Mr. Sushi Japanese Restaurant
The sushi bar is the centerpiece at Mr. Sushi Japanese Restaurant. With its own wooden roof and wraparound corners, it accommodates several diners at a time, as well as multiple chefs who bustle behind its glass displays. There, they prepare classic sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls, and wrapping rice around specialty rolls with intriguing names like Tiger Eye and Green Mussel Dynamite. There's even a mini-version of the bar that chefs bring to special events, enabling them to craft sushi on-location, anywhere instead of only booking birthday parties held at fish markets. Aside from sushi, the seasoned staff also cooks traditional Japanese entrees such as teriyaki chicken, tonkatsu––a fried pork cutlet––, and negima beef, which is sliced and wrapped around green onions. Large enough for two, Nabemono specialties combine flavor with fanfare—they cook at the table in a pan or a bowl. One such dish, yosenabe, stirs seasonal seafood, chicken, tofu, yam noodles, and vegetables in a zesty house broth. If the heat proves too much, there are always glasses of chilled imported sake to help cool things down.
