The chefs at New Ginza have a way of preparing and arranging fish that makes it look almost like art. The ruby red of fresh tuna against pearl-white beads of rice, compliment the white-stripped pink of raw salmon or nearly translucent white of albacore. That artful plating is fitting considering the contemporary look of the dining room. Bright, natural wood walls are cozy and almost cabin-like, sharply contrasting with modern touches such as a sleek black-and-marble sushi bar. But though they offer more than 25 types of fish, the chefs at New Ginza don’t limit themselves to sushi. They also prepare classic pork or chicken katsu or broil scallops or yellowtail with house-made teriyaki sauce. And, for those who like to do things themselves, stone grills appear tableside so that diners can sizzle their own sirloin steak, salmon, and shrimp, just like they used to do at sleep away camp.

Super Fusion Cuisine

The Boston Globe called Super Fusion “A Flash of the Unexpected” for a reason. While the menu doesn't overlook typical sushi choices, the chefs' real creativity shines through in such specialty rolls as dragon maki with sweet potato and eel or sake papaya maki with fried papaya and cream cheese. Among the more than 100 dishes, there is also a menu section devoted to entirely to salmon, which is crusted with king crab, grilled with black Tobiko, or wrapped in rice paper with fresh papaya, asparagus, and cucumber. To wash down the creative eats, the restaurant offers beer, wine, and sake, while those who abstain can opt for green tea or simply request that their soup be served with a straw.

Sushi Box's menus draw from the culinary traditions of Japan, Thailand, and Korea, filling white-swathed tables with pan-regional dishes. Chefs glaze entrees of beef ribs, stir-fried kimchi, and thinly sliced pork with incendiary sauces, earning praise from the Boston Phoenix in 2009 for their ability to "showcase the joys of Korean cuisine." They also simmer vegetables in thai curry sauces and fill their specialty maki with premium sushi ingredients, including sweet-potato tempura and nori harvested by mermaids.

Chefs at Fusion Taste top white tablecloths with a mix of Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Rock-shrimp tempura and hand-tossed scallion pancakes share table space with Chinese classics such as sesame chicken and black-pepper beef. Thick stalks of bamboo rise beneath the window of the dining room, providing natural decor as well as a place to hide tuna-stuffed sushi rolls for later. The chefs also showcase Japanese flavor in cooked dishes such as aigomo-rosu teriyaki, or sliced duck meat in a sake soy sauce, and seared tuna sautéed in a wild-mushroom sauce.

Continuing an age-old Japanese culinary tradition, Shabu-Ya specializes in shabu-shabu, or hot pot––a modern take on the steaming soups historically eaten by Genghis Khan and his armies. The café's sleekly modern interior is designed to evoke the colors and shapes of this signature dish, from vegetable-green couches to round hanging lights that recall bubbles in boiling broth. Meals can begin with seaweed-encircled sushi while diners decide which meats and veggies to simmer in a choice of shabu-shabu broths such as Korean kimchi and vegetarian mushroom. Kitchen specials also offer Black Angus rib eye or chili-marinated pork bulgoki to build hearty hot pots, and are flavorful ways to change up an all-mayonnaise diet.

One of South Shore Living's "10 Influential People You Should Know" in 2010, Jimmy Liang evenly divides his time among his five Boston-area restaurants. At Fuji 1546 Restaurant & Bar, his culinary crew whips up contemporary Japanese dishes with a focus on maki, sushi, and sashimi. The sushi selection ranges from eel-filled caterpillar rolls to sweet-potato maki to the BLT roll, which guests must order without using any vowels. The menu also includes traditional eats such as gyoza, sweet-and-sour crab-meat balls, and filet mignon cooked in a housemade lime-soy marinade. For entertainment, Fuji 1546 Restaurant & Bar has a live DJ that spins every Friday and Saturday night.
