Inside the Japanese restaurant known as Sakura lies the restaurant's namesake, a cherry-blossom tree, but one that would look extremely out of place in the Japanese countryside. Sakura's tree is a show-stopping creation—a cherry-blossom tree with pink-lighted branches that catch the eye with their neon glow. The tree looks completely at home inside the sleek eatery, where leather and chrome accents reign and purple uplighting casts a soft glow on tables.
The plates that settle onto these tables are just as artful as the decor; for instance, the Bang Bang shrimp appetizer arrives in a martini glass and fresh flowers accompany thinly sliced pieces of sashimi.
