Tsunami’s dim lighting is an abstract burlesque, enrobing tables in an air of mystery while exposing the beauty that lies on the plates. In the darkness, diners can focus on the flavors placed before them, considering each hint of sweet and savory. At the bar, mixologists teach exotic spirits how to mingle gracefully, blending tequila and botanical liqueurs to form cocktails such as the Green Regal and Humpaloma. From here, genial servers whisk more than two dozen varieties of craft beer to thirsty patrons pondering menus filled with Asian-inspired fusion fare and more than 50 types of sushi conceived by executive chef Bobby Massa. A lineup of maki sports geographical influences, from the sriracha and avocadoes of the Miami roll to the smoked salmon, cream cheese, and taxi honks of the New Yorker roll. Filled with gourmet creations such as ahi tuna wonton tacos and wok-seared sea scallops with lemongrass-guava coulis, the restaurant’s hot fare highlights Chef Massa’s whimsy, inventiveness, and extensive culinary training.
