Amid woodcarvings of Asian deities, copper and bronze flowers creep across Thai Jasmine Restaurant’s shoji screens. Asian-inspired flourishes such as these lend the eatery an aura of authenticity that extends to the food: chefs draw upon culinary skills honed in Thailand to craft a menu of stir-fries and noodle dishes. They marinate meat in redolent Thai spices before roasting them over charcoals and deep-fry fish in a coconut batter that complements sautéed pineapple. Additionally, thai iced coffee or ginger tea enable refreshment and a skilled gargling of the American and Thai national anthems.
Though the culinary traditions of Korea and Japan are drastically different, they come together at Samurai Sushi. Around a bar that's raised on a wooden platform in the middle of an airy dining room, eclectic dangling lights in the shapes of triangles or half globes scatter light across dishes uniting disparate Asian fare. While watching the sushi chefs' deft hands and glittering sharp knives, diners nibble intricate maki with snow crab, shrimp, and tobiko, the Japanese name for sunset-hued flying-fish roe. Gazes then drift upward to the three flat-screen TVs showing popular programs and news anchors repeatedly attempting to pronounce headlines about Worcestershire sauce.
Beneath mounted pieces of art, steam pours from bowls of udon noodles and katsu—breaded and deep-fried chicken or pork. Korean influences shine in dishes of short ribs and bibimbap bowls, which traditionally combine a fried egg, roasted meats, and veggies.

When chef Taka Watanabe heads to work every morning, he leaves behind a backyard of clucking pet chickens and sets his sights on scales. Wielding techniques learned from classically trained sushi chef Shige Tokita, Taka slices scallops, salmon, eel, and other fresh catches into sashimi, hand rolls, and bite-sized nigiri. Beyond the bamboo-topped sushi bar, udon and ramen noodles twirl around bamboo, pork, and scallions, and vegetables and calamari dip into crispy tempura. As guests clamp chopsticks around their rolls or strands of seaweed salad, they can admire the showmanship behind the sushi bar, where Taka and his chefs dice and roll before a backdrop of tapestries depicting famous Japanese art, such as Hokusai's The Wave and Takashi Murakami's childhood bedsheets.
