’s menu includes everything from steaks and seafood to chicken and unique sides like the Onion Volcano, Flying Shrimp, and the famous fried rice. Showman chefs talk up a storm, cracking jokes, flipping food through the air and showcasing plenty of skilled handiwork, all before serving the hot entrées straight from the grill. Fun business lunches or daytime excursions out with the family are also perfect at Benihana, which features the same visual spectacle during the day, as well as an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet.
Nijo Sushi Bar & Grill fills the hot and cold plates of its lunch and dinner menus with an entire ecosystem's worth of healthy, high-quality ocean animals. Start off a meal with the goma spinach ($6), whose cooked greens are tossed and turned with gomae sesame dressing, or the yam fries, enhanced with wasabi oil, kosher salt, and wasabi aioli ($6), before slurping down a bowl of udon noodle soup ($12) served with your choice of chicken, beef, shrimp, tofu, tempura, or wild mushrooms. Office escapees, meanwhile, can take their minds off their cubicled existence with the orderly cubicles of the savory bento lunches ($12), all of which come with soup, salad, and the daily sushi roll—opt for kalbi beef, fried calamari, grilled salmon, and more. For dinner, famished guests can quiet their stomach's Godzilla roars with a variety of large plates, such as the miso-crusted chicken ($18) with wild-mushroom ragout, baby greens, and a caramelized soy reduction.

When a guest walks into Blue C Sushi, a staff member greets them with a cheerful “Irasshaimase!”—a traditional Japanese salutation that translates literally as “welcome to our store.” That warm welcome isn't the only surprise in store for guests though: a parade of vibrantly colored plates inspired by modern Tokyo subway lines moves past on a modern conveyer belt, dazzling eyes with their delicious and equally colorful contents. Dishes such as cucumber and seaweed salads, or the namesake Blue C sushi roll (with spicy crab, scallions, sliced tuna, tobiko, and shiso) await to be selected directly from the display, and each plate's color corresponds directly to the dish's price and the mood of the chef who prepared it. In this way, guests can build a completely custom meal around any budget, starting with raw or cooked sushi, all the way down to desserts, such as mochi. Of course, the friendly staff members are always on hand to help answer questions about each dish as it ambles past, and to refresh dishes regularly.
