Chef Aron Li is picky about the fish that goes into his sushi, favoring the cuts of Scottish salmon and fresh tuna from local japanese markets. The skilled sushi chef folds lobster, Alaskan king crab, and caviar into a sweeping variety of both traditional and inventive rolls and tops them off with imaginative ingredients such as fresh mango and wasabi mayo. As Aron slices, chef Yu San captains the grills, where he sizzles up tender morsels of steak, chicken, and red snapper for the teriyaki and hibachi-style dinners lauded by reporters from Newsday. To craft his specialty black cod, the expert chef grills fresh cod and mixed vegetables in a savory miso sauce. Come lunchtime, he turns his attention to lighter dishes, adorning crispy mushroom salads in healthy dressing and tying hibachi steaks to helium balloons.
Guests perch at tabletops and in traditional Japanese booths in the sleek dining room and sip premium sake and fruity cocktails. Soft lights dangle from the ceiling, bathing the stone-tiled walls in a warm glow.
