Whether they're delicately rolling rice around veggies and seafood or arranging a visually arresting plate, Soya Sushi Bar & Bistro's culinary experts approach every step of their sushi making with artistry. They fill rolls with ingredients such as quail eggs and fatty tuna and craft california roll variations such as the Lion King, a cali roll with caviar sauce, which never fails to send guests home with a hankering for Elton John's unique brand of adult-contemporary piano rock. Sushi aside, chefs douse Chilean sea bass in a sweet miso sauce, whip up classic tempura udon, and pair stir-fried veggies with hibachi-style lobster tail, chicken, and scallops. Meals unfold in the oceanfront restaurant's serene dining room, which surrounds guests with Japanese-inspired decor.

It might seem like a contradiction that Volcano Sushi Bar specializes in uncooked fish. But the “volcanic” part of the restaurant’s name comes into play in the restaurant’s spicier signature seafood rolls, such as the Spicy Omy God roll, the Volcano roll, and the Spicy Tuna roll, as well as in the decor, which features warm orange and yellow walls. Beyond the fiery realm, the chefs assemble a wide variety of artful sushi that incorporates yellowtail, eel, and smoked salmon as well as vegetarian options such as the sweet-potato roll. You also can find a multitude of other Japanese staples on the menu, such as yakisoba, crispy-tempura shrimp, and teriyaki salmon.

The gleam of razor-sharp knives flashes from behind the sushi bar at Domo Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, where chefs slice sashimi and assemble maki rolls before elegantly plating each dish. A tempura volcano roll clasps crab and tuna at its core, and fried oysters fraternize with eel, red snapper, and tuna in the Godzilla roll. Domo’s chefs also glaze chicken, beef, shrimp and other seafood with teriyaki sauce for diners that prefer their food to be slightly sweet and cooked, much like the books of a corrupt accountant in Candyland.
