Suro pairs a sushi menu filled with fresh selections with a seasonally changing dinner menu. The spring and summer menu featured festive first-course options, like the barbecue-glazed bacon-wrapped shrimp ($9), and the crispy duck spring rolls ($9), while Suro’s mighty main fare pleased protein-lovers, like the Dijon and panko-crusted rack of lamb served over a parsnip puree and drizzled with blueberry-port demi glace ($25), or dayboat sea scallops served over corn fondue and chorizo ($24). Suro also offers pearly portions of fresh nigiri and sashimi ($2+), alongside rolled classics ($5+) and artfully constructed maki. Conquer culinary mountains by ordering the Mount Fuji, a swaddled tuna, salmon, and snapper creation with fresh veggies flash-fried and topped with Suro’s house lava sauce.
Start with a clam basket ($5.95) and savor the hand-dipped mollusks served with fries, or opt for an order of Caribbean stuffed shrimp with crab ($9.95). The Florida-style grill's eclectic menu boasts seafood specialties sure to make any aquaphile's mouth water. Nibble discreetly on the house-made blue crab cakes, drizzled with Caribbean chili aioli ($12.95), or the Key West stuffed grouper, packed full of spinach, scallops, crab meat, and shrimp, served under a creamy white-wine and feta sauce ($13.95). For the seafoodphobic, Snookers offers an array of landlubbing options, such as the build-your-own pizza ($7.95), a pulled-pork sandwich ($6.95), 10-ounce New York strip steak over Jamaican rum sauce ($12.95), and six different choices of grilled beef patties (starting at $5.95). The eatery's lighter salad, wrap, and pasta selections are a satisfying choice for those intent on saving room for an order of banana foster bites with ice cream ($3.95) or bread pudding ($3.25).
Sushi Tsu's talented hibachi chefs create savory masterpieces in a jaw-dropping tornado of blades on the restaurant's grill tables, while skilled sushi rollers craft novel seafood bites. The hibachi menu bursts with Eastern appetizers, including gyoza fried dumplings ($6) and tempura-battered strips of alligator tail ($8). Showboating chefs, each of whom have apprenticed for at least two years under the owner's masterful eye, forge beef teriyaki ($17) and succulent Teppanyaki scallops ($20.50), exciting adrenaline and salivary glands like a ruptured nacho-cheese pipeline. Sushi Tsu’s avant-garde rice rollers eschew humdrum rolls in favor of the eclectic mexican roll ($6) and the lightning roll, an electrifying amalgam of baked salmon skin, wasabi, and fresh veggies ($7). Diners can also grease their fast-working mouthparts with a bubbly selection of Japanese beers ($4+).
Shogun Sushi's Manhattan-trained chef rolls a bounty of eye-catching sushi rolls alongside the menu's eclectic selection of classic Japanese entrees. Appetizers include beef negimaki ($6.25), thin slices of teriyaki-broiled beef that wrap themselves around zesty scallions to disguise themselves as sushi rolls in an attempt to fool steak-knife search parties. Fried asparagus, bacon, and tuna entwine within the Longly Angel roll ($13.95), crowned with three kinds of fresh fish and a rainbow of colorful tobiko, and the Russian Roulette roll ($11.95) protects its tender interior of spicy tuna, masago, and cucumber with a vivid shield of tuna and spicy mayo. The kitchen also whips up a range of grilled and golden-fried delights, including teriyaki, tempura, and curry dishes ($10.95–$18.95), which complement uncooked edibles like a midnight french-fry soirée in the grocery store produce aisle.
Both Oishi Japanese Restaurant's locations showcase Asian-inspired décor, from the ceiling covered in bamboo accents to the marble-topped sushi bar framed by a glass case of seafood. Chefs entertain lunch and dinner diners with "fire shows" at hibachi grills where they sear vegetables, seafood, meat, and wrinkled shirts. Diners also cozy up to unfinished wood tables and booths as servers deliver spreads of Japanese steakhouse cuisine, fresh sushi rolls, and desserts.
