The chefs at Sushi World take pride in their sushi rolls and Asian fusion cuisine, looking at their creations as not merely food, but edible art. They prepare baked blue-crab handrolls with garlic aioli and strawberry Cypress rolls behind the striking dark-granite sushi bar and send plates of orange-salsa-draped salmon carpaccio out to meet their fate in a flock of four-seater tables. From the kitchen also comes tempura green-tea ice cream wrapped in the same kind of chocolate cake prizefighters are wrapped in after winning a match.
You'll detect hints of Asian spices in many of the dishes at 7 Sea Sports Bar and Grill, from the Thai Basil Cayenne that peppers the popcorn chicken to the Vietnamese barbeque sauce that glazes the Ngon Ngon burger. Aided by the skilled burger-smiths from Savori, the eatery's skilled chefs whip up Asian takes on American pub favorites and fold choice beef and fresh buns into the imaginative, Vietnamese-inspired burgers lauded by reporters from OC Weekly. The chef's Asian culinary influences shine brightest, however, in their sushi—traditional Japanese rolls made from fresh fish and crisp vegetables.
Customers lounge on cushy red banquettes out in the lively dining room, clinking glasses of lychee martinis and coconut margaritas beneath soft blue lighting. Appeasing diehard fans of sports or glowing rectangular devices, massive flat screens speckle the exposed brick walls.
Vases full of orange fruits reflect the bright orange booths that line the walls at Bamboo Grill & Sushi, a casual eatery that specializes in Japanese classics. In the kitchen, sushi chefs prepare traditional philly and dragon rolls along with sushi options for those who prefer cooked fish such as the baked salmon and lobster rolls. Nine healthful salads combine greens, proteins, and fruits including mango and avocado, which diners can polish off with a dish of green-tea ice cream.
When it comes to cooking, Daimon chefs have a flair for the dramatic. The chefs, like U.S. Presidents during their State of the Union addresses, have the power to summon theatrical flames on command, sizzling up strips of chicken, kobe beef, and seafood over tableside teppanyaki grills. Meanwhile, behind the sleek bar, skilled sushi chefs slice up fresh fish before adorning rolls with sprigs of carrots and swirls of sauces. The bartenders are equally creative, blending liquors and fruit juices into colorful cocktails with imaginative names like "Pink Dragon" or "Ferrari Margi."
The atmosphere is bright and energetic in the trendy dining rooms, where vibrant neon sea creatures speckle the walls and soft blue lights cast an oceanic hue onto the massive booths. All the while, an animated crowd surrounds the bar, swilling sake bombs as they snack on sushi or fried rice playfully arranged into the shape of a heart.
The seasoned chefs at Tsunami Sushi augment their tableside cooking techniques with dazzling dramatics, including knife twirling and spatula slinging, as they slice, dice, and sizzle morsels of chicken, steak, and fish atop traditional Japanese teppanyaki-style grills. Sushi gurus also prepare fresh sushi and sashimi rolls as an alternative or supplement to cooked offerings. The full bar offers a lengthy list of liquid meal enhancers, including wine, imported beers, and sake. Valet parking grants patrons a reprieve from finding a space or learning the ancient art of sedan levitation.
